"THE NEW CANADIAN COUNTRY ARTIST OF THE YEAR 2011"
"A super talented multi-talent on the guitar."
"Wrapped neatly in a ten song package, Hawthorne’s "The King of the Broken Hearts" is a treat from beginning to end.
"A fantastic classic country singer. The kind that I can listen to. He sings really well and makes it solid. He is a sample of why country music used to be good. So may they let him in so that we can bring back the good stuff." Ryan Fletcher - host of CJSF's "Melodies in Mind"
