TRAIL MIX BLOG: An Interview With Abigail Dowd
MAY 9, 2019 | BLUE RIDGE OUTDOOR MAGAZINE
Abigail Dowd, on Not What I Seem, her new record, delved into her grandfather’s war experience, and the trickle down effect it had on familial relationships, on “Chosin,” a song inspired by the battle at Chosin Reservoir during the Korean War.
Trail Mix is happy to feature that song this month, and I was lucky enough to catch up with Abigail to chat up the new record and the power of that song as she reflected on her grandfather.

Go Triad | by Eddie Huffman
After Abigail Dowd performed her set at the Cary Theater on Saturday night, Emily Scott Robinson invited Dowd back to the stage to harmonize on a few of Robinson’s songs. “This has been a big year for both of us,” Robinson told Dowd. “New albums out, we both have agents now — we’re makin’ it!”
Dowd’s new album, “Not What I Seem,” comes out on Friday, technically. She will mark the occasion Saturday night with a performance in The Crown at the Carolina Theatre. Sam Frazier and the Side Effects will open the show, and Frazier will join Dowd for a couple of songs.
Abigail Dowd ‘sheds’ stories of
Norman in new album
Richmond County Herald | by Gavin Stone
NORMAN — There’s more to Norman than can be seen in the blink it takes to pass through the town.
For Abigail Dowd, who spent punctuated periods there visiting family in her early years, the town has taken on a mythic quality as it both haunts and inspires her music. On her second album, Not What I Seem, to be released on April 5, Dowd is “shedding” the stories and leftover emotions from her past, many of which originated in Norman.

THe Boot PREMiere: “Goodbye Hometown”
Visit THE BOOT to listen to “the wistful, mellow tune with poignant lyrics that get right at the heart of what it means to pine for home.”
Written shortly after Dowd moved to Maine from the South, "Goodbye Hometown" finds the artist singing sings sweetly of the things she misses from her home, which is now more than a thousand miles away: "Goodbye, peaches / Goodbye, sweet magnolia blossoms in the summertime," Dowd sings. "Goodbye to the whippoorwill, singing sweetly in the night among the longleaf pines / Goodbye hometown, everyone I've ever known"
