Singer-songwriter GIGI ROWE has accomplished a lot in her career – securing song placements on TV and in video games, signing a major label record deal, authoring an illustrated children’s book, and creating a scripted kids audiobook podcast - but the release of her debut album is something she’s been preparing for quite some time. Finally, the wait is over as Laura is out today (9/30).

“Sometimes you have to go on a long journey just to find your way back home,” Gigi shares. “I titled my debut album Laura because it’s my real name and this is my story. I first started writing songs as a teenager because it was the only place I felt completely free to say whatever I wanted to. After many years, and a lot of highs and lows, I still feel the same way about writing songs. Especially these. I’m excited to welcome you into the world of Gigi Rowe by introducing you to Laura and taking you back to the places where it all began.”

 

From breathtaking ballads to pop-rock anthems, Laura, co-written and co-produced with PJ Bianco (Jonas Brothers, Bonnie McKee, A R I Z O N A, Kygo), reveals a voice that is all at once unique and familiar. In the past few months, Gigi teased the full-length through a series of singles: “You Me and the Stars,” “Borrowed Time,” “Running from the Grave,” “Lonely Together,” “Color Outside the Lines,” and most recently “When The Time Comes.”


And it’s clear the new music is capturing the attention of those who hear even just a little bit. Since being featured in Netflix’s Boo, Bitch starring Lana Condor (clip here) and Prime Video’s The One That Got Away during a magical sparkler scene (clip here), “You Me and the Stars” has been scanned on Shazam nearly 8,500 times. “Borrowed Time” was also prominently featured in the Prime Video series as the opening scene for the entire show, and another of Gigi’s songs is on track for placement in a major network TV series.

 

“I’ve worked with a lot of great artists who are on the world stage, and Gigi Rowe is among them with her singular voice and unique songwriting sensibilities,” Biancoshares. “There’s no doubt that Gigi Rowe is a star.”

 

The New Jersey native recently performed the new music live in both Los Angeles at Breaking Sound at The Peppermint Club (9/3) and New York City’s Rockwood Music Hall earlier this week (9/28); she’s looking ahead to adding more dates soon.

 

In a review of the album, That Mag’s Noelle Simeon noted Laura is “heartfelt, real, and connects directly to who Gigi is under the heart-shaped shades…Gigi surprised me in the best of ways with Laura. She sings with the hopefulness of youth but writes of her past with warmth and maturity. It is incredibly refreshing while also pleasantly familiar.”

 

Aside from her solo projects, Gigi recently began working with TikTok star Claybaby and their debut collab single release “So Iconic” was highlighted by Entertainment Tonight among their notable New Music Release selections. The pair are on track to debut more new music. 

 

As a multifaceted artist, Gigi’s found success with all her projects, whether she’s creating music, books or podcasts. She was called “fantastically talented” by Jay-Z and formerly signed to LA Reid’s Island Def Jam, has had multiple tracks featured in the Just Dance video game series, authored an illustrated children’s book, Gigi Rowe Wishes, and her most recent project was a kids podcast show, Posy Flynn Sings! which she created, produced, composed original music and voiced the title character in her show.
