ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“The Blackguard’s Waltz,” is a stellar collection of five songs with a solid pop skeleton, a big, wounded heart and the kind of smart/sensitive insight that’s difficult to come by. If you’re looking for something that tickles your brain and your soul without insulting either, Low’s mini-album should definitely find its way into your collection.

Barbara J Mitchell- The Portland Tribune


"The Blackguard's Waltz is the welcome return of one of Portland's best songwriters. After drawing on family history for his dustbowl debut and kicking out the jams roadhouse style his last time out, James Low scales things back on his new EP. The addition of piano helps bring a pop sensibility to these songs we haven't necessarily heard from Low before-- from the haunting closer, "Isn't It Funny," to the radio-ready "Before You Let Me Down" (which may be the best pop song you hear outta Stumptown all year). If you've never heard him, or have taken him for granted, this new EP will show you why some of us hope Low doesn't wait another six years to put out a new recording."

the blackguard's waltz
I took a chance on James Low's first album 'Mexiquita' on a chance recommendation I noticed on the internet ( I may not have been entirely sober at the time) But what a great album! My only critisism of his latest EP 'The Blackguard's Waltz' is that it is too short. His strengths as a songwriter and the great voice are well showcased here. Give this a listen, then buy his back catalogue and wait, like me for the next one.
