Doug Hawco Album Release + Tye Dempsey

  • August 2, 2018
    9:00 pm - 12:00 am

Hard-working local Doug Hawco celebrates the release of a new album – Follow – with his debut show at The Carleton on Thursday, August 2nd, along with fellow singer/songwriter, Tye Dempsey. Show time is 9 PM and admission is $8 at the door.

Doug Hawco is a musician based in Halifax, Nova Scotia. His new album, Follow, is out now!

In February 2017 Doug released his 2nd full length album called Life on the Water and his latest singe, Follow, was released in February 2018.  Thanks to influences as disparate as U2, Ryan Adams, country legend Garth Brooks and the traditional styles of Great Big Sea, his songwriting is emotive rather than genre-specific. Thanks to a strong work ethic (Doug’s performed over 1000 shows in various parts of the world) his live act plays well to festival audiences and intimate rooms alike. 

Windows down and stereo up, you’re cruising along a country back road… The sounds flow strong and steady through the speakers… For reasons unknown, your spirits soar… In that moment, all is well with the world. Somehow you just know: everything’s gonna be alright. That feeling is the essence of Tye Dempsey’s music.

This singer/songwriter from Canada’s East Coast, grew up listening to classic rock and traditional roots music that resonated deeply with that sensation of simple freedom. Seeing it as a duty and honour to impart those vibes to future generations, his stellar songs and engaging performance shine with an inherent optimism… and it’s contagious. Melodic guitar mixed with true-to-life lyrics and catchy song structures prove that this young gentleman is future-bound and flying fearlessly, yet often glancing through that gleaming chrome rear-view mirror of the past. The tank’s full and the rumble-seat’s ready, so why not hop on for the ride? You’ll learn anger is never the answer, but good music always is.
