Jowe E

A multi-instrumentalist and passionate musician, Jowe E recently released her first EP Album entitled Freein' My Mind. She has been known in the scene as the petite songstress with an unexpected soulful powerful voice coupled with her signature guitar techniques. Compared with the likes of Joni Mitchell, Carole King, Bic Runga to name a few, Jowe E shares tales of her travels, life, love and roadtrips through her songs. She has collaborated with musicians across New Zealand as well as Australia, both as a songwriter and as a backup vocalist or dropping beats on the cajon. Jowe E has shared her songs across Canada as part of her world trip, which led her to write the song Freein' My Mind back in 2013.
