ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Leigh Evin McCullough is not your average singer-songwriter. Armed with an acoustic guitar, an unmistakable voice and a whole lot of attitude, Leigh pushes a little more than the envelope with her clever lyrical twists and catchy hooks that leave audiences asking, “Did she just say that?”

With the help of her band, The Low Down-Mike Marsden on bass and Chuck Sansone (Casolando) on drums-Leigh’s music is a vicious mix of funk, rock, and pop.

"She grabs your attention, entertains you, and gets you thinking...and you can't ask for more than that," according to Blues Bunny Magazine (UK), who recently bestowed the singer-songwriter's 2006 release, Workin' it's highest honors, 5 carrots!

Although Workin' was just released, in August 2006, it's songs have been played on major and indie radio stations across the country and around the globe, such as iChannel (US), Radio Fly 1 (US), Smiling Stranger Radio(UK), Upstage Radio (US-NJ), WGCI (US-IL), B96 (US-IL), Indie 104(US-CA), Nette Radio (US-CA), Moozikoo Radio (US-TN), just to name a few. Moozikoo Radio even added "Breathe" to their Best of Indie Americana Compilation in the Winter of 2006.

Thanks to her colleagues at Garageband.com, 3 of her songs were 'Track of the Day,' and 2 were 'Track of the Week'! "Breathe" was 'Track of the Day' on October 4th in Groove Rock and 'Track of the Week' the second week of December 2006. "Workin'" was 'Track of the Day' in Groove Rock on October 13th 2006. "Masturbating" was 'Track of the Day' in Comedy on January 17th and 'Track of the Week' the first full week of February 2007.

"Breathe" and "Masturbating" were voted Best Female Vocals for 2 weeks in two different categories! "I" was voted Best Drums and Best Female Vocals. "Lonely" was voted Best Bass and Best Drums. "Workin'" was voted Best Keyboards. Check it: www.garageband.com/artist/leighevinmccullough

On the home front, Leigh and The LD recently made the top 5 in Buzz Magazine's (Chicago) Gender Blender with their song, "I". Leigh and her band will be featured along with the other Gender Blender Bands in Buzz Magazine sometime in July 2007.

Also, on the local front, Leigh and the LD were part of the very first "Best of Chicago Acoustic Underground" held on June 1, 2007. The trio, of course, has been invited back for more.

As a side note, Leigh Evin McCullough has a community/team oriented approach to running her operation. "The Low Down wears more than two faces," Leigh says. When Mike and Chuck can't make gigs, Leigh pulls from a long list of substitutes that live around the Chicagoland area. When she can't bring her band mates with her, she simply searches for musicians in the towns in which she is traveling to via myspace. She sends them a CD, they learn the songs, and when the gig comes, they have fun. Leigh takes her music seriously, but has fun while she's at it, and has no trouble getting others to share the experience.

Not only does Leigh run several versions of The Low Down, she is also in charge of her own business called, On Edge Records that promotes her music, distributes her albums, and books all of her shows. Thanks to her super hero tech friends and some mega-watt marketing skills, OER has given Leigh and The LD a cozy indie home.

Where the hell did this band come from?!?!
Finally a band with a chick singer that can actually rock!! I'm so used to hearing these lovelorn, acoustic wimpy chick singer/songwriters that get noticed by someone, but then fail to impress. I AM IMPRESSED with this band. Finally a chick with BALLS!!!! This band rocks hard!!!! Check 'em out and redeem your faith in chick rock.

far better than anyone can expect
Hey guys, you know, you gotta check out this album. It's far better than anyone can expect from a privateer. I thought the first album was good, and seeing this one performed and perfected on stage, you've gotta pick it up. All you gotta do is hit one of her shows and purchase it.

She definately has it going on. Great new sound, excllent band mates, one hell of a design for the album and the site. Without knowing her, you wouldn't know she's on a budget.

All right all you fans. Let's get this board full of threads and thoughts for her to post on her various sites.

Good times all around
This CD demonstrates great feeling from all three artists. Leigh's voice and acoustic guitar make you want to sing along, and the strong rhythms from the funky bass and drums are guaranteed to get your head boppin', your feet tappin'and your mouth a smilin'. The lyrical content varies from thought-provoking to truly funny, and the music ensures all the songs rock out. Leigh Evin McCullough and the Low Down have done an excellent job with this debut album. Guaranteed to be a good time for all.

Great sound, this band really clicks!
Loved the first CD, and this one shows that this band has really grown. Hard to believe this was produced independently and on a very tight budget. You HAVE to pick this up, you won't be able to get the tunes or the lyrics out of your head. Especially like "Breathe" and "Georgie". You guys rock! Keep saying what you think, Leigh!
