Ron Hawkins has long been revered as one of Canada's greatest contemporary singer-songwriters.
As lead singer/multi-instrumentalist and main songwriter of Canada's legendary Lowest of the Low, Ron Hawkins has enjoyed many accolades through the years:
In 1996, 2000 and again in 2005, Chart Magazine honoured the group's 1991 debut album, Shakespeare My Butt, with spots in the top 10 of the Top 100 Canadian Albums of All Time. In 2000 and once again in 2015, Hawkins was voted Songwriter of the Year by NOW Magazine's reader's poll. Also in 2000, Ron received Toronto station 102.1 The Edge's Lifetime Achievement Award. In 2008 The Lowest of the Low was inducted into the Canadian Indie Rock Hall of Fame and awarded gold records for Shakespeare My Butt.
Over the years, Ron has written and released four LOTL albums, five solo discs, three records with his band The Rusty Nails, and two records (one a double album) as Ron Hawkins and The Do Good Assassins. Adding them all up, Ron has released 15 albums of original material to date and has just released Shakespeare My Box a commemorative vinyl box set of the entire Lowest of the Low catalogue.
My little home studio is only nine feet by nine feet but its packed with toys and musical goodies. Its a bit like going down the rabbit hole.
The most talked about Jeff Woods attribute is his voice. It has been heard on radio and television for decades. Jeffs career continues to be about communication and he is known for sounding as though he's speaking just to you, despite the fact that his reach has extended to a weekly audience exceeding one million listeners.
Beyond talking on the radio and television as a host or a guest, Jeff's presence continues to extend to commercial voice-over and narration, and to the stage as an emcee and speaker.
Woods has been at the center of conversation and context around music for 30+ years. He was the creator and host of The Legends of Classic Rock, heard internationally over 14 seasons. His many one-on-one interviews include David Bowie, R.E.M., The Rolling Stones, The Eagles, Led Zeppelin, Fleetwood Mac, Rush, Ozzy Osbourne, The Band, Pearl Jam, Carlos Santana, Metallica, The Doors, AC/DC, Pink Floyd, and so many more.
Jeff's current radio series "Records & Rockstars" complements his artist interview/performance podcast of the same name, and his first work of non-fiction in print - the acclaimed "Radio, Records & Rockstars, now out in Audio Book and selling at Amazon, Audible & iTunes.
