“Featured download of the day” 

Bud Scoppa (Uncut Magazine)

“An expertly but casually played effort crammed with rock solid songs. The existential ballad “Fallen Satellites” is a classic.”


“Immensely catchy hooks and sharply written lyrics;  a damn fine release with a healthy dose of attitude and swagger… color me impressed!”

No Depression

“Somewhere between Tom Petty and Band Of Horses. It begs repeated listenings, becoming more embracing with each hearing.  These songs sound like they’ve been circling around in the ethos indefinitely and Bowe has successfully lasso’d them down to earth. In a word, outstanding.”

Jos van den Boom (Crossroads Radio, Netherlands)

“IT’S GREAT!!!!! I already played a track last week and it will be added to my playlist often”

Mike Penard (ISA Radio France)

“I am particularly impressed with your expressive voice, the depth and perfect sound, great spirit and energy all along the tracks. I’m adding 5 of your songs to my playlist!”
