New Sean Rowe Video Featuring Live Performance Premieres Via Esquire

Esquire is premiering a new video from the remarkable singer-songwriter Sean Rowe. The clip is for the song “Shine My Diamond Ring” from Rowe’s forthcoming album Madman in stores this September 9th. The unique video deftly replicates the visceral power of Rowe’s soulful new album with a filmed solo performance shot entirely live.

There is a noticeable Delta blues influence on “Shine My Diamond Ring” with its driving repetitive guitar and stomping bass drum. “The guitar sound was influenced by John Lee Hooker,” Rowe says. It is a dually powerful and intimate singing and playing honed to absolute perfection amid a year performing in living rooms across the country on Rowe’s deliberately unorthodox “House Concert” series http://rowehouseconcerts.com/

With the new album Madman, Rowe has created a beautifully primal work. The album is deliberately, if not defiantly, simple in both arrangement and composition. It is soul music in the purest and most literal sense, hypnotic rhythms, warmly distorted guitars and Rowe’s incredible voice recalling a time, real or imagined, when music and people seemed distinctly more connected.

Sean Rowe will be touring North American in support of his new album Madman beginning later this month.

"He can just crush granite with that voice. It is so powerful.” - NPR Music
