The Last Day of Winter (cd)
‘The Last Day of Winter’ is the follow up album to Jed Rowe’s critically acclaimed ‘The Ember and The Afterglow’ (2012). Whilst the new record retains Rowe’s signature electric slide guitar playing, Rowe was also keen to expand his creative palette beyond the power trio format of bass, drums and guitars. Enlisting ARIA award winner Jeff Lang for the second time as producer, Rowe also brought in Cat Canteri and Justin Bernasconi of The Stillsons. Both has worked with Lang on other projects over the past year, and Rowe felt that this dynamic team would help create the right environment for his song-writing and performances to find their mark. The result is a diverse collection of songs which focus on Rowe’s deft touch with story and melody, with an emotional depth that resonates after the final note falls away. ‘The Last Day of Winter’ was released on May 29th, 2015.
