Praise for ‘From Zero to One’ (2018):
'Hawk, despite his age, manages all this while attending to multiple matters of the heart as if he’s some longtime student of emotional zen, a mastery most evident in the guy's lyrical finesse, From Zero to One playing out like a quick encyclopaedia of notable couplets'
Dave Cantrell, Stereo Embers Magazine
'an engaging set of songs ... a gentler soul with a direct eloquence to his music'
Fiona Shepherd, The Scotsman
'When he plays, Hawk combines wild eyed surprise with an all knowing smile - not only does he looks startled at his own turn of phrase, his lyrics take on new meanings once you feel you're already in on the joke. It's a great trick.
And the tunes are GOOD.'
'If The Smiths, The Strokes and Siouxsie & The Banshees morphed into one, then low and behold, you would have the unstoppable sound of Hamish Hawk & The New Outfit.'
Pulling influence from early David
Bowie with his manicured yet frantic
delivery ... Perhaps it’s the plush suit but
there’s something of the David Byrne
about his sharp and ernest delivery. Every
vocal line feels like a nervous twitch that
simply has to be put out there like some
'gorgeous, erudite indie-pop'
Nicola Meighan, BBC Radio Scotland
