What a week for Oldham singer-songwriter, Seb Lowe. After being confirmed for the Leftfield Stage at Glastonbury next month, he is now gearing up to release his latest mini-album ahead of his headline show at Gorilla, Manchester, on Saturday (7th May)!
The breakout star, who has attracted over a quarter of a million fans on TikTok, became popular on the back of politically-charged, honest lyricism, following his debut EP release, “Half Decent” in 2021. “The Other Half” has been produced by the prolific James Skelly and features six brand new tracks.
Speaking about today’s release, Seb says: “The Other Half is largely an amalgamation of my own thoughts. It sort of dots about the place with different ideas about different things. This ranges from something close to spoken word acoustic poetry – trying hopelessly to tackle ideas around conspiracy theories and political disillusionment – to the more built-up pieces, the stuff I would even call ‘songs’. ‘Upper Class’ and ‘Rat Sh*t’ are still quite grounded in my usual patter about how broken the world is, but my recent single ‘There She Stood’ is almost a break from that, being a song, which is just about a boy and a girl.”
After selling out Night & Day Cafe recently, the attention will soon turn to the live shows post release. All of the currently confirmed UK live dates for Seb Lowe, including his first major festival appearances, are as follows…
