Proud Larry’s Presents Lowen on Thursday, March 5 for a FREE SHOW
Singer-songwriter Lowen will bring her Only in my Dreams tour, and all the feelings that accompany the release, to Oxford on March 5, 2020 when she plays a free show at Proud Larry’s.
Love is often complex and intricate, isn’t it? In a lot of similar ways, Lowen’s love story is too.
Her newest single, “Just Fucking Let Me Love You” spotlight’s Lowen’s greatest asset – her ability to be entirely transparent when addressing her self-reflection in her songwriting. Presented from the perspective of her supportive wife, the new single affectionately addresses Lowen’s insecurities, sensitivities, and inabilities to respect and value herself. Walking a tightrope of vulnerability and command, she punctuates every candidly-transparent lyric with an explosively-charged outpour of raw emotion, while somehow, almost passively, hiding petite twinges of pain into the background.
Despite being almost overshadowed by the dominance of her massive vocal prowess, her control comes from her struggle, her storytelling, and her growth.
Her agony is important. Without it, Lowen loses the ability to shares the wisdom and experience she gained as she dealt with death and sorrow, serendipitous change and separation, responsibility and growth, and the exploration of new love and dying love, simultaneously.
However, as “Just Fucking Let Me Love You” suggests, Lowen’s wife stood strong, as soulmates often do. She reassured Lowen, holding as her wounds healed and supporting her unconditionally. As the duo sold all of their worldly possessions, keeping only the dog and a Martin Guitar, Lowen’s wife stood beside her steadfast as they left their homes and explored the world, where they would eventually find one fundamental truth: when people find “their person,” most tribulations are no match for true love.
