Fresh Sounds: Rosie Lowe & Duval Timothy – Son

British singer and songwriter Rosie Lowe joined forces with a multi-media artist and pianist Duval Timothy on a new single Son, from the duo's forthcoming debut album Son.

SON was recorded in London and Freetown between 2019-21. Inspired by the pair’s shared love of choral music, it began as an experiment to explore playing with the voice in more creative ways, using layered vocals as an instrument following piano harmony, arrangement and sampling.

The project started in London with the title track and became a story about a world in which we hide our true ‘colors’ in order to fit in. A mother tells her son that he needs to fit in to survive before realizing that she is following the same tropes passed on to her as a child. Following this realization, she encourages her son to protect his dreams and not to listen to anybody telling him he can’t be whatever he chooses.

Rosie joined Duval for a week in Freetown in February 2020 where they wrote the rest of the project, bringing friends Daniel Koroma, Kandeh Bangura, Valentine Coker, Chino Greene and Tom Herbert in for musical contributions.

We were interested in bringing our surroundings into the recordings; leaving doors open, recording in different spaces and locations, inviting the listener to experience the life that was going on around us whilst capturing the process, the artists said about the record.
