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. 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. Whether through her lyrics, performance, video and visual artistry, merchandise design, fashion ideas, music video treatment, writing and co-directing, photo shoot conceptualizing, or her activism (whew), Lowell is in charge. She’s unsurprisingly, leading the pack.
