ROWAN are a highly anticipated indie-folk band made up of multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Dylan Howe, with Fionn Hennessy-Hayes on drums and Kevin Herron on Guitar. Together they create melodramatic indie-folk, soaked in sophisticated vocal harmonies.
They are currently commanding a great deal of attention for their symphonic indie-anthems. The band have supported internationally renowned artists such as Badly Drawn Boy, Duke Special, Brian Deady, Hamsandwich and many more.
The band has earned international recognition as they were nominated for an IMA award, judged by Robert Smith, Tom Waits, Roberta Flack and many others, with their song ‘Big Wave’. The band were also rewarded the ‘Colin Vearncombe’ Songwriting award.
The individual members of the band have worked with world renowned artists such as Ariel Posen, The Stunning, Little Hours, The Frank and Walters, Toucan and many others, performing to crowds of thousands in some instances.
Rowan's harmoniously rich compositions are laden with melodies that bring the listener to a familiar place with a tasteful twist of their own nature. Their acute and lucid sound is a melange of indie & folk, a melodic style reminiscent of Arcade Fire, Bombay Bicycle Club and Keane.
Following the success of their 2 last singles 'Big Wave' and 'Moonlight', and after a mini tour in Ireland, UK, Toronto and New York up until February, the band are set to release their second EP 'No One Is Safe Here' in November.
