The Good Intentions are delighted to announce that several years of transatlantic co-writing and recording have now culminated in the imminent release of “Hawks With Good Intentions”, an album made with our good friends I See Hawks In LA. The record is a mix of West Coast country rock, British folk and timeless tunes, and we are all delighted with it. Further release details to be announced shortly.

Our great friends from West of the Sierra Nevada, I See Hawks In L.A., are releasing their first album in five years on 29 June: “Live And Never Learn”.
This would always be exciting news – as Dave Alvin said, they are “one of California’s unique treasures” – but what makes this release particularly exciting for us is that two of the songs on the record – “White Cross” and “Singing In The Wind” – were co-written by Paul Lacques and Rob Waller of the Hawks together with TGI’s Peter.
A pre-release review of the album says:
‘On an album full of great-sounding tracks, it is two songs that were co-written with Peter Davies of the UK’s Good Intentions that really stand out…”White Cross” and “Singing In The Wind” have intelligent lyrics, great melodies…’
It is an honour to work with such wonderful musicians, and we look forward to the Hawks’ UK summer tour, when we hope to share a stage and a beer or two with them.
Buy the record, and go and see them.
Bien hecho, amigos!

Happy Independence Day to our friends across the ocean, two of whom will be joining us for adventures in Twickenham on 16 July. We return to one of our very favourite venues, the Cabbage Patch, where the regulars will just have recovered from the excitement of the Lions’ NZ tour, and will be in need of some soulful country music. We will be opening the evening at the wonderful Twickenham Folk Club for our Nashville pals, Eric Brace and Thomm Jutz. Earlier that afternoon, at around 4.00 pm, all four of us will be playing a few songs in store at Eel Pie Records, the new, but old school (yay!!), record store recently opened by Drumfire Records head honcho Phil Penman and his partner. Eel Pie Records is right on Church Street, in the heart of Twickenham, and we are told that wonderful coffee is also available. It should be a fun afternoon and a great evening. Hope to see you there.

Our friend Mark Indictor has produced three new videos of The Good Intentions playing live in Altadena, CA last October. Featured are “According To A Witness”, “Appalachian Girl” and “Your Old Flame”, the latter two from the new album “The Long Unbroken Line”.

Mark is actually playing some wonderful fiddle on a couple of the videos, and has done a fantastic job with the video production.

“The Long Unbroken Line” has received 4.5 stars and a great review in Maverick. The album is described as “a fine effort, which should help the duo cement their reputation as a top British Americana band”.

Country To Country Festival

10 March 2017

Apologies to any of you who were going along to Country To Country at the O2, London, this weekend, hoping to see us play.
We felt that we had no choice but to pull out of the show, for reasons we have referred to the Musicians’ Union.

Graham Seaman

2 February 2017

If you’ve been to one of our more recent shows, you might have noticed that another guitarist has been sneaking onto the stage with us. This is the redoubtable Graham D’Annunzio-Seaman, an old friend of ours, who has been playing guitar, mandolin and bouzouki with us, as well as adding some killer harmony vocals. As was the legendary Ian Stewart to the Stones, so is Graham to us.

He will be with us at our next show – 23 February at the Cavern, at Jimmy Rae and the Moonshine Girls album launch.


20 January 2017

“The Long Unbroken Line” has been included at #3 in his Best Of 2016 by the legendary Spencer Leigh, of Country Music People and BBC fame.

This is indeed a thrill for us – Spencer is well known for not being afraid to write a bad review! – and we’d like to thank him for his integrity and his support.
