Based on the 2003 movie starring Will Ferrell, Elf the Musical is a story about a human who is raised in the North Pole to be an elf, despite his obvious physical limitations. The musical follows Buddy as he tries to fit in as an elf, and later as a human when he sets out to find his real father in New York City. A new take on a Christmas classic, Elf the Musical incorporates music and comedy into the family-friendly story.
Singer/songwriter Sean Rowe consistently grabs comparisons to the likes of Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen and Bruce Spingsteen--all rather hefty names to live up to. The New York based musician does not waver at these name drops, however, and instead is able to convey these greats, while still remaining an individual with his own unique brand of music. Rowe's voice is the most arresting aspect of his music, and imparts a sense of wisdom and experience in a deep baritone, which pairs beautifully with his sparse Americana that can often consist solely of an acoustic guitar. Rowe began performing seriously in 2005 and has since signed to the respected Anti- record label.
