Biography

The scene was a Grammy after-party in LA. Jay-Z, recalling seeing Gigi Rowe perform a few months earlier, looked a young Gigi squarely in the eye and said, "You are fantastically talented." If there’s anything to inspire a budding artist to greater heights, it would be those words, uttered from a modern-day icon. One would be amazed at the powerhouse voice and indomitable spirit that is the essence of Gigi Rowe both on stage and off. Gigi has that rare quality very few artists’ possess: She makes every person in the audience feel as if she is singing only to them. Her performance, whether on stage or in the studio, has a magnetism that people naturally gravitate to, which is why in 2010 Gigi was chosen by the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame and Songmasters to be the recipient of the first ever (Buddy) Holly Prize. The prestigious award is presented to one young singer-songwriter and performer per year who exhibits "true, great, and original" qualities. In 2012, Gigi completed two national tours; She opened for Bob Schneider, and participated in the first-ever Sunset Sessions tour with Duncan Sheik, Alpha Rev and Courrier. In addition, she performed on the BMI stage at Lollapalooza in August 2012, and is currently in the studio in LA with hit songwriter/producer PJ Bianco. Her first single, “Wishing Well”, had a twelve week Triple A Radio chart run in 2011, and her current single "Running from the Grave" is spinning on Triple A Radio, and has received substantial airplay in Nashville. Gigi just completed a radio tour, including performances at the KFOG Playspace in San Francisco, and KINK’s Bing Lounge in Portland. She was interviewed for a feature in Vanity Fair related to her song "To Will and Kate, Meet Me at Exit 109", detailing her time spent with Prince William and Kate Middleton as students at the University of St. Andrews, and she was interviewed for two royal biographies to be released summer/fall 2013. She has had a song placement/performance on E! True Hollywood and songs licensed to the USA and Style Networks. Gigi is currently writing/recording a song with Mark Batson (Eminem, Dave Matthews Band) and is collaborating on a song with leading LA DJ’s Sex Panther. She has worked with powerhouse producers/musicians Marshall Altman, Bleu, Thom Panunzio, Roy Bittan of the E Street Band, Kenny Aronoff, Paul Pesco, Rob Whited and Bobby Lee Parker. GIgi performed at the All About Music (music supervisor) event in Nashville this past June, and she is gearing up for her forthcoming EP “Introducing Gigi Rowe” release that will include a multi-formatted radio campaign and tour.
