2011 San Diego Music Award winner for 'Best New Artist' and 'Best Blues Album', LOW VOLTS is giving the music world a much needed shock to the heart. Often referring to himself as ‘us’ and ‘we’ at live shows, this one-man rock n’ roller provides a wild performance like none other. With a gritty old slide-guitar, thunderous kick drum laden with tambourines, and dark, howling vocals, LOW VOLTS creates a thick and heavy sound equivalant to a five piece band. Combining a timeless mixture of rock, blues and soul, LOW VOLTS has managed to encompass the American sound in a raw and extremely unique way.
Think ‘1955 meets 2055.’ ‘Early Elvis meets Evel Knievel.’
The debut record, ‘TWIST SHAKE GRIND BREAK’ was recorded live at White Horse Recorders November 21st, 2010 on a full BLUE MOON by reknowned producer/engineer Mike Butler. The outcome has completely exceeded everyones expectations and stays true to the sound & experience of an authentic LOW VOLTS live rock n’ roll performance.
The song 'Blame It On The Breakup‘ was recently placed on Showtime's hit TV show 'WEEDS' (Season 8, Episode 3) and has been nominated for 'Song of the Year' by the San Diego Music Awards. 'I Cried My Guts Out’ and ‘The Richest Poor Man’ have seen extensive airplay on Southern California’s radio stations 91X & FM94.9
LOW VOLTS has shared stages all over California, Nashville and Austin TX with:
THE BLACK LIPS, COLD WAR KIDS, HANNI EL KHATIB, BAND OF SKULLS, THE GREENHORNES, LUCERO, THE JIM JONES REVUE, DAN SARTAIN, SOUTHERN CULTURE ON THE SKIDS, DAVE ALVIN and HACIENDA to name a few.
Heavy touring is in the stars for this one-man-act and LOW VOLTS is ready to support a larger, national act anywhere in the world.
