Album Review: Sean Rowe - Madman

29 August 2014 | 4:37 pm | Carley Hall

Where Rowe eases off with the scatty horns and sparse lines he intensifies that deep, resonant voice of his, making whatever he turns his hand to almost hypnotic.

More Sean Rowe More Sean Rowe

Throughout his humble output, blues folk baritone Sean Rowe has epitomised more than just that nostalgic Americana persona; in Madman he adds a more pared back but intense slant on a simple composition of that voice and his players.

Shine My Diamond Ring is intensely likeable as the upbeat roadhouse track with tinkling ivories, The Game a sweet acoustic retrospective softy and the dirty guitar-filled Done Calling You slides south into its Delta roots. Where Rowe eases off with the scatty horns and sparse lines he intensifies that deep, resonant voice of his, making whatever he turns his hand to almost hypnotic.
