captain of all her dance classes at the Leesville Dance Department…served as president and founding member of high school Knitting Club…It's rare to find a great talent appearing out of the blue with an exceptional album recorded with stellar musicians, but Kete Bowersis such a rarity. Blues singer/songwriter Kete Bowers new album Paper Ships, is set for release on June 28/19 on Current Records, and includes nine original songs produced by Michael Timmins of The Cowboy Junkies, and features members of The Cowboy Junkiesand Skydiggers.The stone cold beauty of this collection of songs is the combination of Bowers’ heartfelt and often gut-wrenching songwriting with a distinctively rich voice and Timmins trademark crisp production that forces the listener to listen intently to every damn word and chord progression.Northern Town which starts the album and sets the mono-tone was originally conceived as a commentary about living in and eventually leaving Birkenhead between 1976 and 81; but sadly could have been written any time in the last 5 years as it’s just as pertinent and observational today in 2019.

But being the dogged character he is, Bowers sent out even more e-mails and a Canadian record label picked up the challenge alongside Michael Timmins from Cowboy Junkies agreed to be Producer too.
So; hopefully you’re not expecting a happy go-lucky collection of dance tracks after that are you?
