Abigail Dowd Album Release


In The Crown with Sam Frazier & the Side Effects

North Carolina folk singer-songwriter Abigail Dowd is a child of the South who ventured to
Florence, Italy, then Maine, in search of how she fit into the world — eventually ending up right
where she started with an understanding that, sometimes, all any of us needs or wants is to feel
heard and seen. Written with a new realization of the separation between herself and her
experiences, Dowd’s new album Not What I Seem spans songs that tell her story of finding
forgiveness, healing, and even gratitude, for all that has shaped her. She will be celebrating the
release of Not What I Seem (available April 5) in The Crown.

Dowd is joined by Jason Duff, her now-husband and the man responsible for luring her to back
to North Carolina from Maine after their chance meeting on an airplane. A native of Greensboro,
Duff plays bass guitar and foot percussion that transforms this duo into much more than meets
the eye.
