SEAN ROWE PREMIERES VIDEO AT AOL SPINNER

AOL Spinner is premiering a new video by the extraordinary singer and songwriter Sean Rowe. The clip is for his song “Downwind” from the new album The Salesman and the Shark available in stores today. The track is an engaging burst of re imagined pop featuring Rowe’s powerful baritone layered over a reverb drenched surf guitar. As Rowe explains, "Musically I was drawing something from the Ventures. Chris Kyle from the band Railbird performs the lead guitar and I think he was in some kind of crazy mental space when we recorded it as is evident by his ripping solo at the end of the track." The highly atmospheric clip was directed by photographer Marius Bugge and shot on location amidst the landscapes of Rowe’s native upstate New York.

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.

Early Reviews of Sean Rowe’s The Salesman and the Shark:

"This man can sing, and his new album The Salesman and the Shark is a masterwork of song, production and voice. This record is outstanding.”– NPR “All Songs Considered”

"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

"Sean Rowe's songs cast a hypnotic spell via his golden baritone. His sophomore release, The Salesman and the Shark, is filled with beautiful soulful lyrics." – KCRW

"Destined to become a timeless classic" – Performer Magazine

"A truly beautiful voice, wizened through experience and practice, lyrics well worth returning to again and again, and enough soul to smother an orphan." Threeimaginarygirls.com
