Howdy folks. It took me a couple of days to understand what was going on with this album, but now I know everything. This album, the second one by singer-songwriter Sean Rowe, was first released in 2009 (via CD Baby). Then he was signed to Anti Records in 2010 and they are now releasing this very good album again as a 2011 release. Yeah, it was not so hard to understand when I found all the information I needed. Anyway, give it a try and enjoy!

(Note: this guy has a wonderful voice!)
