Sean Rowe is at Knuckleheads on Tuesday
Sean Rowe looks like a fearsome mountain man with his thick, serious beard and chiseled features. Similarly imposing is his voice — a deep, wild rumble seemingly more beast than human — that rips through his latest album, Madman. If Nick Cave were to forsake his rock-and-roll inclinations, he might sound like Rowe, whose Spartan folk songs have the same chilling effect as Cave’s Push the Sky Away. Rowe storms from verse to heartbreaking verse on Madman, his voice ever louder. Madman he may be, but one you should get to know Tuesday at Knuckleheads.
