Rowe has a baritone of other worldly power and emotional conviction that demands attention. NPR’s All Songs Considered says of Rowe vocals on his extraordinary new album The Salesman and the Shark, ““He can just crush granite with that voice. It is so powerful.” The Wall Street Journal proclaimed, “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.”
On The Salesman and the Shark, Rowe delivers 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 Boy's Smile and seminal works by Tom Waits, Neil Young and more. Appropriately, the soulful and evocative sounds on Rowe's latest are a perfect blend of the warmly familiar and astonishingly new.
