Indie Artist Matt Lowell Set to Release Album in Spring, Plays NYC Shows

In support of his upcoming release, Matt Lowell will be playing Mercury Lounge on Jan. 8 and The Knitting Factory Brooklyn on Jan. 11.

Lowell will be showing off his new sound with songs from his soon to be released EP, co-written with Dead Oceans Recording artist John Vanderslice and produced by Joel Hamilton (Black Keys, Matisyahu, Sparklehorse) and John Davis. Lowell’s live band will be featured, including Joe Tomino on drums, from Matisyahu and Dub Trio, and John Davis on Bass, from JoJo Nayers NERVE.

Having been in the New York music scene for a while, the independent artist is looking forward for what the New Year has in store. After graduating Berklee College of Music and having two EP’s under his belt, there is no question this will be a highly anticipated release for 2011.

Lowell has played over 55 shows at popular venues such as BB Kings, Blender Theatre, Highline Ballroom and Irving Plaza, and festivals such as SXSW, CMJ and Sundance Film Festival.  He opened for well-known acts including: Eve 6, Jeffrey Gaines, Martin Sexton, Marcy Playground, Val Emmich, Will Dailey, Tony Lucca, Serena Ryder, Howie Day and many others.

Lowell’s warm, enveloping voice is likely familiar to your ears.  Being voted an “Artist To Watch” by Clear Channel and voted “Best of Long Island Singers for 2010”, these are two shows not to miss.
