Lowry is a Brooklyn-based indie rock band with members originally hailing from Kansas, New Zealand, Australia, North Carolina and Canada. Originally emerging from New York City's "anti-folk" scene, the band has gone through several incarnations before settling into its current line-up in early 2008. Their debut studio album 'Awful Joy', which blended alternative country, psychedelia and rock was released in 2005. Signed to Engine Room Recordings in 2008, they released their sophomore studio album 'Love Is Dead' October 26, 2008.[1]

Lowry appeared at the All Points West Music & Arts Festival on August 8, 2008 on the Queen of the Valley stage alongside Grizzly Bear, Andrew Bird, The Duke Spirit and Mates of State.[2]

Lowry recorded a cover version of Toto's "Africa" for Engine Room Recordings' compilation album Guilt by Association Vol. 2, which was released in November 2008.[3]
