I SEE HAWKS IN L.A., Southern California’s leading alt country/folk/psychedelic Americana group, is releasing its 8th CD with a UK tour. Known for catchy tunes deeply rooted in California influences like Merle Haggard, The Byrds, Gram Parsons, but with their own fearless take on tradition, the Hawks deliver a powerful live show with signature three part harmonies, soulful lead singing, and inventive lead guitar.
“The Hawks could easily accomplish musically the Eagles sound, but they’re smarter than that, they take more chances, their sense of humor is near boundless. This is an amazing album. All the disparate parts fit together wonderfully, telling a story that is tragic, comical, and all too true, in a way only a band as brilliant and as fearless as I See Hawks in L.A. can.” –Roy Peak, The Rocking Magpie
“The alternative folk/ country Americana world would be a darker place without I See Hawks In L.A. – it’s unlikely that anyone else could deliver their tight harmony vocals, skilled musicianship, inspired melodies and richly hooked, eminently memorable songs – and their latest outing ‘Live And Never Learn’ is the band on top form on all counts. The raw honesty
remains, as do the songs that effortlessly touch those heart and soul parts of their listeners that consistently bring them closer to the depths of the messages.” — Tom Franks, Folkwords
“One of California’s unique treasures.” — Dave Alvin
Former Guitarist of the Year Cris Tolley teams up with Montparnasse singer Celine Dommart to play songs that draw on Country, Bluegrass, Swing and Rockabilly roots. Original songs and Americana classics featuring harmony vocals, acoustic guitar and bass. www.keepmepostedband.co.uk
