Rich Lown is a singer/songwriter from the south coast of England. Fusing folk and rock with his unique voice Rich Lown is bringing freshness and honesty to music. Much of his music is a moment of catharsis caught in song through an intuitive process of song writing. It’s natural, catchy and comes from within, proving that songs can be popular and still be soulful.
Rich has received an increasing number of music accolades with various festivals under his belt, support slots with legendary songwriter ‘Chris Difford’ and finishing in the top 20 in the country for the UKs biggest unsigned solo artist talent search 'Open Mic UK‘.

Once described as ‘an English John Mayer’ Rich has recently released his debut album ‘Worlds Apart’. With his last EP ‘Time For Us All’ selling to over 20 countries around the world in just 12 months, the much anticipated debut album ‘Worlds Apart’ promises to please fans of Rich’s music around the globe with his fresh Folk/Rock sounds. Recorded at River Studios in Southampton it features Rich’s counterpart lead guitarist Robin Hirschfeld and a collaboration with London’s up and coming singer/songwriter Alice Watts. This solid 12 track album shows off Rich’s versatility beginning with a catchy ‘Route 66’ track in ‘Black Cloud’ and ending in an atmospheric, heart felt song in ‘I’ll Be Listening’.

In October 2012 Rich was chosen out of thousands to support Joan Armatrading, by the legend herself and also saw his beautiful track ‘My Own Legend’ appear on a compilation album with all other support artists from the tour released on Hypertension, Joan’s record label.
