DEBUT ALBUM ‘SON OF THE SMITH’ OUT NOW

SEAN McGOWAN leaps into Winter 2018 with a spirited new single: ‘Romance Ain’t Dead’.

Arriving with an adorably animated video (featuring a certain punk-poet protagonist in cartoon caricature), Sean’s latest single ‘Romance Ain’t Dead’ is a ska-tinged scorcher sure to warm the cockles right through the winter months.

Opening-up about ‘Romance Ain’t Dead’, Sean says: 
 
“Romance Ain’t Dead is a song about escaping the mundane. I spent so many hours people-watching and day-dreaming whilst working in retail. Hoping for a bit of adventure and spontaneity. It’s a hard one to sing but satisfying to play!”
 
The single arrives as Sean plots a series of big European support shows with kindred spirits: The Levellers. Joining his fellow South Coast folk punk heroes for the whole run, Sean will find himself back on home turf again for dates in Cardiff, Brighton, Bristol, Norwich, and Nottingham as the leg bends back to Blighty (21-25 Nov). 

Then, driving home for Christmas to the promise of his biggest ever hometown gig Sean will be receiving something of a hero’s welcome as he headlines Southampton’s 1865 on 15th December – a show euphorically dubbed: ‘SEAN McGOWAN: THE SON OF SMITH COMES HOME FOR CRIMBO’. Featuring a very special guest TBA, the last few tickets are available HERE
Sean McGowan released his “outstanding” (8/10, Louder Than War) debut album ‘Son Of The Smith’ via Xtra Mile Recordings label earlier in 2018. A year Sean surely won’t be forgetting soon, the young and talented punk poet has pin-balled across Europe performing with his heroes Billy Bragg, Will Varley, Skinny Lister; worked with coveted songwriter and producer Get Cape. Wear Cape Fly.; released a string of infectious singles including ear worm ‘Cuppa Tea’; AND even performed to a momentous SOLD OUT crowd at Southampton’s legendary Joiners venue in his hometown.
