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.
