Los Angeles, CA, May 19, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Authentik Artists is proud to announce the signing of singer/songwriter Michael Lowman from Durban, South Africa. Discovered and developed by Authentik Artists, Lowman will release his debut EP In My Own Words digitally on June 8, 2010.
Michael Lowman grew up in a home filled with music from iconic artists such as The Beatles and Eric Clapton, and although no one in his family apart from his father played a musical instrument, Michael developed a huge love and appreciation for the art form. When he was just ten years old his father was tragically killed in a car accident and he was instantly forced to view the world through a different set of eyes.
The next few years would prove to be some of the hardest of his life. He has often said that these were his “material gathering” years, and although he didn’t know it at the time the songwriter in him was taking shape. He started playing guitar at the age of 17 and started singing and writing songs shortly after. Michael, now just 23, sounds like someone who has been playing his entire life.
Lowman came to the attention of Authentik CEO Scott Austin and Studio at the Palms Director Zoe Thrall through Youtube videos of Michael performing acoustic covers of Damian Rice and other iconic artists’ songs. After just a few months of planning, fund-raising and songwriting, Michael found himself on a plane to Las Vegas ready to record with the help of producer Mark Needham (Fleetwood Mac, The Killers) and some incredibly talented musicians. Michael and his “dream team” recorded eight songs at the state-of-the-art facilities at Studio at the Palms, 6 fully-produced songs and 2 acoustic “b-sides.”
With his gift for storytelling and an underlying rhythmic and melodic sense on guitar, this young man just might be the next “real deal” to hit the music scene.
