"an impassioned, unconventional cover...Little Lawnmowers’ take on the classic tribute to loneliness is painted in considerably warmer tones, featuring a Latin drum ensemble and lush vocal harmonies."

The accumulation of original music influenced by American roots, early jazz/blues, and world grooves, Little Lawnmowers delivers an emotional musical experience ranging from the ambient to intense. Employing diverse musical traditions of fingerstyle guitar, a suitcase drum/auxiliary percussion, and original lyrics, songs of stories of life, death, love, the bizarre, and a life on the road are conveyed through Hawkins' unique performance style and the thumping of the suitcase-stomp drum.
