‘Then We Met’ Single Launch
OUT MARCH 22
I am thrilled to announce that I am releasing my single ‘Then We Met’ prior to the launch of my debut album! The single will be out on March 22nd on iTunes, with national launch tour dates in April at Django Bar, Sydney (14 Apr), The Toff in Town, Melbourne (16 Apr), The Homestead, Hobart (17 Apr) and Wheatsheaf Hotel, Adelaide (22 Apr).
Joining me for the ‘Then We Met’ single tour will be my backing band comprised of Zac Barter (Canary) and Finn Bennet (Officer Parrot). As Rowena Wise and the Guys, we drive a compelling performance with arrangements of original songs on double bass, accordion, ukulele and three part harmonies.
The single was written shortly after I relocated to Melbourne from rural WA in 2012, thus it touches on themes of the excitement and melancholy associated with being a stranger in a new town. It’s about simplifying and celebrating the new, diving headfirst into the unknown without hesitation or over-analysis.
I can’t wait to share this tune with you guys! Be sure to catch one of our shows in the single tour, more details on the ‘Upcoming Gigs’ page. Thanks so much for all your support, and stay tuned!
Hey guys! If you were involved in the Pozible campaign last year, I want to say thank you again for your support. Heaps of momentum was gathered through the generosity of all you guys, and it’s something I wouldn’t be able to complete the project without.
As you already know, after the success of the Pozible campaign, I modified the original project to make an EP into a project for an entire album.
Since then, making this album has been an awesome experience. Everybody involved – friends, family, fans – have been generous in giving valuable time and energy to the project , over the course of the year. All the songs have been brought to life by incredible musicians who I greatly admire. It’s been running smooth and sweet.
Six months on from the Pozible campaign, we are now in the final stages of production. We are focussing on the mixing, mastering, artwork and planning of a release tour, all of which is really exciting.
My album is due for release in early 2016. The release date will be timed around the launch tour, details of which will be announced in due course.
Thank you so much for coming this journey with me. Not a long way to go now, we’re almost there! I can’t wait to share this with you.
It’s going to be super fun.
