Lowen — PICS By: Jennifer Phang 1 of 6 Lowen In The Studio Born Emily Kopp, Lowen released her debut EP, Only In My Dreams in October 2019 – and immediately established her as a powerful songwriter, one who feels best when singing about her “lived-in” life. After struggling to find a foothold in the music industry, Lowen and her partner sold their possessions to travel across the world. Doing odd jobs for money and lodging, the couple lived across the globe and in doing so, Lowen found herself in both her music and in the mirror. Upon returning home to the States, she began writing what would be the debut ep. Only In My Dreams includes the title track, about connecting with loved ones who passed on. “Morning, Mourning,” the lead single, is based on the true experience of Lowen falling in love with the woman who would be her life – while she, Lowen, was involved with her childhood sweetheart. Such honesty is the “tone” she wanted to set as a songwriter, and one that will be with her in all of her music October 24, 2019, 3:59PM 2 of 6 Lowen In The Studio SAMCSTREET “I’m constantly writing,” she told HollywoodLife. “My studio’s at my house. So yeah, I’m in a place where I’m sort of funneling life as it’s happening and totally immersing myself in being an artist. That is, I’m not sitting down everyday at the same time to be like, ‘Let’s write a song.’ If I wake up at four in the morning and I feel like I need to express something, then I’m going to go downstairs and work that idea out.” October 24, 2019, 3:59PM 3 of 6 Lowen Sings “I’m in a constant place right now, which I’m so excited,” she tells HollywoodLife. “I can feel free of saying yes to all of the ideas that are coming. That’s the idea just to continue writing as much as I can. Some of that to be out is a lot of moving parts and things in the works, but all I’m doing right now is focusing on writing and writing, writing.” October 24, 2019, 3:59PM 4 of 6 Lowen Records “My first instrument was guitar and then drums,” she tells HollywoodLife. “I played drums in bands growing up and in school. Once I discovered the guitar, then I discovered that I loved singing, and it was never like an active decision. It just was. I sang, and I think I just assumed other people could be like, did that to or other people had things also that they did.” October 24, 2019, 3:59PM 5 of 6 Lowen Rocks “I’ve gotten into production over the last several years,” she tells HollywoodLife, “and having played music before this and having toured and played shows and gigging and bars, this was just the kind of style I gravitate. I sort of landed on this through all of that.” October 24, 2019, 3:59PM 6 of 6 Lowen Contemplates Life “I need to go live life to download it in order to have something to write about,” she tells HollywoodLife. “The connection to so many people that I came away from this trip knowing, it woke me up. It woke me up from sleepwalking. You know what I mean? I live very intentionally now. I think about how I have self check-in and I make sure that every single day I’m still doing things for the right reason and as are a lot of the lessons I brought back with me from that.” October 24, 2019, 3:59PM Click to Subscribe to Get Our Free HollywoodLife Daily Newsletter to get the hottest celeb news.
