New Roots presents…. I See Hawks In LA

“The finest country rock band on the planet” – MOJO

“A superb ensemble with a serious pedigree in California’s roots-rock scene.’ Uncut

June 2018 will bring a new CD release from Southern California’s leading country-folk-rock band I See Hawks In L.A.: “Live AndNever Learn”. The Hawks are noted for their lyrical celebrations and lamentations of earth and ecosphere, odes to the endless highway, and wry social commentary. They’ve gathered a loyal tribe around the globe, from many U.S. And European/UK tours, consistently rave reviews from critics, and a serious presence in the top 10 of the Freeform American Roots chart (#1 three times), the Americana Chart, and the Euro Americana chart (top ten several times).

Their superb country-rock pedigree includes band alumni David Jackson (Dillard and Clark, EmmyLou Harris), Brantley Kearns (Dwight Yoakam, Dave Alvin), Paul Marshall (Strawberry Alarm Clock) and Shawn Nourse (Dwight Yoakam), and guest collaborators Chris Hillman, Rick Shea, Cody Bryant and Danny McGough. Along the way they’ve shared the stage with Lucinda Williams, Dave Alvin, Old 97s, The Mavericks, Peter Case, Bernie Leadon, Meat Puppets, and Ray Wylie Hubbard.

They bring their four-piece acoustic incarnation to the Green Note for this very special two-set performance- don’t miss this superb incarnation of genuine LA country-rock royalty!

‘They’re adding much-needed musical and lyrical complexity to the old forms, stretching the terrain to thrillingly new and unfamiliar points beyond.” – John Payne, L.A. Weekly

‘If the Eagles in their Hotel California heyday represented the Orange County picture everyone believed, I See Hawks In L.A document the reality of the 99%, set to a soundtrack of weeping guitars and three part harmonies’ Shawn Underwood, Twangville

‘I See Hawks in L.A. are California Country Rock gentlemen. They have a literary sense to their songs that equals American writers from the South (Faulkner), the West (Twain, O. Henry) and the East (Poe). Their music reflects the moods and emotions of the songs characters as much as the men behind the curtain that pulling the strings and writing the word…..The Hawks are a rock band with a Roots accent’. The Alternate Root
