Sean McMahon & The Owls

  • The Grand Junction Hotel 88 Church Street Maitland, NSW, 2320 Australia (map)

In September last year, Sean embarked on a 24 date solo tour of the east coast to coincide with the release of the single 'Spring', which won many critics praises "On his incredibly endearing new track Spring, the artist weaves together elements of folk, rock , Americana, and alt-country to deliver an earthy sound that belongs entirely to himself.  The new track sees McMahon traverse through immersive storytelling and folk-infused, heartfelt soundscapes to deliver a new single that feels simultaneously mellow and adventurous."- Happy Mag

 

Now he’s headed our way again, with his band the Owls by his side, to celebrate the release of his the new LP - You Will Know When You’re There.

 

From the stark confession of openers ‘One Foot Out The Door’ and ‘Angel At Your Back’ to the sheer intimacy of ‘Outsider Blues’ and ‘Just For An Hour’, McMahon brings a quiet yet commanding authority to this record. Amid wry and poignant observational lyricism lies the utter timbre of McMahon’s voice; a gentle ache that coaxes delicate, earworm-like melodies. 

Uncluttered and focused in its arrangement, this is a confident record that ebbs and flows lightly, yet displays immense character and weight with each pressing moment.
