LOWELL (Toronto/London art-dance-pop, Arts & Crafts)
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 both she and her namesake: fearless, determined, and a natural pack leader.
Born in Calgary, she eventually migrated to the Yukon where she lived with her father in Carcross, near a mountain that once offered passage to gold hunters. Appropriately, the area was also once a preying haven for wolves; so Lowell drew strength from desolate beachside cabin she and her father called home before finding her way to Massachusetts, Ottawa, Georgia, then back to Calgary before basing herself in Toronto and London. Since, she's played to crowds across Europe, worked with the industry's finest writers, producers, and musicians, and compromised nothing to create the stirring, commanding -- yet joyous songs that have found a home under her lone namesake.
After earning the attention of Martin Terefe (KT Tunstall, James Blunt, Jason Mraz), Sacha Skarbek (Lana Del Rey, Adele, Miley Cyrus), James Bryan (Nelly Furtado, The Philosopher Kings), and Paul Herman (Dido), Lowell was invited to Kensaltown Studios in London to write with all of them. However, what they worked on wasn't in sync with her own vision - so, supported in her decision to stay true to herself, she and the pack scrapped what they had and started all over again. Soon, they saw the completion of her EP, I Killed Sara V., and the beginnings of her full-length record, We Loved Her Dearly - her debut album on Arts & Crafts.
