South African singer-songwriter Rowan Stuart will support the release of his fifth studio album, ‘Faraway (Deluxe)’ with a special East London album launch on Wednesday the 2nd of May. With the release of brand new single ‘Survivors’, which is already receiving rave reviews and radio play across Southern Africa, Rowan continues to bring his own signature of Alternative Pop and Folk music to a wider audience. The album launch will take place at The Captain’s Table in Abbotsford.
Rowan has previously collaborated with artists such as Tresor, Just Jinjer and Nibs van der Spuy, and has opened for many of South Africa’s top pop music acts.
His sound was motivated by a search for something deeper and more soulful within the landscape of modern pop music. Inspired by the rich storytelling of Sting, the intricate tapestry of African and World rhythms, and even the soundtracks to his favourite classic video games and movies, the Durban-based artist learned that music was his best tool in sharing the inner worlds of his imagination with other people. With his pure voice and virtuosic guitar playing as the vessels, Rowan sails through soundscapes both organic and electronic.
