Kings of Lowertown
The Kings of Lowertown have a singular affinity for the constellation of small towns that are scattered along the Ottawa Valley’s Highway 17 corridor. Their new EP Missouri Lowsider is the band’s latest endeavour to capture the essence and spirit of the area through their signature backwoods blues sound, a little more rustic than bucolic. Mike Mackey, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and band founder, describes The Kings of Lowertown’s approach as “Renfrew County rural blues”, a form that “mixes blues elements with characteristics of country and folk, filtered through my experience.”
