Sam Lowry is an artist that is perhaps best described as "dark americana". Lowry and his ever-changing ensemble of talented back up (members of Murder by Death, Early Day Miners, and Duraluxe among others) have released four albums out on Higher Step Records, including the latest release 'Songs of My Enemy". Overall Sam Lowry's work is a brutal and self-aware and honest look at a mans mind as he sinks into a post-divorce depression, deals with abandonement through the breaking of social patterns, and always displays the sort of hope for something better that has been a staple of the acoustic driven genre since it's conception. A deep, casual, resonance delivers his straight forward lyrics in a plain and genuine voice that reflects the music genre of middle-class middle-america, sick and tired of being in the middle. Reviews: CREATIVE LOAFING Dark, brooding, tasty stuff. CD BABY A creative, dark and deep venture into the shared musical crevasse of artists like Nick Cave, Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen. Sparse, empty and despondent, this album slowly oozes its voice from its pores, dropping pools of dark, liquidy hopelessness into a deep well of bottomless imagination. With incomplete thoughts and scattered pieces of wisdom, Sam Lowry weaves a shadowy but stirring album for those who are in no hurry to understand. SPLENDID E-ZINE If every singer-songwriter had this much power behind such an economy of words, we'd probably all have a higher consciousness by now.

Maybe that's what Sam Lowry's nudging us toward, one breathy, retributive melody at a time. THE PIN-UP Lowry works his songs like small garden snakes, getting the lot primed and ready to strike the hand of another who thinks he can easily charm them. All notions of rustic, or alt.country or what-have-you seems kind of moot by now, and even more when Lowry lowers voice to that parched sing-song vocal. CITYBEAT With a deflated, Leonard Cohen-like grumble and an unexpected musical backdrop that blends together traditional acoustic instruments like banjo, guitar and fiddle with warm yet tricky drum loops and vintage-sounding keyboards, Lowry has concocted an honest, dark and surprisingly melodic exercise in aural subtlety that works to maximum effect. His textural, slanted and poetic take on Roots music gives new meaning to the phrase "American Gothic." Read more on Last.fm.
