Sean's playing a hometown show @ the Hangar on the Hudson
"We are the elders of our minds, sings Sean Rowe on Gas Station Rose, the track that ushers in his fourth album, New Lore, with plaintive plucks of guitar and steady drips of piano that fall in like rain. Its a sparse and beautiful moment, anchored by Rowes unparalleled voice so full of gravely soul, aged and edged by years on the road, as a father and husband, as a creative force always looking for the next rhyme. And, so integral to the man that he is, one that is constantly absorbing nature. It wasnt the easiest journey to get to the ten vulnerable songs that comprise New Lore (out April 7th care of Anti-) it took a label change, a trip to Memphis and some support from unexpected places but what resulted is a roadmap for a gentle heart in modern times, in a world where the best oracle isnt within a computer, but within ourselves.
Though Rowe has often made his hometown of Troy, New York and its surrounding areas his creative base, New Lore brought a new environment, and a new producer. Appropriate to his love of folk-blues legends like Howlin Wolf, he ventured to Sam Phillips Recording studio in Memphis to work with Matt Ross-Spang (Jason Isbell, Margo Price). They tapped into the history of the legendary space to hone a sound that is at once rich and stark, putting Rowes deep and dynamic rage at the forefront. Because if high notes can shatter windows, Rowes low and guttural ones can meld sand into glass."
