SEAN ROWE Announces Fall Tour Dates

Sean Rowe will be touring North America performing songs from his extraordinary new record The Salesman and the Shark now out on Anti. Rowe has a baritone of other worldly power and emotional conviction that demands attention. On the new album he follows up his critically heralded debut Magicwith a work that brilliantly reconfigures classic sounds in support of his intensely observational lyrics and remarkable and ever evolving vocals.

The Salesman and The Shark was recorded at historic Vox Recording Studios in Los Angeles utilizing the same mixing board used to make timeless classics such as The Rolling Stones Exile On Main Street, T-Rex’s Electric Warrior, The Beach Boy’s Smile and seminal works by Tom Waits, Neil Young and more. Appropriately, the sounds on Rowe’s latest are a perfect blend of the warmly familiar and astonishingly new.

Included on the upcoming tour are two notable benefit shows. The first is a performance at the Colony Café in Woodstock with English folk singer Laura Marling. The evening is part of radio station WDST’s “Pink October” event to benefit the Dyson Center for Cancer Care in Poughkeepsie.

The second benefit is an intimate house concert in Pennington NJ at part of the Candlelight Concert Series. The performance will be streamed on line to benefit epilepsy charities. For more info go to: http://www.candlelightconcert.org

"Mr. Rowe's ringing baritone is as timeless as his approach, recalling the ecstatic intensity of late-'60s Van Morrison and stark subtlety of late-era Johnny Cash.” – Wall St Journal

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