FLOW is a New Age music group – Will Ackerman, Fiona Joy, Lawrence Blatt and Jeff Oster.

In early 2015, Lawrence Blatt invited Fiona Joy and Jeff Oster to join him at Will Ackerman’s Imaginary Road Studios to create an album Inspired by the iconic Windham Hill ensembles.

Once recording began, it became clear that Will could be an essential part of this group as an artist as well as producer. When invited, Will was happy to join the others and FLOW was born. With Will and Tom Eaton producing, this group will surely capture the essence of today’s New Age music.

Look, being honest, FLOW doesn’t need me telling you how good it is. The only way a meeting of these four musical minds could be bad is they covered songs by the Archies, KC & the Sunshine Band, and the 1910 Fruitgum Company. I would’ve been shocked if these cats produced anything but brilliance—and that’s what FLOW is. Brilliant.

Bill Binkelman (Zone Music Reporter)

Every genre needs a supergroup. With FLOW we finally have such a group in New Age music! I’m happy to report that their self-titled debut album is worthy of the «super» tag too. «FLOW» is a reminder of what made New Age music into an international phenomenon in the late 1980s, while at the same time showing why this genre is still relevant today.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
