About Lowell:

Literally and figuratively, Lowell is a wolf. Her very name stems from the French origin of the word, but her approach to music, creating, and the way she’s embraced both are a testament to her namesake: fearless, determined, and a natural pack leader. Lowell’s hands-on approach to her album and to her performances has allowed for a creative and professional identity rich with individuality, braveness, and imagination.  We Loved Her Dearly – her debut album is on Arts & Crafts.
