LowDown / Bio

LowDown was formed in early July of 2004, in the swamps of Kingston, GA. This is the perfect location for a southern, thrash metal band to put together their works of musical talent and art that is loved by many in their home state and many other states surrounding them. The band makes up of five members that dominate their instruments: Brett Smith (lead vocalist), Mark Lephew (lead guitarist), Keith Patterson (lead guitarist), (BASSIST NEEDED!!!) and Derek Smith (Drummer).Packing up their trailer for years, working hard, and consistently by hitting the road in two vehicles, they set out to perform in many different venues to earn money so they could put out their first album on their own. Pushing forward and playing at venues such as: The Masquerade, The Darkside, The Local, Night Moves, House of Rock, The Atirum, Double Brach (AL), The Local (Tenn.), Ziggy's (Tenn.) and many other great venues that they where more than eager to play. Their first album, “Sinner’s Blues”, was put out by themselves on March 7th 2009, recorded at Led Belly Studios in Woodstock, GA. With their years of hard work and determination rewarded with funding that was made possible by playing shows continuously, they played to a packed house at “The Scene” in Marietta, GA at their CD release party on March 7th 2009!They will again put out another album themselves (yet to be titled but half way written) if their driving hope to sign on to a label is not fulfilled. There is NO stopping this band, the addiction of working hard and dedicating their time, money, and most importantly their lives to this band has become bigger than themselves. Thank you for your time in reading this script, we hope you take the time to enjoy our music, it means everything to us and we hope to see you all at a show very soon!
