Sean Carey first established himself in the music scene as the drummer and backup vocalist for indie folk project Bon Iver. After the successful reception and subsequent tours of that group's 2008 album, For Emma, Forever Ago, Carey was afforded the opportunity to branch off on his own. His debut solo album, All We Grow, retains some of the chilly, haunting nature and sparse production of Bon Iver - in fact, his high falsetto even sounds a lot like front man Justin Vernon's. But Carey's songs also reveal a deep love for jazz, rich harmonies and 70s singer/songwriter pop, making his individual efforts diverse and strong enough to stand on their own.
