A classically trained musician, Toronto-based singer Lowell suffers from a rare neurological condition known as synaesthesia which causes her to process sound as colours thus having a huge influence on her music and visions.
Despite the fun and chaotic video for ‘I Love You Money’, Lowell writes to empower herself as much as her listeners. Lyrics openly tackle sexual abuse, rape, abortion, and women’s rights. She stridently addresses the lack of LGBT rights in our society as well the ignorance about (and simultaneous obsession with) homosexuality.
Lowell releases her debut album ‘We Loved Her Dearly’ in the UK on 9 March through Arts & Crafts.
