To launch his album, Love, Heartache & Oblivion, Folk Thief will be
hosting a CD release party at the Railway Club with special guests Blind God
and Carolyn Mark. Folk Thief is the latest incarnation of Dave Hadgkiss, an indie singer/songwriter based right here in Vancouver. Influenced by the likes of Townes Van Zandt, Bob Dylan, and Nirvana, Folk Thief is excited to be bringing his brand of heartfelt acoustic folk/pop to Vancouver, and soon, across Canada.
Love, Heartache & Oblivion’s sparse instrumentation and honest, heartfelt lyrics create a genre defying effort. Co-produced and recorded by Mike Cashin (Western Telegraph, Michael Bublé) at the Recording Room in east Vancouver, the album explores some of life's most powerful experiences with love songs like “Heart Beat” and “Brand New Love,” to the intense and frighteningly beautiful, “The Devil Behind Me”. Folk Thief says, “I write songs about love, heartache, death, fear, anxiety... I’m just crafting sound in an attempt to convey emotional truth.”
