“Few pleasures equal that of watching a gifted musician hit the track and just sail on out there. You’ll hear a lot of tradition in Sean McGowan’s guitar: Christian, Burrell, Farlow, Pass. You’ll also hear the sound of a musician finding the groove – his groove.”
James Sallis, author of The Guitar Players: One Instrument and Its Masters in American Music
“Sean McGowan is the most promising young solo guitarist I have ever heard. His first CD, River Coffee, paints a broad, beautiful picture of his enormous virtuosity, unrelenting musicality, playful sense of humor and remarkable knowledge of musical history. Guitarists will weep yet laugh with delight as they try to figure out what he is doing, and history will remember Sean as one of the most important guitarists of his generation.”
