But Kete Bowers is such a rarity. His songs you won’t forget. His voice is rich and deep. And deep felt.

This is a very special artist whose time has come.

Digital single ‘Winner’ is due for release in May 24th 2019, with the album due in late June (28th) 2019.

“I don’t put myself in one particular genre; I write songs that cross many genres – Rock, Folk, Blues and Americana, etc.,” he says.“I was born in Birkenhead just across the river Mersey from Liverpool. A year or so before I was due to leave school it became clear that there would be few or no jobs or apprenticeships available. Our school careers lessons were about how to fill in a form and sign on the dole. These were really hard times. Later on, I went to college to study for a couple of years. And then I had a few temporary dead-end jobs, and eventually ended up on a temporary job at Cammell Laird shipyard. Many in my family had worked at Laird’s in the past, but the yard was on its knees and it employed a fraction of the men compared with the old days. So I left the North West and headed South, ended up in Suffolk, busking the towns on market days. Been married, divorced. Started writing songs in 2009…”

Paper Ships is Kete’s first album for 9 years, since his debut Road from 2010. The new album features members of The Cowboy Junkies, plus Josh Finlayson of The Skydiggers on bass, plus Tom Juhas on guitar…
