The debut album from S. Carey, All We Grow, is the result of a young lifetime spent immersed in music. As a band member of Bon Iver from the very beginning, Sean Carey witnessed a flip of his formal training to step firmly into a worldwidetouring rock band. His performance degree in classical percussion from the University of WisconsinEau Claire and his love for jazz drumming prepared him for a smooth transition into a central role in the inspiring force of the Bon Iver live show.
All We Grow is a convergence of Careys Waltz For Debbieera Bill Evans inflected jazz tendencies, and traditional rock band experience, taking leads from Mark Hollis Talk Talk. It also retests the waters of modern classical composition, investigating the moodiness generated by percussive repetition in a manner familiar to fans of Steve Reich. In his downtime on tour with Bon Iver, Sean would spend time pining for his soulmates arms, and in that context, dreaming and composing. During infrequent tour breaks at home he would patiently record these pieces, adding layers each time. Two years later, the parts converged to make an album.
