Friendly Rich Teams Up with Hawksley Workman and Kevin Breit For New Album

The eccentric Canadian musician Friendly Rich is excited to release his 11th studio recording on Sept 14th 2017, entitled THE GREAT BLUE HERON. Recorded at Hawksley Workman’s Burks Falls studio, this recording is a shift for Friendly Rich, working with a different lineup than usual.

Featuring Hawksley Workman (drums, synth) and Kevin Breit (bass, mandolins, guitars), this record takes Rich’s compositions and adds a unique element to the sound. It’s swampy, gritty, and weird as ever!

“For years, Hawksley and I have been trying to work together, and when this opportunity came up, I pounced on it” says Rich, “When Hawksley suggested adding Kevin Breit to the mix, I knew we were in for an epic journey!”

The recording will be officially released on September 14th, with a European tour and select Quebec/Ontario dates to be announced soon. It is already available for iTunes pre-order at
