Rowan Stuart releases video for new single “Castle Beach”

Durban based singer-songwriter-guitarist Rowan Stuart has created an inimitable brand of Soul Folk music, with pop and world influences. Recalling Sting’s imaginative storytelling, Death Cab for Cutie’s sense of space and beauty, and John Mayer’s tight grooves, Rowan uses his notable prowess on the guitar as the foundation for his creativity.

He’s just released a self-directed video for his new single “Castle Beach”

The song tells the story of two lovers who escape from reality into an idyllic painting of a beach. Everything seems perfect until the lady begins to drift away, haunted by the memory of real life, while the man is left to wander the painted shores alone.
