Rowena is an inspirational instrument music teacher specialising in classical guitar (her first study), but also rhythm guitar, folk guitar and bass guitar. In addition she teaches piano, keyboard and recorders. She obtained an honours degree in music from Christ Church College, Canterbury in 1983 and has been teaching music privately and occasionally in schools since then. She has played in various worship groups and bands over the years and more recently used her experience as an orchestral percussionist to take on the role of drummer in a rock band! Currently Rowena is Musical Director for the Polden Wheel Diocese Worship Group ‘Polden Praise’.
Row and Nigel met up in 1979 at a small Christian Fellowship in Saltdean near Brighton and were married in 1982. Nigel introduced Row to the wonders of Progressive Rock and Row introduced Nigel to horse riding!
Nigel is a keyboard player who started playing the piano when he was eight years old. He has played in many different bands over the years.
We have released two albums and played on a number of others over the years.

I Heard The Voice Of Jesus SayFrom our latest EP 'Immortal'
ImmortalThis is the title track from our new EP 'Immortal' from the old hymn 'Immortal, invisible'. Rowena sang at an old peoples home where a large number of the residents suffered from dementia. They all enjoyed singing, in particular the old hymns and on this occasion they sang the hymn ‘Immortal, Invisible, God only wise’. Row was struck by the enormity of the words and by the way the tune rather rattled through them! Later on she sat at the piano and put together the arrangement we have here, giving time to the wonderful words of this old hymn. We hope you take time to listen and reflect and ‘Be Still’.
Take My Hand
Take My HandThis is a track from our first album 'Emmaus Road'
IsraelIsrael was written by Rowena on a visit to Israel. We were looking back at Jerusalem at the time and it was suggested we take time to pray. We released this song a few years ago but this is a new version mixed and mastered for us by Caroline Bonnett.
