Review Extract – “The guitar is nimble with its growlings, belting out riffs capable of searing paint from walls,then issuing delicate strumming designed to instill a heavenly dreamstate.Whether displaying intensity or delicacy, Lowe shows a remarkable mastery not only of the instrument but to the diverse emotional potential inherent in both sonic directions.” Sonic Curiousity
