Sean Rowe Announces Spring 2013 Tour

Extraordinary singer and lyricist Sean Rowe has announced a series of North American live dates for the spring of 2013. He will be on tour with the acclaimed English musician Marcus Foster. Rowe will be playing in support of his sensational new album 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 Magic with a work that brilliantly reconfigures classic sounds in support of his intensely observational lyrics and remarkable and ever evolving vocals. The album 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 Boys' 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.

"The singer's approach to music, particularly his take-it-or-leave-it attitude, is fierce and uncompromising." - Interview Magazine

"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 Street Journal

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