Los Angeles/Toronto based singer-songwriter Lowell has had a unique journey from dropping out of college and working as a stripper to finding her footing as the go-to songwriter for platinum selling pop stars (Hailee Steinfeld, JoJo, Demi Lovato, Lennon Stella, Charlie Puth). She has freshly earned double platinum (“Not A Love Song” by Bülow) and gold (“Selfish” by Madison Beer) certified plaques with a new solo body of work on the way.
Lowell recently released the soulful single “Lemonade” and today she delivers new single “God Is A Fascist” a moody ballad with her signature poetically brazen lyrics and universally relatable subject matter for these isolating times. Pivoting from the pop world where she has found great success, Lowell chose to present these songs how they were written, in their most essential state and most simple essence.
Lowell shares, “This song is very near and dear to me. Written at a low point in both my career and my relationship, it’s simply about feeling like you belong together and being forced to be apart, which I think a lot of people can relate to at the moment. Some people might feel a bit offended by the title, but it really isn’t this anti-religion statement. It’s simply a symbol of the helplessness I was feeling in my life at the time- that feeling like life is laid out for you whether you like it or not. Interesting fact- most of the song actually came to me in a grocery store in Burbank, CA while I was squeezing avocados. Another interesting fact- Burbank was on fire.“
After leaving stripping and escaping a manipulative manager, Lowell was tapped by producer Martin Terefe to create her debut EP featuring collaborations with members of Coldplay, A-Ha and Mew. The EP caught the attention of indie label Arts & Crafts, who released her 2014 debut which prominently addressed her feminist politics and time spent as a sex worker.
Continuing her multidisciplinary artistic trajectory, Lowell co-wrote Bloodthirsty, a 2020 Canadian horror feature film about a young vegan indie singer, who finds herself turning into a werewolf under the pressure of recording her anticipated second album. The film features several new songs, including “Lemonade”. It was accepted into Frontieres at Cannes and premiered at both Fantastic Fest in Austin TX (the US’s biggest genre fest) and Fantasia in Montreal (only 10 films accepted world wide).
