Elizabeth Lowell Boland, known by stage name Lowell, is a Canadian singer and songwriter,[1] known by the song "Ride", which features Icona Pop, and is featured in the 2016 film, Nerve.


Originally from Calgary, Alberta,[1] Boland moved to Toronto, Ontario at age 18 to study music at the University of Toronto,[2] but soon dropped out and spent time working as a stripper under the name "Sara Victoria".[1]

Musical career[edit]

During this time, she began writing some song demos on ukulele,[3] which came to the attention of Canadian music manager Mike Dixon.[3] Dixon forwarded them in turn to producer Martin Terefe, and Boland made her debut in 2012 as a guest vocalist on Apparatjik's 2012 EP If You Can, Solve This Jumble.[4]

She signed to Arts & Crafts, and released the EP I Killed Sara V in February 2014.[5] Her full-length album debut, We Loved Her Dearly, followed in September 2014.[6]

Her song, "Palm Trees" featured as soundtrack in EA Sports game, FIFA 15.

On April 6, 2018 she released her sophomore album Lone Wolf.

She co-wrote all three songs on the debut EP from Bülow, Damaged Vol. 1, which was released November 2017 on Wax Records, including the single "Not A Love Song." Damaged Vol. 1 was praised by critics for its "real and authentic" portrayal of Bülow's voice.[7]
