Jason Lowe (NSW)
"Jason Lowe is by far one of the most impressive young talents I've heard in years… he's got soul, he's got something worth saying and says it with confidence and pride in his performance..." - Lloyd Spiegel, Ambassador Australian Blues Music Festival/ Multiple Blues Award Winner.
Natural soul that can't be faked, a command of his instrument that's well beyond his years and a voice that any seasoned performer would die for, is what makes 18 year old Jason Lowe unique.
Seeded in the 'roots' genre, Jason's original flavour of deep, emotionally charged melodies capture any audience while his exceptional skill as a lap steel guitarist allows him to flow freely into just about any style.
Turning professional at 16, Jason began playing local venues in his home town of Newcastle, performing at some of their major music events.
In January 2007, Jason was selected to perform at the Tamworth Country Music Festival on behalf of Cole Clark Guitars. His performances alongside some of Australia's most respected guitarists and songwriters were a highlight, with many of the artists using Jason's slide technique to vamp up their own material.
Although Jason's recordings do him justice as an artist, what must be known is that his live performances are just something more, they simply must be seen to believed, he holds something intensively true, deep and captivating that is well beyond his age, and has seen him stun and hold audiences everywhere on his impressive solo touring of the east coast.
More recently, Jason's singles 'Faith' and 'How we let it be' have received airplay on Triplej radio and 'Faith' has debuted at no.1 in its genre in the charts for Triple j Unearthed and no.11 in the overall 100.
Also Jason has just returned from a successful 2 week tour throughout Melbourne and the east coast, and now has the independent Record label Black Market Music to now help him in booking shows and tours Australia wide.
"Jason Lowe is an inspiringly talented young musician and a great person to boot, with the ability to 'wow' even the most seasoned musician and keep audiences glued to their seats" - Anthony Snape (multiple Musicoz winner)
"Jason just floors me every time I see him play. His heart is golden and is expressed with every note he plays and sings. He's got the sensibility to be one of the most in demand players around - but when you hear his own songs, you know he is destined for something much greater." - Adam Miller (finger picking guitar champion 2002)
