There is a living-room intimacy to Richard Gowen’s music. His songs capture that time of night when, gathered with friends, we begin to tell the truth. His songs aren’t loud or showy or meant to impress the crowds. They are quiet and honest. Call it homespun, but Richard Gowen’s songs reflect the conflict and confusions of the inner life, the twilight most of us live in, where love is flecked with doubt, determination glances at surrender, and profound joy acknowledges pain. Not that his music doesn’t scream from time to time.
Richard’s voice captures the emotional range of his songs. His voice is soft and at times angry, quivering and at times eager.
