Beth Rowley is “a songwriter of striking power, her jazz-informed approach resonates with a raw sense of emotional feeling” (Clash). With a career spanning two decades, she’s performed with Angelo Badalamenti of Twin Peaks renown, at the BBC Electric Proms with Burt Bacharach and has regularly toured as a guest vocalist with Jools Holland and his Rhythm and Blues Orchestra.

Rowley’s raw, emotive songwriting encapsulates lilting blues and dusky Americana alongside gospel influences and resonant, soulful jazz inflections. Her long-awaited second album ‘Gota Fría’ delivers “her unequivocally great voice and a healthy dose of the blues” (Arts Desk).
