‘Here There's No Sirens’ the debut solo album from Case Hardin frontman Pete Gow, has recently been released on Clubhouse Records. Long regarded as one of the UK's finest songwriters, Gow delivers an album rich in songwriting prowess and full of evocative imagery. A storyteller at heart, Gow conjures up a modern day classic that entwines itself around your heart whilst penetrating the soul, underlining his reputation whilst stretching the band confines into new pastures. Awash with strings and piano, ‘Here There's No Sirens’ is undoubtedly Gow's boldest endeavour yet but one that provides arguably his greatest triumph.
Unflinching storytelling of the highest order'
RALPH McLEAN - BBC RADIO ULSTER
'A remarkable record, engendering, in varying proportions, elements of beauty, discomfort, empathy and guilt.'
FOLK RADIO UK
'Tears In Your Eyes and Songs For Your Heart...A thing of raw and aching beauty'
"Effortlessly earns Gow a place among 2019's finest solo debuts, a reminder, were it needed, that he's one of the finest songwriters in the business..."
Pete will be accompanied by a five-piece string section and has assembled a band of "Clubhouse All-Stars" featuring Joe Bennett (Piano/Organ/Trumpet/Harmonies), Fin Kenny (Drums/Percussion/Harmonies) and Tristan Tipping (Bass) who between them have played with a who's who of contemporary Americana acts including The Dreaming Spires, Bennett Wilson Poole, The Raving Beauties, Co Pilgrim, Society, Paul McClure and the Local Heroes, Luke Tuchscherer, Austin Lucas and many more.
