Preston Glasgow Lowe
This London-based trio’s music is a mash-up of relentless rhythmic energy, harmonic dystopia and virtuosic improvisations. Expanding the format of the guitar trio with intricate and unique compositions, they draw influence from an expansive array of styles, while maintaining a focused, original sound.
“Dazzling ideas and sophisticated technique.”
“Young heavy weights.”
“The trio thinking and acting as one produces a sound to behold.”
