Born in Manitoba in a small mennonite farming community Lowell’s first influences ranged from the church choir harmonies he heard on Sundays to the twangy country tunes his father played when no one was around to listen. Moving to British Columbia in his adolescence he then discovered skateboarding and punk rock which inspired him to get his first guitar. Fueled by the energetic culture of the West Coast, Lowell spent his teens and twenties exploring music, writing and art. From the early 90’s in East Vancouver and a stint at Emily Carr School of Art, to the contemplative quiet life on the family farm in the Okanagan to the years in the Kootenays discovering bass culture and a love of the written word, Lowell’s passion for self-knowledge and expression churned, always just beneath the surface.
