FLOW featuring Will Ackerman
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 todays most acclaimed independent artists. FLOW is an anagram of the groups names Fiona Joy Hawkins (Australian Pianist), Lawrence Blatt (acoustic guitarist), Jeff Oster (Flugelhorn master) and Grammy winning guitarist and producer Will Ackerman.
FLOW has returned to Imaginary Road Studios with producers Will Ackerman and Tom Eaton, and have recorded their new album, PROMISE. Theyll debut new music from it at Next Stage!
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.

FLOW came together out of friendship, a shared recording history and a passion for playing live and touring. After a full house debut at Carnegies 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 plans to return to Imaginary Road Studios to record with producers Will Ackerman and Tom Eaton. The group performed an encore performance at Carnegie Hall in 2018.
