John Lowery started his career as a singer-songwriter in Portland, Oregon back in the mid-nineties with his first band Hatful of Rain which he formed with Dramarama guitarist Mark Englert. At one time their drummer was Courtney Taylor-Taylor from The Dandy Warhols. His first album with Hatful of Rain got national distribution and radio play and received stellar reviews. Since 2000 John has released all solo albums - Fancy Car, I'm Going Home, and most recently Epiphany which is available for sale on I-Tunes . John has played with some pretty big players over the years including Jeff Linsky (Jazz Virtuoso), John Smith (Grammy Award Producer from Nu Shooz), and Tony Snow (Drummer from Dramarama) to name a few. He currently resides in Oceanside, CA and continues to play shows as a solo artist in his own backyard in San Diego, LA, and Orange County frequently. John plays mainly acoustic melodies with some electric guitar and backbeats with a laid-back feel. Some of his songs sound folksy and some sound rockish, with a little bit of blues & country from time to time. He performs regularly and not only performs songs that he has written, but also songs from such artists as Tom Petty, The Eagles, Rob Thomas, Jimmy Buffet, Rod Stewart, The Beatles, Jack Johnson, and many more. John is also available as a duo with another guitar player or piano player.
