Forty years after Windham Hill became a catalyst for a global musical phenomenon, its bountiful legacy of best-selling instrumental artists and Grammy-winning musicians extends into a new age with FLOW – a new four-piece ensemble comprised of Windham Hill Records Founder Will Ackerman and three of today’s most acclaimed independent artists. FLOW is an anagram of the group’s names Fiona Joy Hawkins (Australian Pianist), Lawrence Blatt (acoustic guitarist), Jeff Oster (Flugelhorn master) and Grammy winning guitarist and producer Will Ackerman.
“In the last few years, the New Age genre has seen a critical reconsideration, with carefully curated compilations of historical material, while both veterans and descendants of the genre are creating new music that merits serious attention. A good example is the group FLOW, which includes none other than steel string guitarist WILL ACKERMAN, in a kind of New Age “supergroup.” Stephen Hill, Hearts of Space.
FLOW came together out of friendship, a shared recording history and a passion for playing live and touring. After a full house debut at Carnegie’s Weill Recital Hall in 2017, FLOW celebrated the release of their multi-award winning album with a tour that began at New Orleans Jazz Museum, the ZMR Awards Concert and culminated at the Los Angeles Grammy Museum. After winning the much coveted Album of the Year at both the ZMR Awards in New Orleans and the IMA Awards at the Lincoln Centre in NY, FLOW has returned to Imaginary Road Studios and have completed their new album PROMISE, produced by Will Ackerman and Tom Eaton. PROMISE will be released on August 30, 2019. The group will present a much anticipated encore performance at Carnegie Hall on September 27th, 2019.
