Autumn Rowe is a New York based singer/songwriter who was born and raised in the Bronx. She honed her skills as part of the New York City Housing Authority Choir which also featured future hit songwriters, Claude Kelly and Lil Eddie, with whom Autumn established early friendships.
Her formative years were spent on the New York session circuit, where she sang and wrote songs with a diverse array of artists ranging from jazz trumpeter Randy Brecker (with producer Gary Haase) to hip-hop producer Swizz Beats (Autumn was the featured artist on his production, “One Day”, a charity song for The Children’s Cancer & Blood Foundation) and long term band leader Music Man Ty.
In addition, Autumn formed her own self-titled band and became a permanent fixture on Manhattan’s live music scene. Through a neo-soul orientated album of original music, "Love Child", produced with Scott Jacoby and mixed by Grammy winning engineer Dave Darlington, was recorded in 2006, it was never released, as the band’s sound changed to include more dance and pop elements.
By 2009, Autumn’s career as a songwriter began to take flight, after signing with B-Room/Water Music Publishing, which led her to a joint deal including Steller Songs/Stargate Productions(Rihanna “Rude Boy”, Beyonce “Irreplaceable”)/EMI UK. The result of their collaboration was the first single, “Happiness”, on Stargate’s new artist, Alexis Jordan, in a co-venture with rapper Jay-Z’s new label, Star Roc/Roc Nation/Sony. The song was written and produced by Stargate in conjunction with dance music DJ/Producer, Deadmau5. FiFa and Sony Music Entertainment has named the single, "Happiness" the Official Song of the 2011's FIFA Women’s World Cup in Germany. Autumn has also penned Jordan's second and third singles "Good Girl," which charted at #1 on the Billboard Dance/Club Play Songs chart and "Hush Hush" respectively which were again co-written and produced by Stargate with French producer Sandy Vee.
Autumn has also been busy working in the studio with numerous other producers on a slew of major label projects slated for release over the next several months. Artists she has recently worked with include Alexandra Burke, Leona Lewis, Estelle, Cher Lloyd and Tanya Lacey.
Autumn's newest releases are "Swagger Jagger" (Syco/Sony), performed by Cher Lloyd (co-written with The Runners) and "Collide" performed by Leona Lewis (Syco/Sony) and co-written with Tim Berg (aka Avicii) and produced by Sandy Vee.
Autumn’s band project remains close to her heart and her success as a songwriter has increased its industry interest. As a pre curser of things to come, acclaimed French shoe designer Christian Louboutin has used all new original Autumn band material (written and produced with band leader Music Man Ty) in a series of short films that serve to highlight his directorial skills.
