Biography
Ted Hawkins
Cold and Bitter Tears
Rounder Perfect 10 Series

Before the release of his 1982 debut album on Rounder Records, Ted Hawkins earned his living by busking on the boardwalk at Venice Beach, California, a venue that he never completely abandoned. Yet, Ted was a world-class singer with one of the most powerful and moving voices in American music, as well as a deeply personal songwriting style that drew equally on soul and country roots. He went on to record for other labels, but these tracks represent the true and unmitigated soul of Ted Hawkins.
