All We Grow was and is a convergence of S. Carey's young lifetime spent immersedin music: his Waltz For Debby-era Bill Evans inflected jazz tendencies; hisperformance degree in classical percussion from the University of Wisconsin, EauClaire; his cental role in the galeforce power of the Bon iver live show; his hints ofMark Hollis' Talk Talk. In his downtime on tour with Bon Iver, Sean would spendtime pining for his life at home, dreaming and composing in that headspace.All We Grow also retests the waters of modern classical composition, investigatingthe moodiness generated by percussive repetition in a manner familiar to fansof Steve Reich. For as spacious as they are, Carey's compositions are incrediblydynamic, with moments of bombast held right next to moments of subtle depthand texture. How apropos, then, that this anniversary edition of All We Grow adds acover of Tom Waits' "Take it With Me", a timeless lullaby from another artist whosevoice strikes us in bracing, unexpected ways.Ten years ago, S. Carey and All We Grow crept into our world like a seedling -delicate and unassuming, but putting down roots that would deepen and growwhether we saw them or not. Ten years later, S. Carey and All We Grow endureas a part of our soil, an earthen, inextricable part of planet Jagjaguwar. At a timewhen serenity feels particularly scarce, All We Grow stands as a classic album -born without expectation and met with adoration - a cathartic result of Carey'sextraordinary and vibrant life experiences that resonates loss, dreams and heart in amanner so instantly relatable, you feel as though you can touch it.
