ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Kris Rowley is a singer-songwriter hailing from Derbyshire, England. He has been writing songs for only a handful of years, though before this his passion was instrumental pieces, mainly piano, guitar and chamber works.

He found his way to releasing an album of original tunes by way of a popular online video sharing network, where he secured himself an appreciative and supportive audience. If it hadn't been for this push, these tunes would be gathering dust somewhere on his hard drive, for he is a most understated soul.

Through his exposure online, Kris received a number of enquiries from television production companies interested in using his tunes as their sonic backdrop.

"Unequal Measures" is a self-composed, home-recorded, bedroom engineered release; more an insight into the 'process' than anything else - an intimate affair, if you will.

And so, this writer finds himself somewhat lost in an uncomfortable discourse of self-promotion. How absurd! Time to pass onto someone else...

[Jon Shelton]: "A Kris Rowley song feels as though it always was. As though it were plucked from the ether in its native form. Such is the balance of every line, the pointillistic indentations of each fingered note. A mosaic piecing together, each part of the whole perfectly formed and aligned. To discover the many jewels he has to offer makes one pause. That one mind holds so much treasure is a joy to behold. Drawing from this well satisfies a thirst, but engages an appetite. The many puzzle pieces form an image of a man unable to state his muse, one which demands an open vein from which to pen his words. There is nothing casual in listening to his music. Though his words are held aloft by the deftest of melodic genius, they nonetheless demand an unswerving ear. It would be easy to call his music mellow, if not for the torrents that drive it. The juxtaposition between content and container are one of his key endearments. No one can make you feel such melancholy even while tapping along to his music ... His introspection seems always on the edge of hope, more expecting than espousing. There are silver linings emerging from every dark cloud and clever irony at every bend ... Kris Rowley writes songs the way others might confide to a loved one. He draws you near enough to see, yet far enough to wonder. Once you've entered his winding paths you will find yourself lingering, wanting more."

If I were a producer
Ahhh ! If I were a producer, I'd sign that guy right away ! I got this album and to me, it's brilliant ! I just wish I could fine musicians like that in France to play with. Really nice job in composition... the recording would need a better Mastering though but the sound is good... it more the level which is a little too low... Anyway, you can go for it, You won't regret it !

brilliant artistry
i came across kris through a friend's "favourite" on youtube. as i listened to his songs, i fell totally in love with what i was hearing. i couldn't wait to buy his cd.

kris' songs remind me of the perfect painting---just enough of everything in the right place that although clearly subjective to the artist himself, it is so intimate that it finds itself subjective to everyone who experiences it as well. "unequal measures" is a brilliant piece of artistry. i look forward to what kris has for us in the future. (should he be signed, which i am sure he will, i hope they allow him to keep the artistic integrity that he put forth with his own release.)



I came across this music on youtube, and I am really glad I did. These are all great songs.

Subtle yet strong
Some mellow albums I can only listen to when in a certain state of mind, but I enjoy listening to "Unequal Measures" no matter what mood I'm in. Thoughtful lyrics, beautiful arrangements... it's good stuff all around. My favorite track remains "The Ballad of the Existentialist" but I'm fond of them all. Kris Rowley is definitely an artist to watch.
