Sean Rowe Announces January Tour Dates, Preview "The Walker" From His New Album 'Magic'

Anti- Records artist Sean Rowe will be embarking on his first ever West Coast tour at the beginning of the new year. Rowe is a profoundly soulful artist, utilizing an extraordinary baritone alongside a poet's skill to deftly conjure images of a world in which man and nature exist uneasily side by side. His Anti-Records début album Magic was recorded in a small town in upstate New York above the space where Rowe's grandfather once ran an Italian restaurant. The recording process, as he describes it, was intimate and incredibly specific. Brushes of fingertips on strings, hushed breaths, even the darkness of the studio seeps its way into the record, enhancing its live, trembling feel. "I wanted to create an abyss, something to take you far away, a dark but familiar space for people to get lost in," Rowe explains. The end result has drawn comparisons to the classic works of both Leonard Cohen and Van Morrison.

You can preview a song from Rowe's remarkable debut album Magic entitled "The Walker" which has also been included on the new Anti Records Fall Sampler. To hear this powerful and moving new song, just go href="http://soundcloud.com/antirecords/sean-rowe-the-walker/s-OoNcV ">here.

"With a distinct voice, excellent storytelling ability and songs that showcase the writer's great potential, don't be surprised to hear a lot more from this New Yorker in 2011 and be transfixed by his Magic." - Filtermagazine.com
