Gota Fria – Tracing the Line Tour
After the release of her critically acclaimed second album, Gota Fria, British singer Beth Rowley is embarking on an intimate duo tour of the UK – showcasing songs from her new record, as they were originally composed
The saying “Whatever doesn’t kill you makes you stronger,” is tailor-made for Beth Rowley.
Ten years ago the singer-songwriter’s debut ‘Little Dreamer’ went top 10, garnered a Brit nomination and sales in excess of 100,000. A huge achievement by anyone’s standards but a tainted one for Rowley – she felt compromised both musically and stylistically, modeled in the labels image as a mainstream contender.
Rowley has collaborated with other artists and bands, including Crowded House on their Time on Earth album providing backing vocals for the song “Transit Lounge”. Rowley recorded a song called “Careless Talk” for the soundtrack to the new film featuring Keira Knightley called The Edge of Love.
In 2009, Rowley was nominated for a Brit Award in the category for Best British Female Solo Artist.
Rowley featured in the nightclub scene in the 2009 film An Education, directed by Lone Scherfig. Her track, “You Got Me Wrapped Around Your Little Finger”, is featured prominently in the official movie soundtrack. Most recently her performance of the song “I Walk Beside You” is used as the theme song for the 2017 BBC series Strike.
In 2018, the track ‘Forest Fire’ – co-written with Ron Sexsmith – puther back on the radar and picked up daytime play at 6music has put Beth Rowley back into the spotlight.
Her latest album “Gota Fria” achieved widespread critical acclaim.
A Spanish weather term ‘Gota Fría’ struck Rowley as the perfect album title. It describes “long periods of the clouds breaking off and remaining stationary for weeks and then sudden violent clashes of warm and cold currents. I thought it was a beautiful name, and an awesome album title, because the meaning is so bold and a perfect image of my own journey.”
A heady fusion of rock, blues and Americana ‘Gota Fría’ is a startling rebirth, with a confidence that belies that ten-year absence. Working with co-writers Ron Sexsmith, Marcus Bonfanti and Ben Castle, Rowley has delivered an album that smolders, in both explosive and intimate forms. ‘Howl at the Moon’ and ‘Only One Cloud’, evoke the swarthy drama of Led Zeppelin while ‘Brother’ and ‘Run to the Light’ are ember-glowing ballads. ‘Hide from Your Love’ and ‘Forest Fire’ splice country-folk roots with the vibe and energy of the Bristol scene that gave birth to her voice while ‘Get it Back’ is equal parts rock and soul and ‘Brave Face’ nods to the ‘70s west coast sound.
