5 Indie Artists You Should Hear – Lady Low

Lady Low is a rock quintet comprised of Jimmy Sweet (vocals, guitar), Rachel Maxann (vocals, synth), Eden Lee (vocals, drums), Kaitlin Wolfberg (violin) and Mia Maria Siler (viola).

Lady Low is not the first musical expedition for these romance rock pioneers. A talented multi-instrumentalist, Sweet has been rocking for years, starting out with legendary San Francisco rock band, The Richmond Sluts. As the founding member of Lady Low, Jimmy writes most of the band’s ballads, drawing from past romances and future hopes. Donning a style reminiscent of Marlon Brando meets David Bowie, he adds a masculine touch and growling baritone to the sultry tones of Lady Low.

Maxann formed her first band in high school and continued to grow as a musician, joining several other bands, in college including an EDM project, Oracles, and a funk/jam band called Elemental Groove Theory. After college, Maxann moved to New Orleans where she frequently played Bourbon and Frenchmen streets and also released her first solo record, “Cotton Tree.”

Leee has appeared in regional commercials throughout the midwest, but her heart has always been in music. She plays the piano, viola, and drums and has written arrangements and entire songs for many of the groups she’s had the chance to be a part of. Even with all that, her main instrument is her voice. While studying vocal performance at Ohio University, Lee recorded and performed with The First Street Heat, a nine-piece funk group. She has also been featured in the Columbus-based band, SassafraZ, and Tempo Tantrums, a female a cappella group.

Wolfberg, who composes the band’s arrangements, has worked with indie legends The Bats and The DB’s, and has played with heavy hitters such as Dweezil Zappa and Ruthann Friedman. She regularly performs in LA with Seasons and Rough Church. Siler is well versed in the art of taking an audience’s breath away, with a background in diverse art forms from aerial silk acrobatics to roller derby. After earning a degree in classical violin at Humboldt State University, Mia has gone on to play with singer-songwriter Rozzi Crane and contribute to the Faerie Archives with High Priestess Productions.

Lady Low has been building a loyal following in L.A. and are gaining fans around the world. According to Adam Morgan from Surviving the Golden Age, “It’s hard to say you don’t love the new Lady Low.”
