Lowrider (Australia) Emerging onto the Adelaide music scene in late 2003, the foursome met through the city's tight knit music community after playing in different bands. Brothers Paul and John Bartlett aka Papa John and Mr Cee, teamed with Scott Duncan aka Scotty D and Joe Braithwaite to form Lowrider. Their distinct sound has been developed organically drawing from very diverse influences including Donny Hathaway, Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield, The Roots, Mos Def and Erykah Badu. Lowrider will not conform to any genre or creed and have let their sound develop purely, leaving the onus on the listener to define what they are hearing. With smoothly delivered vocals over a simple ensemble of beats bass and keys, Lowrider's much anticipated album is an immaculate fusion of hip hop and soul and one of the best Australian releases of the summer.
Acclaimed local four-piece Lowrider make an emphatic return this February with their third studio album, ‘Black Stones’. Recorded throughout 2012 between the famed Red Bull Studios in Los Angeles and Chapel Lane Studios in Adelaide, the album presents a bold and exciting sonic progression for the band. To celebrate the release of ‘Black Stones’, Lowrider will take their renowned live show on the road, hitting a series of spots all across the east coast throughout March and April and kicking things off in their hometown of Adelaide on Saturday February 16th. Since their debut release in 2008, Lowrider has embarked on an exciting transition from intimate hometown venues to sold-out national headline shows to coveted support slots on national tours for Alicia Keys, Lupe Fiasco and John Legend. Their 2010’s Round the World LP, earned them their first ARIA nomination, and saw them land on the national Big Day Out, Bluesfest and Pyramid Rock festivals.
In 2012, the band headed to the US for highly acclaimed performances in LA and at Austin’s famed SXSW festival. In 2013, Lowrider presented the fruit of their labour – ‘Black Stones’. For band members Joe, Scott, John and Paul, ‘Black Stones’ scraps any grand preconceptions and allows the undeniable chemistry between the four of them to take control. Simple, focused and proud.

Lowrider (Sweden) Lowrider is a Swedish stoner rock band, formed in the mid-1990s by bassist/singer Peder Bergstrand and lead guitarist/singer Ole Hellquist, along with guitarist Niclas Stalfors and drummer Andreas Eriksson. Lowrider released the Nebula/Lowrider Double EP in 1999 together with ambassadors of psychedelic stoner rock, Nebula, who had just come into existence after their members departed from Fu Manchu. The EP was released in time for the beginning of Lowrider's European tour in 2000, when they played fourteen venues in eight different countries, co-headlining with Dozer and once with Spiritual Beggars . Their debut album Ode to Io was released the same year and unleashed a controversy regarding their musical influences. Opinion in the media was divided, as although they gained critical praise from some (hailed as "Sweden's answer to all that is rocky, funky, gritty and downright rock n' roll." by Critical Metal), others dismissed them, with the ever-influential Kerrang! awarding them the "Most Convincing Kyuss Clones Award" (). Although it was announced that, "Lowrider has started the recording process of the new album" in 2003, there has not been any news since.
Whether or not the band will return from this hiatus is unknown. Lowrider were due to get back together for a one-off gig at the Upcoming Desertfest 2013 in London. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
