Ron Hawkins (Lowest of the Low) has long been revered as one of Canada’s greatest contemporary singer-songwriters. Prolific as he is, Ron followed up his Feb. 2015 release of Garden Songs, with SPIT SPUTTER & SPARKLE, continuing to exemplify his skills with a word, a hook, a riff and a melody to display some of his finest work to date. In 2016, Ron released via Pheromone Recordings, the album features 11 new originals, including the first single, Beautiful Girl.
Over the years, Ron wrote and released three additional LOTL albums, five solo discs, three records with his band The Rusty Nails, and in November 2012, Ron and The Do Good Assassins released the double disc Rome. Adding them all up, Spit Sputter and Sparkle is Ron’s 15th album of original material.
Chosen as the Young Performers of the Year at the 2017 Canadian Folk Music Awards and Best Young Songwriters at the 2017 Toronto Independent Music Awards, Moscow Apartment is driven by a mixture of sweet harmonies and belted refrains, acoustic shimmer and electric crunch, and the clever wordplay of multi-instrumentalists and versatile vocalists Brighid Fry and Pascale Padilla.
