Life is like a long pause in an awkward conversation
When you die you probably think of all the things you meant to say…
Playing literate but tuneful alternative-folk songs, illuminated by a sharp-edged voice and poetic lyrics, Brian Lowen’s Kid is the stage name of award-winning Canadian singer-songwriter Matt Lowen.
An entertaining & charismatic live performer, Matt combines story & song to engage, inspire, and delight audiences of all sizes. His unique wit and humour, musical virtuosity, and deep repertoire of original music make for memorable performances that traverse a rich and varied emotional landscape.
His newest EP, AND THE DEVIL MAKES FIVE, which earned Matt his second Fraser Valley Music Award Nomination in the folk category, marks the end of the album trilogy Matt began in 2012 with his debut release JUNKIE’S BANK ACCOUNT. The EP’s guitar-driven sound & inspired melodies tie up the philosophical loose-ends left hanging in 2015’s wistful & melancholic LAST YEARS LEAVES.
