Music types: Rock, Punk
Description:
A rock n roll band from West Virginia, Lowlander emerged onto the scene when their single, “Piece of Mind”, received notice from mainstream radio and music critics, alike. Their songs run the gamut from all out rock to J Mascis style melodica to bruised acoustic balladry, which has led a few reviewers to coin the band's sound as neo-rock n roll. Despite the convergence of styles and flavors, Lowlander exhibit a cohesive brand of 21st century rock indebted as much to the youthful aggression of The Ramones & The Stooges as it is to, one imagines, the four members Scottish heritage.


Band Members:
Jim Courtney plays drums and provides vocals for the group, an odd pairing but nonetheless unique. He sounds like Paul Westerberg if he cut down on his smoking and at times provides heartfelt and endearing musings on everyday life struggles and relationships gone awry. He is joined by his brother, Jerry Courtney, on bass and vocals, as well as the additional brother duo of Kris Boynes on lead guitar & Sean Boynes, who provides guitar and vocals to the proceedings. The energy is palpable in each song as this dynamic four-piece celebrate rock music and illustrate a chemistry that is inherent in a band composed of brothers.
