Biography

Lowfive is excited to bring their unique brand of rock and Americana to a stage (or brewery, restaurant or bar…) near you with the return of live music in 2021. The band leverages multi-part vocals, traditional rock instrumentation, and an occasional horn section to bring life to a wide variety of music. Lowfive writes music to suit their musical strengths and backgrounds, mixing influences from classic rock, 80’s pop, and modern hits. In many ways, Lowfive writes music like a folk band and plays it like a rock band – come see it for yourself!

 

Lowfive’s first EP, Moving On, was self-recorded and released in February 2019 and is available wherever you find digital music. The band is excited about new [professional] recording opportunities coming up in the future… stay tuned!

 

Lowfive began with college roommates Chip Bollendonk (vocals, guitar) and Burke Larsen (drums). They met Claire Benjamin (vocals, piano) and Ben Mow (lead guitar, trumpet) in engineering grad school at CU Boulder, and formally founded the band in Fall 2017. The band grew their fanbase through gigs around the breweries and coffeeshops of Boulder, and was eagerly anticipating a strong concert schedule in 2020. With the onset of COVID-19, their venues became driveways and front yards across the North Metro area, and they had the chance to bring their music to a whole new audience (and type of stage!). The band is excited to return to the stage in 2021, and invites you to join them in celebrating the return of live music.
