Dandelion Charm - EP Launch

Dandelion Charm Launch their EP with a full band.

Riding The Flood is a new five-track EP from Newhaven-based duo Dandelion Charm. John and Clare Fowler combine folk, prog and rock influences into a luxurious blend of intricate harmonies, soaring melodies, superb musicianship and heartfelt lyrics. Imagine Fleetwood Mac meets Opeth and CSN meets Yes.

Very much a personal as well as a creative partnership, Dandelion Charm have been memorably described as ‘like Fleetwood Mac without the drama’. As one reviewer has noted, however, all the drama is to be found in the songs themselves.

Clare Flowler: “The themes we deal with in our songs are not frivolous ones. They are all about aspects of real life, things that we’ve seen or been part of. Fear and self-doubt, optimism and determination, family, relationships and addiction are some of the emotions and situations we explore on Riding The Flood.”

With a background working in a commercial studio, John brings over twenty years of song-writing and production experience to Dandelion Charm. Clare, meanwhile, is a long-time visual artist and performer and her love of storytelling manifests itself in her heartfelt lyrics and emotive delivery.

What people are saying about Dandelion Charm:

“Packed with beautiful harmonies and emotional, heartfelt lyrics. Like Fleetwod Mac, they play, sing and write music with classic, soaring pop melodies that will also appeal to the serious muso.” - ROSS SIMPSON (Director – First Act Workshops)
“Dandelion Charm are a gentle force to be reckoned with. Clare Fowler’s English Rose sensibilities are perfectly offset by musical and life partner John’s sophisticated songwriting.” - Sean Ben Parker (Blasting News)
“Bloody brilliant night at The Old Oak…Dandelion Charm - just, WOW!” - Jimbo Tipler (Folk at The Old Oak)
“Dandelion Charm...clearly destined for greatness” - Chris Giles (Folk Is Not A Rude Word)
