CD REVIEW: Michael Lowman "In My Own Words"

In My Own Words
This EP by talented new singer/songwriter Michael Lowman is a breath of fresh air. He can be compared to musicians such as David Gray, Damien Rice, and other newcomers like Joey Ryan and Alexi Murdoch. The mixture of guitar and piano makes for simple pop music with lyrics as the defining backbone. The instrumentation is not typical for pop rock music, as a bit of blues rock can be heard in songs like "Morning Shine." The album's title track is sure to become Lowman's defining musical moment. Michael Lowman is on his way, on the heels of this EP, to do great musical things in his career.
