Acclaimed singer-songwriter Sean Rowe will be releasing a new album entitled New Lore care of Anti- on April 7th. The first song to debut from the album is entitled "Gas Station Rose" a bittersweet road song built around a simple guitar, some well placed piano chords and Rowe's soulful and convincing singing. The emotional build reaches a heartrending crescendo with some strings and backing vocals.

"I wrote the melody while in Las Vegas," Rowe explains, "I knew there was something to the song because I loved to play it. Lyrically it's about overcoming obstacles and looking for a place to hang your hat. The characters in the story are in it together. It's not easy but it's worth it. The line, "we are the elders of our minds" means that we control our own destiny, that it's what we believe about ourselves that determines where we go."

Listen to Sean Rowe's "Gas Station Rose" here:

New Lore's simple yet powerful sound focuses on Rowe's renowned baritone and evocative songwriting, delivering a collection of affecting stories of desperation and resilience. His voice is beautifully augmented throughout by tasteful arrangements including flourishes of piano and a string section. The album was recorded in the city of Memphis at the historic Sam Phillips Recording studio and produced by Matt Ross-Spang who began working at the legendary studio when he was 16 and recently won a Grammy for his work with Jason Isbell.

Rowe says of the album, "This is a record about loneliness and a longing for connectedness. This yearning for a sense of home. Musically, I think this record is more focused than any before. I've become really aware about what it is that I do well, allowing my voice to come through and lyrically grabbing people with the stories.. Those are kind of my superpowers. The instruments on the record never intrude on my voice and words."

It is a sound that echo's Rowe's recent crossover hit "To Leave Something Behind" a song that resonated with a whole new wider audience after being featured in the recent Ben Affleck film 'The Accountant.'

"His voice comes not from the lungs or the diaphragm but from deep in the soul and lights up the most primal regions of your brain" – American Songwriter
Girl Blue
Girl Blue
Girl Blue is the brain child and alter ego of singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Arielle O'Keefe.She debuted with her first recorded release on October 5, 2016, with an EP titled "I Am Not A Star", introducing a new sound that blends raw soul and rock with keen pop songwriting sensibilities. She is a fierce and dynamic vocalist and performer, and an accomplished writer and lyricist with "…a depth in [her] words that belie her age". Audiences have summed up her live performance as follows: "There is nothing that can prepare you for the force of emotion and the passion that comes when she begins to sing." And it's not only audiences who have taken notice. The moniker maybe new, but Arielle has been invited onstage to sing with such names as Ingrid Michaelson and the legendary Rod Stewart. She spent a time writing for other artists under Universal Music, has creatively collaborated across the country, and had a television debut on the "E" Network's program "Opening Act". And now she moves forward as Girl Blue, just a girl and her songs with a mission to stay true to the craft and let nothing stand between good music and an audience
