oh there’s a song bird in my heartsinging the night out with the stars
feel her wings beating in the dark
and she will fly, fly me away"

What people say

“Rowan is simply one of the best singers I have ever worked with.“
John Jones – Singer / writer / musician (Oysterband)

“I’ve worked with Rowan on various projects and it’s always been a joy. Yes, she has a gorgeous voice – but importantly she also has a great attitude to getting stuck in, to learning, and to making sure she does what needs doing. A proper work ethic, a valuable ear for experimentation and improvisation, and an easygoing temperament. Singing with a smile on her face! “
Boff Whalley – Musician (Chumbawumba), play wright, activist

“Rowan Godel is one of those singers who manages to nail a song straight away with no apparent effort. She is not only possessed of an angelic voice, but also fine musicianship and an easy going personality… It has been my privilege to work with her on six CD albums and many live festival and tour appearances, always a reliable and easy going friend and colleague.”
Ray Cooper – Musician (aka Chopper – Oysterband)

About work with Billy Cowie:
Edge of Nowhere/Under Flat Sky is a ravishing double bill choreographed by Billy Cowie. The sheer beauty of Under Flat Sky is breathtaking: a visual projection designed by German artist Silke Mansholt and vocals by Rowan Godel are all part of an entrancing whole.”
Stephanie Green – The Skinny Sep 2015

About work with Billy Cowie:
Under Flat Sky, conceived and choreographed by Billy Cowie merges music, pictures, poetry, story and dance into an organic whole, measured and meditative. The singing of Rowan Godel creates an atmosphere of magical dreamlike suspension.
Susanna Battisti – Fogli e Parole d’Arte 27 July 2016
