Three years after debut album Worlds Apart was released with sales to more than 27 countries worldwide, talented local singer-songwriter Rich Lown has released second studio album Brand New Start this week.
Rich’s music has caused a stir with high profile support slots, a publishing contract with an LA company and regular national radio plays.
His new album is much anticipated and could be the catalyst to see him move on to the next level. Written and recorded over the last 12 months at Blue Dot Studios in Brighton, Brand New Start is a 11 track album written about key moments in Rich’s life, inspired from personal experiences and those of others around him.
Rich commented: “I’m incredibly proud to be able to release another album. When I recorded my first CD, I never thought I would even have the funds available to record a second but after such support from an ever-growing loyal fan base and selling hundreds of copies during my tour with Joan Armatrading, I was able to keep growing as an artist and get back in the studio. As an independent artist, I fully rely on sales and live performances to keep recording and I could never keep going without people buying my music. I feel like I have matured tenfold since my first record and having had the luxury of a bigger budget and taking my time over this one, it’s bigger and better than ever and It’s a proud moment to be able to release it to the public.
“The album is now available on hard copy through my Facebook or email address firstname.lastname@example.org and will also be available from the White Rock Theatre box office with 10% of music sales being donated to Great Ormond Street Hospital. Alternatively, You can also pre order the album on iTunes, Spotify and Amazon for September 1 release.”
