About Richard Hawley

Richard Hawley first found success as a member of the band Longpigs in the 1990s. After that group broke up in 2000, he later joined Pulp, led by his friend Jarvis Cocker, for a short time before embarking on a hugely successful solo career, releasing eight studio albums and receiving two Mercury Awards nominations. Richard has also collaborated with and written songs for such legendary artists as Nancy Sinatra, Artic Monkeys, Shirley Bassey, Lisa Marie Presley and Duane Eddy. He remains a huge influence on the British music scene and beyond.

When I first plugged my guitar into the Artisan 30 I was immediately smitten. When you play quiet it responds and when you dig in it follows you. I love it.
