Ron Hawkins, one of my all-time favourite songwriters, and his band The Do-Good Assassins have a new album called Garden Songs coming out on February 3.
Most of these songs have been released previously, but these are all-new versions of some of Ron's most contemplative tunes.
1. Peace and Quiet
2. Kingdom of the Sun
3. South Ontario
4. Small Victories
6. Garden Song
7. Saskia Begins
9. Waitin' on Something That's Already Here
This video for "Kingdom of the Sun" was shot at Toronto's Don Jail. What a beautiful, evocative tune with fantastic harmonies. Great song!
