With vocals as deep and somber as the leaf strewn forest floor, Sean Rowe, a singer/songwriter from Troy, N. Y. offers listeners nature-infused acoustic work reminiscent of a time where humans were more connected with their surroundings.

It is easy to hear and Rowe's deep sense of naturalism and connection with the outdoors in his every breathy whisper and plaintive strum.

Rowe holds more than a mild interest in the natural world. Having studied under survival expert Samuel Thayer, Rowe pulled through many nights alone in the woods, hunting and gathering, surviving on berries and even passing on his passion and skills to other budding nature enthusiasts.

Beginning his music career in 2003, Rowe built a modest following before linking up with percussionist Marco Harber. The two went on to record a few early projects, including tracks that would comprise Rowe's first record, "27."

In 2009, Rowe opened for Noah and the Whale on a string of European dates. Soon after he signed with ANTI- Records and they re-released the album "Magic," which had been issued earlier on Collar City Records. In 2012, Rowe released "The Salesman and The Shark" and each of the albums, in their own way, sport simplified sonic similarities to sounds achieved by the National and, arguably, the Airborne Toxic Event.

Rowe opens his KDHX in-studio set with "The Game," which pulses with a dark ebullience, settling into nearly a tantric mantra of "ah mama my" during the chorus. "Girl From the North Country" puts a delightful, yet somehow more melancholic, spin on the classic tune. The confessional and swanky, "Joe Cult," from 2012's "The Salesmen and the Shark," closes out Rowe's set with back alley smoke ring vibrations and subdued bombast.
