Marcus Lowry is a singer-songwriter, guitarist and producer based in Montreal. Since earning his Bachelor’s degree in jazz performance from the University of Montreal in 2017, Marcus has worked with a wide array of Canadian and international jazz, folk and pop artists, such as Belle Grand Fille, Diane Tell, Alex Le Blanc, Aaron Dolman, Marthe Halvorsen and many more.
The title track of Lowry’s debut album, “Time, Time, Time,” uses evocations of a withering autumn to embody the album’s overarching theme of grappling with the inevitability of change. The song is reminiscent of artists like Nick Drake and Daniel Rossen, and exemplifies Marcus’ unique style of impressionistic folk that cross-pollinates the singer-songwriter tradition with strings, woodwinds, layers of effects and field recordings.
Time, Time, Time, the debut album from Lowry, is a collection of nine original songs that unfold like pages of a book, to reveal stories that speak to loss, unfulfilled dreams and the inevitable passage of time. In Lowry’s world of nautical dreamscapes and pastoral fables, the North-American folk tradition is underscored with the richness of chamber music, hints of impressionism and a touch of the avant-garde—all anchored by his vocals and acoustic guitar.
