The Train Wreck Endings / Press

“Hawk pens ear-candy melodies, but he adds stunningly sharp, witty, funny, and poignant lyrics to the mix as well, which means the more you listen, the more “wow” moments you have.”

“There are so many intangibles, so many things that are absolutely unquantifiable that play into success [but] I think they’ve got a damn good chance of becoming more than a local band.”

“("Sorta Kinda Maybe") is the best album I’ve heard in quite a few years. These guys will become more well-known soon. You should get this one and appreciate the terrific songwriting and performances. This band has the songs.”

“This, my friends, is a talented group of musicians that effortlessly blends folk, blues and rock into their own special brand of truly American music. ”

“This release, like the previous two, does a great job of stepping aside from the rest (of the folk-rock/blues artists) and illustrates what can be achieved thanks to some great songwriting and top-class musicianship.”

“One of the greatest thrills of Bob Dylan’s live performance is that he always has an amazing band behind him. Well, like Dylan’s band, the Train Wreck Endings accentuate Hawk’s lyrics and allow him to shine.”

“If you are planning a road trip anytime soon this album should be on the list of essentials, along with the cooler and just ahead of the strippers. ”

“As the opener and title track kicks in Hawk's world-weary, seen-it-all voice hints at Ray Wylie Hubbard and Ramblin' Jack Elliot before levelling out to a mere two pack habit drawl. Some of his insights into life on the road are startling, backed up by the multi talented Steve DeVries on tracks like "New Orleans" and "Lipstick & Dynamite".”

“Is “honest” a genre? Because if it is, that’s the word I choose as it best describes not only this latest release but the entire Hawk discography. ”

“Hawk’s songwriting has never been stronger as he takes us on a journey through neighborhood bars and late-night diners and we come out the other side intact and glad for the trip. ”
