Sean Rowe takes LA

Something to listen to this morning: Sean Rowe's live set from yesterday's Morning Becomes Eclectic, the famous show on KCRW in Santa Monica.

Wrote MBE's producer before an interview with Sean on one of the station's blogs:

Sean Rowe is a talented singer-songwriter with a profound baritone voice. I remember the first time I heard a song on our show, I was immediately riveted not just by the voice, but by his writing. His songs have a reflective depth to them. Intrigued, I wanted to see if his live show would match the debut I was falling in love with so headed over to McCabe's Guitar Shop where played an enchanting set, fully cementing my appreciation for his music.

And from a recent LA Times post about Sean:

Don't be fooled by the quiet nature of Sean Rowe's music. These are songs that are unexpectedly disarming. First, Rowe's baritone commands attention -- a deep, lived-in, worn-out and seen-it-all voice, one belonging to a barroom storyteller with a slyly understated grasp of melodic twists and turns. Then, his lyrics don't leave much room for a listener to turn away.

Sean's album, Magic, was released by the ANTI- label this past February. He's playing shows in Europe in June, and then a few dates with Josh Ritter back in the States in July (including Oneonta July 6).

Comments

How come none of these interviews ever mention that Magic was originally released on Collar City Records? This was a pretty great success for an awesome local label, and they're getting no love.

I know some people get excited when they hear that some chain from outside the area is coming to the Capital Region, but I'm not one of them. Local businesses mean local dollars; the money stays here rather than going to a corporate headquarters far, far away. If Price Chopper is sold to an outside company - especially a company that answers to its stockholders more than its customers - that could have a huge impact.
