Richard Hawley: Sophisticated Pop
A guitarist, singer, songwriter, and producer, Richard Hawley is best known for his work in the U.K. bands Longpigs and Pulp. Now a versatile and charming solo artist, he's enjoyed a career renaissance in recent years.
Hawley has released four solo albums to date, most recently last year's Lady's Bridge. The disc expands on the sophisticated pop-rock sound Hawley has honed over the years, especially after the Mercury Prize-nominated Cole's Corner.
In addition to his solo work, Hawley has also collaborated with artists such as Hank Marvin, Pulp's Jarvis Cocker, and Gwen Stefani.
