About Nigel G Lowndes

“You write songs that remind me of David Byrne and your voice can go deeper than mine!” - Chris Difford (Squeeze)

“Engaging songs with a quirky delivery. Songs full of hooks and striking chord changes.” - Chris Pepper - Producer - Saltwell Studios

Singer-Songwriter Nigel G. Lowndes sold his car to record his first album, so strong was the call to make music which had always been there, like an unrequited love.

Nigel grew up in poor circumstances, and as a child would escape through listening to music, feeling a deep connection that beckoned him to explore more, but which wouldn’t come to fruition until the age of 52 when he played his first solo gig.

He started to work at the age of 14 in order to get on and then studied hard to get to a funded University place. However whilst the pursuit of music was strong he needed to provide for his family, including his parents and siblings, and worked long and hard to keep a roof over their heads for many years.

The calling to pursue music played quietly in the background for a long while with occasional flirtations with other musicians in the Bristol scene keeping his passion going, until the responsibility of provider was no more and Nigel could answer the call.

A fan of John Prine, Mary Gauthier and Johnny Cash he noticed these artists develop and evolve their careers at later times in their lives, with Mary not starting her career until age 35. Nigel felt torn between an industry quick to dismiss musicians of a mature age starting their career versus the possibility of those who managed to make it happen.

So after successfully performing his songs live for a couple of years and making the aforementioned vehicular sale, in 2021 Nigel successfully released his debut album (aged 54) called “Hello Mystery”. Since then the passion has continued to flourish with the follow up album ‘Rhymes with Sounds’ continuing the love affair, with a rawer, rootsier Americana Folk Rock sound.

Nigel is a seasoned performer of energetic and amusing shows, he has performed in a wide variety of venues with some of the highlights being; Glastonbury Calling Festival, Bristol Balloon Fiesta, Tetbury Music Festival, Keynsham Music Festival, Bristol Folk Trail, Southern Sounds, UK Country Music Week and supporting American duo Raveis Kole on their UK Tour.

His music has also been featured on many radio shows, including live performances for BBC Radio, 365 Radio, Country Music UK, GFM, Frome FM, BCFM, Somer Valley Radio, BSR FM, SW20 Radio, KTCRFM, Swindon 105.5 and Bath Radio.
