Rich Lown is a singer/songwriter from the south coast of England; where music found him four years ago. Songs have found him in a similar way ever since. Much of Rich's music is a moment of catharsis caught in song. Where it comes from, he doesn't know.
Starting From Now the long awaited album from Rich Lown is finally here. Two years have passed since the Rest of Our Lives but as the title and track suggests Starting From Now is a landmark for Rich; embracing change and the unknown. After finding his voice in the last EP Rich has found the confidence to explore and diversify whilst still striving for an honest, pure sound.
Partly responsible for the new dynamic of Starting From Now are some new acquaintances. It features a duet with pianist and singer Sam Wills, licks form ex Hurricane Party guitarist Robin Hirschfield and is produced and mixed by Frankie Schulmeyer. These collaborations have added a whole new depth to Rich’s music.
Written and recorded over a year, the album speaks of the personal turbulence Rich has faced and in his incidental way, the songs offer reassurance to listeners struggling with the same questions about life; from the vulnerable uncertainty of Somehow to the bittersweet honesty of Talk to Yourself and the summery optimism of Drive. Rich hopes each song finds the right person at the right time.
Rich is as optimistic about the future as the title track might suggest, recently beating over 10,000 hopefuls to the grand final of 'Open Mic UK' the countries biggest unsigned solo artist talent search, he can now officially say he's one of the UKs brightest stars for the future. Developing and defining his sound and reaching as many people as possible are his current aims. His recent recordings have given Rich clarity and focus. In his words 'Watch this space!'
