GET TO KNOW KATLYN LOWE
Katlyn Lowe has a versatility that few artists have today. A perfect blend of traditional and modern country, she has proven she is in it for the long haul. Her debut single “Rise Up,” an anthem to fighting for your dreams, landed at #69 on the Music Row Charts. Following that, the single “Wild” went to #44, and her latest single titled “Last Time” is quickly climbing up the charts.
Hailing from Jacksonville, Florida by way of Rochester, New York, Katlyn has been writing songs since the age of twelve. Determined to make her voice heard on her latest album, Lowe wrote or co-wrote eight of the ten songs. The album was recorded on Music Row at the historic RCA Studio C and produced by Jim Della Croce and Eddie Gore. Lending their talents to the instruments, were some of the industry’s top musicians including: George Marinelli, Billy Thomas, Glen Worf, Joe Spivey, Bill Lloyd, Eric Montgomery, Nathan Dugger. Some of the credits for the musicians include Vince Gill, Marren Morris, Bonnie Raitt, and The Time Jumpers.
In addition to the constant support of her family, Katlyn recalls two distinct experiences that gave her the courage to move to Nashville to fully pursue her career in music. The opportunity to open for Sunny Sweeny came up while she was juggling double duties as a preschool teacher during the day and a waitress in the evenings. She also took a class with Linda Davis that resulted in a performance showcase. Katlyn was able to sit down with Linda and her daughter Hillary Scott (of Lady Antebellum fame) and have a conversation about the idea of moving to Nashville.
An equal passion to songwriting, performing is where her self-proclaimed “country sass” comes out the strongest. Katlyn has opened for some of country’s leading performers including Devin Dawson, Colt Ford, and Tony Jackson. Her energetic performances and ability to connect with her audiences have begun to build her a loyal fan base as well as promoters booking her for multiple shows.
Not one to sit around, Katlyn has taken full advantage of living in Music City. She has appeared as an extra in music videos, the TV show Nashville, and had a guest starring role on the 700 Club. Finding time to give back to her community, Katlyn volunteers for the organization Musician’s On Call, which sends musician’s into hospitals to sing to patients, as well as the Nashville Humane Society.
Katlyn’s observations on women in country radio has come up on multiple occasions as a current hot topic of conversation. As a huge supporter of women in the genre, Katlyn says, “I am so happy to see women supporting women right now in country music. We are so much stronger together than we ever could be apart. If we stand with one another, I truly believe we can really make a change in the industry.” Her long list of influences includes Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood, Reba McEntire, Trisha Yearwood, Martina McBride, Marren Morris, and Ashley McBryde.
2019 has been an extremely busy time for Katlyn as she’s played numerous shows, had multiple singles on the Music Row charts, embarked on two radio tours, and she shows no signs of slowing down. Her album Chasing Tomorrow has a little bit of something for everyone to enjoy. It can be found on iTunes, Spotify, and all other music platforms.
