Sean McGowan — ...
You can sum up the journey of Seán McGowan, the son of the smith, with the title of his first EP on Xtra Mile: Graft & Grief. Work and stress. Life at the anvil and hammer, bearing the brunt of life’s weight. Since 2009 he’s been at that grindstone, gathering stories and carving melodies while working late nights in bars between shows armed with just an acoustic guitar. Somehow the perpetual “new artist”, even as others adorned with that title come and go, and Seán is still at it allowing the songs to pour forth like the finest lager.

Whether performing with a band or as a solo artist, Anna's Anchor never fails to impress. Marty is doing this whole run with Sean and we couldn't be happier. Indie-punk rock songs full of heart, reflection, and hope, if you're not already familiar you're going to leave this show a fan.
Arms & Hearts — armsandhearts.bandcamp.com/
Heart on your sleeve, Revival Tour inspired, acoustic punk rock from Manchester. One of our favourites.
