Album Notes

Denis Fortier, radio personality - CHUN FM

"A super talented multi-talent on the guitar."
Joey "Shithead" Keithley, Canadian punk legend, DOA - Joey "Shithead" Keithley, Canadian punk legend, DOA

"Wrapped neatly in a ten song package, Hawthorne’s "The King of the Broken Hearts" is a treat from beginning to end.
Spencer Perry - Radio Wrangler

"A fantastic classic country singer. The kind that I can listen to. He sings really well and makes it solid. He is a sample of why country music used to be good. So may they let him in so that we can bring back the good stuff." Ryan Fletcher - host of CJSF's "Melodies in Mind"
