Because of the nature of his burred baritone -- and these profound and emotionally deep songs -- it would be wrong to say this debut by New York singer-songwriter Rowe is "exciting". That might give the impression of pulse-racing music . . . and this isn't like that at all.

Quite the opposite, it can be heart-stopping.

But it is genuinely exciting to hear such a mature, provocative and flexible voice -- from almost gospel-blues to alt.folk and bedroom ballader -- married to lyrics which can have that slightly disconcerting quality of Tom Waits ("I was digging for gold in the rubble of a Catholic church, I found a wine bottle and a cardboard box that I had to search"), or the emotional and spiritual spirit of Jeff Buckley ("She changes her skin, he falls out of religion and washes his sins . . .").

There is also an up-close and intimate nature to this album which was recorded in Troy, upstate New York, and the lean arrangements keep the lyrics and delivery immediate.

In some reviews Rowe has invited comparisons with Leonard Cohen, but that draws a long bow. Mostly what you hear is the rather a more sober and the street-poetics sound of early Waits where the world is full of rust and stale wine, the moon rains down like broken glass and "I thought love is just a strip mall, baby you were a surprise".

There is death here too (Jonathan, which could be Bill Withers or Gil Scott-Heron on a bad trip where the car crashes in a world of reality and remembering) as well as a kid shifted from one trailer park to another town and saying to his mother, "If he hits you again, I will be your man and I will pull him out, you don't need to cut your life on these razor blades or these kitchen knives".

I heard Sean Rowe on NPR Mountian Stage while driving and paused to find out the Artist. Actually reminds me somewhat of Greg Brown. My Husband (now Deceased) was the DJ for the household for over 30 years and he would have loved Sean Rowe. I am just now feeling out my own vibes. ROCK ON!

I was marketed this album to via Fb and was pissed at first that FB did that. But I got on amazon and listened to some tracks and then downloaded album.
Wow, love, love , love this album. SR is a cross between Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen and Nick Cave.
Youtube videos don't do the album justice, you won't be disappointed and will love it.

This is an excellent follow up by Sean Rowe. His soulful voice, great guitar and heartfelt lyrics are classic. I highly recommend both this album, and his first offering, the album "27".
