Kete Bowers is a singer/songwriter from Liverpool UK.

Biography

Kete Bowers is a singer / songwriter born in Liverpool. His music crosses many genres from Country, Folk, Rock, Americana and Blues.

Kete started writing his own songs in 2008. Recorded his debut album “Road” in 2010, and in April 2013 he released two songs, White River Road and Ghosts.

“ A top – notch songwriter, up there with such other rootsy country tunesmiths as Guy Clark, Rodney Crowell and John Prine. One of the finest debuts I've heard in many a moon.”

Alan Cackett: Maverick Country Magazine. 2011.

“A lot of international country artists are more authentic than the ones here at home. Kete Bowers is one of those artists.”

Pure Country Magazine. USA. 2011.

“Powerful and compelling”.

Steve Caseman. R2 Rock and Reel Magazine. 2011.

“ This is rootsy country music rather than over polished Nashville, it's evocative and tells a story the way country songs used to. Except those stories have moved with the time. The traditions and country are being well looked after and Liverpool born Kete Bowers knows the heart”.

Fatea Magazine May 2013.

“That timeless feel in the music and lyrics is just right to allow the song to fit on any modern – day radio format.

Review of White River Road. 2013.
By Matheson Kamin
Rating: 5 stars (out of 5)

“White River Road” captures the sound of heartache and loss and does so in a way that is rather beautiful and that's a feat, to be sure”.

Lyrics

ISOBEL

Written By: KETE BOWERS

I thought I heard an angel crying
I looked and saw that it was you
I held your hand as the sun left the sky
We held our breathe and closed our eyes

Isobel I still sing the songs you taught me
I roll my mind to way back then
Jim Reeves on the record player
Singing he will have to go

And I don't want the flowers to see you cry
If they do they'll surely die
I pray the wind will gently blow
And see my angel safely home

Baby if I tell you something
That you don't believe or you just don't see
You can throw your arms around the sun
You can blow the stars out one by one
Girl you're the morning when it comes

And I don't want the flowers to see you cry
If they do they'll surely die
I pray the wind will gently blow
And see my angel safely home

I thought I heard an angel crying
I looked and saw that it was you
I held your hand as the sun left the sky
We held our breathe and closed our eyes

We held our breathe and closed our eyes
We held our breathe and closed our eyes

SHINE

Written By: KETE BOWERS

I wrote you a letter, I wrote you kind
It's been ten years now baby
Still waitin' on the reply
I watch the little boats, out there on the sea
I watch them until they disappear

They just wanted a love; that stays afloat
They wanted memories that would shine
They wanted somethin' they could hold
They wanted beautiful times
They wanted everything to be alright

Here the silence it's so loud, I can't picture you no more
I'm still findin' confetti in my clothes
Under the stars we moved together
Under the stars we planned our dreams
On God's green Earth we held each other close

They just wanted a love; that stays afloat
They wanted memories that would shine
They wanted somethin' they could hold
They wanted beautiful times
They wanted everything to be alright

Here comes that ghost, of you again
This is the calm baby before the storm
Well it looks like the sun has given up and run
Baby some wounds are too deep to heal

They just wanted a love; that stays afloat
They wanted memories that would shine
They wanted somethin they could hold
They wanted beautiful times
They wanted everything to be alright

GOLD

Written By: KETE BOWERS

We've drag our troubles through this world
Cried more baby than we've smiled
Searchin' for love and peace of mind
and holding on to those golden times

I held on to a dream
Held on till I could not breathe
I held on till I could not feel
I held on with everything

I loved you so

You told me there's no pot of gold
Rainbows they just fall and hit the ground
It's always winter in your heart
And summer's a forgotten memory

Got a little picture in a frame
A picture of you in brighter days
I'd give you something you could hold
Give you your dream that won't unfold

I loved you so

Driving along the sugar lines
Four thousand miles away from you
Take all the things in this world dear
I held you close; I held you true

I loved you so
I loved you so
I loved you so

ROAD

Written By: KETE BOWERS

Looking out the window at a big moon
It lights a road out to sea
Waters calm it's peaceful here
Right now it's the place I want to be

Sometimes we move we move too fast
We miss the beauty in the day
We build our own mountains girl
We build them taller everyday

I'm tired Joey boy on the radio
I'm tired Joey boy for you and me
Sweet songs on the radio
Sweet songs honey can't you hear

Still got that twinkle in you eyes
Had it there girl since you were a child
I loved you then I love you now
Five decades feel like no time

Don't look back now
Honey don't turn your eyes to home
Don't put your mind to things you can't change
Hey honey we're getting old

I'm tired Joey boy on the radio
I'm tired Joey boy for you and me
Sweet songs on the radio
Sweet songs honey can't you hear

Looking out the window at a big moon
It lights a road out to sea
Waters calm it's peaceful here
Right now it's the place I want to be

I'm tired Joey boy on the radio
I'm tired Joey boy for you and me
Sweet songs on the radio
Sweet songs honey can't you hear

Can't you hear
Can't you hear
Can't you hear
Can't you hear

STAY

Written By: KETE BOWERS

I still got the shoes that walked the street of Le Lavre
I still got a picture of you and me in some bar
We are all looking for something hope in times like these
My summer has gone and it's bitter cold here

I want you to stay
Stay for a while
I would love you forever
I'd love you for all time

Well honey you can keep your heavenly things
Guess you'll never learn you get back just what you put in

I want you to stay
Stay for a while
I would love you forever
Love you for all time

Pretty little snowflakes fell
They fell on you and me
We chased that snow down and across the fields
Through the arms of English trees

I want you to stay
I want you to stay
I want you to stay
I want you to stay

I I want you to stay
I want you to stay
I want you to stay
I want you to stay

God bless your heart God bless your soul
God keep you close God keep you from harm

I still got the shoes that walked the streets of Le Havre
I still got a picture of you and me in some bar

I I want you to stay
I want you to stay
I want you to stay
I want you to stay
