About Beth Rowley
Born in Peru the youngest daughter of a Baptist minister, Beth Rowley was inspired by her dad’s love of early blues and gospel music. Mahalia Jackson, Woody Guthrie, and Lead Belly were the soundtrack to her youth.
Bristol based for much of her life, Beth's love of music expanded to include artists as diverse as Mary J. Blige, Emmylou Harris and Ella Fitzgerald.
These strong female vocalists inspired her to create her own unique sound.
2008 saw the release of her debut album, Little Dreamer, which went straight into the top 10 and secured her a Brit award nomination.
She went on to receive rave reviews for writing and performing the title track I’ve Got You Wrapped Around My Little Finger, in the Oscar winning Brit-flick An Education, starring Carey Mulligan and directed by Lone Scherfig. She also worked with such musical luminaries as Burt Bacharach and David Lynch's right hand man, Angelo Badalamenti.
Having moved to London a little over two years ago, Beth began collaborating with a host of talented writers and musicians, both established and up-and-coming. Mixing old influences with new she has created a body of work to be released as 3 Eps. The first in this series, Wretched Body, is out this summer.
