After ten years in the instrumental ensemble Balmorhea, RG Lowe is releasing his first solo LP, Slow Time. The record, while incorporating elements from pop and rock, looks back on the warmth and spiritual ecstasy of early R&B through the disjunctive lens of contemporary life. Lowe, who plays keys, guitar, and provides the vocals on Slow Time, wrote and arranged about forty songs from 2014 to 2015 at his studio in Austin, TX, where he resides.  Boiled down to 10 and recorded in Philadelphia, the resulting tracks reflect a transitional period in the artist's life as he discovered a new musical language and vocabulary.

What is perhaps most shocking about Slow Time is that Lowe’s voice, which he eschewed for eight years in his work with Balmorhea, is the central star of this project. It’s hard to believe this is the first time we’re hearing it.
