Searows is the music project of Alec Duckart (he/him), a Pacific Northwest singer-songwriter and guitarist. Duckart’s, hushed and compelling debut album, Guard Dog, was released independently, as was his subsequent non-album single “House Song.”

Influenced by the likes of Sufjan Stevens and Bon Iver, Searows similarly hits a raw nerve. Duckart has produced all his own music to date, primarily because he knows just how he wants it to sound, but also because “I don’t really know how to communicate it to anyone else yet.”

In the year since his debut album came out Searows has supported Ethel Cain, Matt Maltese, Gracie Abroms and Leith Ross. His debut headline shows in late 2023 and early 2024 in the USA and London were fast sell-outs.

Searows' new EP "End Of The World" was released to acclaimin November 2023, on Matt Maltese’s new label Last Recordings On Earth.
