Al Fear | Cajon
I recently discovered the sweetly refreshing music of a new two-piece, sometimes three-piece, band called Lady Lowe.
The lady herself is Jenn Lowe on vocals and keyboards, accompanied by Don Scott on vocals and acoustic guitar and occasionally also supported by Al Fear on percussion.
The group has created a contemporary style of music. With the intimacy of an acoustic show, songs are beautifully played and sung with passion.
Don and Jenn grew up together in Solon. Don went off to tour with bands such as Kansas, Hall & Oates and L.A. Guns. He eventually moved back to Iowa few years ago and re-connected with Jenn. They have been performing together for more than a year.
“When Don and I started playing we were originally called “Lowe” but I always thought we needed something a little bit more fun, so we added a little sugar to it,” Jenn says.
Their set list has a fair helping of the sweet stuff as well. It is full of bouncy and captivating tunes, laced with ballads and served with a large helping of mood and atmosphere.
Recently they’ve begun to add originals to their repertoire.
“ ‘Once Upon a Time’ is our newest single we are working on,” Jenn says. “It’s a sad breakup song that anyone who’s loved someone and lost can relate to.”
