ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Their rustic purity and earthy sensuality is the heart of the current roots music revival… With a fresh sound and originality, they’re walking a musical road with a clear vision for their songs.”
(Joe Ross, Roots Music Report)

The Sweet Lowdown can take you anywhere you want to go, from a sunny front porch to the outer reaches of the universe. By blending original songwriting and three-part harmonies with an old-time instrumental groove, this award-winning acoustic roots trio from Victoria, B.C. creates a unique yet timeless sound that takes listeners on a pleasurable and memorable ride.

Drawn together by mutual passion for old-time music, hard-driving bluegrass, sweet harmonies and well-wrought songs, The Sweet Lowdown (Amanda Blied--guitar, Shanti Bremer--banjo and Miriam Sonstenes--fiddle) pays homage to its musical roots while simultaneously breaking new ground. Each member contributes to the band’s original repertoire and each has a unique vocal flair as well as impressive instrumental chops.

These are all well evident on The Sweet Lowdown’s latest album May, recorded and produced by Adrian Dolan (The Bills, Ruth Moody), mastered by Joby Baker (The Cowboy Junkies, The Bills) and released in October 2012. The album features ten original compositions, including four instrumentals and two traditional songs that demonstrate a wide range of influences, including Irish and Indian music. It follows on the heels of the band’s highly praised self-titled 2011 album, which received a nomination for “Album of the Year” by the Vancouver Island Music Awards. 

Winners of Victoria’s 2011 M-Award for Favourite Roots/World Music Group, The Sweet Lowdown has the ability to play to, draw in, and excite a diverse audience - young and old, lovers of traditional music as well as those new to it.
