Sean McGowan by Ben Morse

In the run up to his debut album release, lyrically dextrous folk-punk troubadour Seán McGowan has shared an intimate new interview and session video ahead of his European tour.

Heading out on tour Seán will be stopping off in Ocelotshire with The Cellar, Oxford June 8 and Reading’s Rising Sun Arts Centre,  June 9.

Featuring a stirring solo acoustic session of Seán performing currently unreleased track Springhill, the video also sees the budding singer-songwriter open up about family, football, his current influences, as well as lifting the lid on what to expect from his eagerly anticipated debut album release Son of The Smith.

The exclusive video was shot just hours before Seán took to the stage of the hallowed Shepherd’s Bush Empire earlier this year, while supporting Xtra Mile Recordings compadre Will Varley on his latest UK tour.

The video arrives as Seán prepares to go to back to his homeland with a series of Irish shows throughout this week that begin at Cork’s Brú Bar (March 6) and wind up in Belfast this weekend. Seán will then tackle an extensive run of UK and European dates over the coming months as he tours Son Of The Smith.
