More Info:

On Here Come The Dowsers, his fifteenth release, and first with Think Like A Key Music, art-rock auteur Ward White wields his elastic range to weave compelling character vignettes in a broadly cinematic Hollywood song-cycle, hopscotching through Tinseltown history, illuminating the grime beneath the glamour. Garnering comparisons to the likes of Bowie, Roxy Music, Neil Hannon, and Elvis Costello, White's "Soaring, lyrical pop" (The New Yorker) is in full bloom on Here Come The Dowsers, continuing to evoke "Scott Walker's scope with Paul McCartney's playfulness, all while creating something singular and compelling" (MAGNET). A-list collaborators include Grammyr-winner and Golden Glober-nominee, John Spiker (Tenacious D, Beck, Beth Orton), Grammyr-winner, Tyler Chester (Madison Cunningham, Andrew Bird, Jackson Browne), and Mark Stepro (The Wallflowers, Butch Walker, Ben Kweller). "... Scott Walker's scope with Paul McCartney's playfulness, all while creating something singular and compelling." - MAGNET
