Acclaimed singer and songwriter Sean Rowe will release his new album Madman on September 9 on Anti- Records.
Rowe spent the past year or so traveling the country with his guitar, performing in people's living rooms for a series of house concerts. We LOVE those. So intimate.
Now that's how you get an album full of a life lived.
In a deliberate contradiction to the prevailing expectations of a professional musician, Rowe chose to interact with fans in the most intensely personal manner.
Swoon! We crush on him, musically speaking.
The sound of Madman is influenced, in large part, by the hypnotic driving guitars of Delta blues. "I was listening to records by R.L. Burnside and John Lee Hooker and others which are basically just guitar and drums and really raw sounding," Rowe said. "I was also listening to the early soul records like Otis Redding and Ray Charles. I didn't want to try and duplicate those sounds, just take aspects of them and make them my own."
Anyone plan to sonically hang with the Madman that is Sean Rowe this September?
