Review Extract – “The guitar is nimble with its growlings, belting out riffs capable of searing paint from walls, then issuing delicate strumming designed to instil a heavenly dreamstate. Whether displaying intensity or delicacy, Lowe shows a remarkable mastery not only of the instrument but to the diverse emotional potential inherent in both sonic directions.”
