Rowan Flack is a south London-based artist known for her introspective contemporary Jazz songs. As a Jazz graduate of Trinity Laban and a former student of The Brit School, her music weaves between the genres of Jazz, Pop and Folk. Inspired by a broad range of singers and instrumentalists, she listens to Astrud Gilberto, Keith Jarrett, Jan Garbarek, Norah Jones, and Gretchen Parlato. Her current influences include contemporaries such as Kokoroko, Eloise and Cleo Sol.
She has recently released the new single “Tipsy on the Tongue” which draws on a Soul/Pop atmosphere.
Speaking of the song’s narrative, Flack shares:
The music is inspired mainly by relationships. As I have gotten to this stage of my life, I am constantly discovering different flaws and blessings in myself and my personality. I tend to lean towards writing about communication and personal experience.
‘Tipsy On The Tongue’ focuses on the flaws of my personality during an argument and how two people’s love languages don’t always align.
The artist speaks about the importance of communication within relationships and being frank about your emotions in the new track and finds an increasing confidence in doing so through her work. Flack’s music has taken her to all corners of the globe, having spent time in both Norway and China. Her upcoming debut EP Forest Fires is due for release this year.
