Blood, Sweat, and Tears sum up the Brody Lowe Band in three little words. From day one the Brody Lowe Band has been fighting not only to get their name out, but for the music to transend over anything that has been heard before. After playing shows up and down the coast of Oregon, they've gathered a following who feels their message and knows their struggle. Their message? Passion. And everyone in the band feels it. Beginning in 2003 with a one man act being fed up with playing in coffee houses and smokey bars all alone, Brody Lowe set out to create his long awaited dream of having his own band. With a large library of original songs and a good following already, he figured that it would only be a matter of time before his band would be up and ready to roar across the Northwest. After a night of hanging up fliers, Brody met a man who didn't know it at the time, would soon be enveloped in a train ride that so far has lasted more than 2 years. Enter Matthew Slaughter, with more than 15 years of experience on the bass guitar in blues bands, metal bands and other various bands that have helped in creating his very own unique style of bass playing. With Matthew on bass guitar all they needed was a drummer to create a power trio. After playing with a few drummers through out the next year, nothing seemed to click and the project, saddly was going no where. Then one day Brody recieved a call, it was Matthew saying that he had found a drummer who would like to try out for the band. That night at the rehersal, it was obvious, they had found their missing piece. Enter Joel Albrecht who had started playing the drums over 20 years ago, playing in hard rock bands, country bands, pop-rock bands, and has toured all over the US. Needless to say, Brody felt very honored to have musicians of such caliber being excited to be in his creation, playing his songs. The result has almost undescribable. The powerful blending of rock, alternative, folk, country, emotion and passion coming from every drum hit, melody and bass line. After another year of playing clubs, recording and producing and EP (In the Meantime:2004) and a full-length album (Everyday Aftewards:2005), the band still needed something to give them the edge. Enter Kris Gillmore, a former New York state resident who has played in jazz, funk, hard rock, and solo acoustic acts for many years. Kris's harmonious guitar work not only filled out the bands sound, but added new life to a band that had already had so much life in it. Today the sound is undeniable, and with the release of 'Everday Afterwards' marking their first full-length album, the fans base is only growing larger and larger. The Brody Lowe Band knows of the blood, sweat and tears that are to come in the future, but now with a team that is four members strong instead of only one, there is nothing that can stop them.
