Troy, N.Y., native Sean Rowe is a throwback to 1970s-era soulful rock poets like Leonard Cohen, Bruce Springsteen, and Van Morrison. Rowe boasts an impossibly deep and rich baritone, a gift for melody, an innate sense of groove, and a knack for the perfectly hewn image to get across his haunting, brooding folk-rock and soul anthems. He’ll be performing in the wake of his just-released album, “New Lore,” recorded at Sam Phillips Recording Studio in Memphis. Rowe’s new album has been called “a road map for a gentle heart in modern times, in a world where the best oracle isn’t within a computer, but within ourselves.”

A lifelong naturalist, Rowe’s spare, organic approach and poetic simplicity at times recalls Greg Brown, another folk-rock poet with a deep growl. Other influences include Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, John Lee Hooker and Ray Charles, all of whom can be heard in Rowe’s vocals, rhythms, and percussive guitar playing.

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
