Sean Rowe (USA)

A voice from the deepest basement, an acoustic guitar and songs with loads of soul. Since 2004, American Sean Rowe has made six solo albums, the latest being The Darkness Dressed In Colored Lights from October 2021, recorded in Wisconsin with the hailed sound magician Brian Joseph (Bon Iver) in the engineer’s seat. Fine reviews ensued. He toured Europe in December 2019.

Sean Rowe was born in 1975 in Troy, north of New York. His musical career started in the coffee bars and small venues in his native town. In 2004, Sean Rowe put out his first album, and two years later a live album under the name Mudfunk. His 2009 studio album Magic really set things in motion. That year, he opened for the British band Noah And The Whale on a tour of Great Britain. That led to a recording contract with the ANTI- company, which released two albums by this American songwriter. Alongside his musical life, Sean Rowe is a nature activist and has blogged on the topic for years. Solo at Tønder Festival, his only Danish festival concert in 2022.
