Richard Hawley

Gretsch Guitar Skin Design Competition!

 RICHARD HAWLEY

Announces

Gretsch Guitar Skin Design Competition!

http://smarturl.it/RichardHawleyGuitar

Richard Hawley is inviting fans, artists and creators to take inspiration from his brand new Mercury Music Prize shortlisted album Standing at the Sky’s Edge by designing a brand new Gretsch® guitar skin.

 The winning design will receive a black Gretsch® G5420T Electromatic® Hollowbody.

Sheffield-born Hawley released his seventh album Standing at the Sky’s Edge in May 2012 to critical acclaim. With tracks including “Leave Your Body Behind You” and new single, “Seek It”, there is plenty to take inspiration from when submitting your designs.

All designs must be submitted by October 25th, 2012.

The winning design will be revealed on Friday November 16th, 2012.

Enter the competition here: http://smarturl.it/RichardHawleyGuitar

On working on his latest album The Mercury Prize Shortlisted Hawley said I wanted to get away from the orchestration of my previous records and make a live album with two guitars, bass, drums and rocket noises!

“Gorgeous”

-Under The Radar (7/10)

“Beautiful”

-NME (8/10)

“A masterpiece”

-The Guardian (5/5)

“…an essential listen”

-AllMusic (4/5)

“Richard Hawley holds a torch for the craftsman.”

–Consequence of Sound (4/5)

“Brooding”

-Mojo (4/5)

We recently released a live video of Richard performing “Seek It”, the second single off of Standing At The Sky’s Edge. One of the more tender moments from the album, “Seek It” is a questioning, wistful love song with Hawley’s gift for crafting a beautiful melody clearly on display.  It’s simple, cyclical chord sequence underpins a wry lyric where the protagonist has a weird dream, has his fortune misread and urges the person of his desires, “if you seek it you won’t find another’s eyes so blinded by love.” The song is Hawley at his most lilting and poetic.

 Recorded in Sheffield at Yellow Arch Studio in 2011, Standing At The Sky’s Edge marks a seismic shift in direction for Richard. Mirroring the blasted industrial sunsets of Sheffield, Hawley partners his distinctive fluid snarl with blazing electric guitar, spray-painting his audiences senses with a new sound, embracing the ever-changing landscape around him. The overall effect is hypnotic and psychedelic, casting a euphoric stage for Hawley to unleash some of his most tender moments to date.

Watch an intimate track-by track interview with Richard here.
