BETH ROWLEY + JP RUGGIERI
They say it’s good to take your time with things that are important to you, and certainly no one can accuse Beth Rowley of rushing the process of recording her much anticipated second album. Following a storming introduction in 2008, with her UK top 10 album Little Dreamer selling over 100,000 albums and receiving a Brit Award nomination for Best Female Solo Artist, Beth has spent the last 6 years experimenting and perfecting her sound and is finally back with a new album in the making titled GOTA FRIA, due for release September 2017.
Beth still acknowledges early influences from gospel spirituals, soul and blues inherited from her parents, who brought her up on Led Belly and Mahalia Jackson. Her new sound has grown edgier, deeper and louder demonstrated recently during her sold out headline tour of the UK, including The Jazz Cafe, London and the Royal Albert Hall, in support of Jools Holland. Beth’s vocals are simply stunning and as she graces the stage with her 4 piece band, it is clear to see that the years preparing have grown in her a confidence that only experience and commitment to your art can give.
Beth has appeared on stage with some giants of the music world including recent tour support slots for Jools Holland and his R&B Orchestra during his UK tour, Burt Bacharach with the BBC Electric Proms alongside Adele, Jamie Callum, David Arnold, and as Angelo Badalamenti‘s personal guest with Susie Sioux (David Lynch‘s right hand man) at Ghent Film Festival.
