Beth Rowley is known for her voice and love of Blues and Gospel. After the huge success of her UK top 10 album ‘Little Dreamer’ in 2008, for which she was nominated a Brit Award, she’s back after working on her much anticipated second album.
Performing a handful of sell-out shows this summer, Beth says ‘Its taking time to finish my new album, n thats ok, it’ll take as long as it takes. I’ve had the opportunity to explore what I want to do next and its on its way. I’ve been revisiting old blues and gospel and looking at ways to include some of my musical main influences – like Captain Beefheart, Emmylou Harris, Ron Sexsmith and Mahalia Jackson. Expect more electric guitar and harmonica!”
The period since ‘Little Dreamer’ has also seen Beth’s film debut with the release of Oscar nominated Brit flick ‘An Education’, starring Carey Mulligan and directed by Danish director Lone Scherfig. Beth’s cameo role as the nightclub singer received rave reviews as did her theme song ‘You Got Me Wrapped Around Your Little Finger’ written with collaborator Ben Castle.
Beth has appeared on stage with some giants of the music world including Burt Bacharach at the Electric Proms, David Arnold (James Bond), and as Angelo Badalamenti’s personal guest (David Lynch’s right hand man) at Ghent film Festival. Beth also performed at Willie Nelsons 4th July Back Yard Festival in Austin alongside Ray Wylie Hubbard. In her spare time Beth tours in the UK and Europe as guest vocalist with Jools Holland and his R&B Band.
