Ontario’s Hawksley Workman has released his latest single, “Battlefords”, off his upcoming full-length release, due later in 2019. Currently touring across Australia, Workman will return for a string of performances across Ontario this December.
Workman describes “Battlefords” as “is a piece of Canadian nostalgia, celebrating life in rural Canada in the 1980s, and the emotion and innocence that was specific to a quasi-technological time in the late 20th century”. Musically, the song is centred in modern folk rock, only to be accented by lush strings and Workman’s melodic vocals.

I’m Gerrod, a Toronto based writer and musician. As soon as I started drumming, music became one of my greatest passions. Since then, I have also picked up the guitar, bass, and a hint of the piano. I am currently studying music and education at York University, and drum in a local hard rock band, One In The Chamber. This puts me right in the heart of Toronto’s growing music scene.
