Gigs and Tours Q&A With MiC LOWRY
tell us a bit about your background and how the band was formed?
were all born and raised in Liverpool and we all went through the same school
at some point so we have known each other for quite a while now. About 6 years
ago we all came together by chance in a vocal workshop that helps young people
gain confidence and train their voices. After realising we all enjoy singing we
decided we wanted to try singing together, so we started rehearsing as a band
about 3 times a week and the rest is history! Ha!
would you describe your music?
would describe our music as British commercial R&B but our live shows
always have a soulful acoustic kind of feel because since we started we always
based our songs and covers around the acoustic guitar and five vocals.
just released your new single ‘Oh Lord’, can you tell us a bit about the
Lord’ is our interpretation on Phil Collins ‘In The Air Tonight’ – it’s an
upbeat feel good record. We worked with a Swedish writing collective called
'The Family'. As soon as we heard it we loved it and we knew how we could
change things and make it our own straight away.
supported Justin Bieber on his European leg of his Purpose Tour last October
that included UK arena shows in Manchester, Birmingham, Sheffield, Glasgow and
6 sell out nights in London’s O2 Arena. Did you guys have fun?
had the time of our lives on the Purpose tour, not only did we get to travel
the whole of Europe but we also got to show thousands and thousands of people
our sound and who we are. We've gained a lot of new fans who support everything
we do and we also gained a lot of friends from the tour who we stay in contact
with whenever we're in America.
heading out on a UK tour in February playing across some of the UK’s major
cities. What can your fans expect from the dates?
we’re so excited to get back on the road and perform again, from this tour you
can expect a good mix of old material and also some new stuff, we've also put
some new covers together specially for the tour. Even though we have a band for
some dates the main focus is still the acoustic guitar and vocals.
the best thing about being on tour?
time we go on tour the venues get bigger and we see a lot of new faces and
that's what we love. Seeing everyone's reactions to certain songs, hearing
people sing along to our music and we also love feeling close to our fans so
it's nice to meet most of them as well.
are you biggest musical influences?
there is five of us we have a lot of musical influences but as a band our main
influences are obviously other bands such as Boyz 2 Men, 112, Jagged Edge etc
and we also love a lot of Motown artist such as Michael Jackson, Marvin Gaye
and Stevie Wonder.
from your UK headline tour, what does 2017 have in store for MiC LOWRY?
have actually just recently added some more dates to our tour, but these dates
will be in Europe and the USA. So this year has already started on a high for
us with lots more to come including new music being released soon…
you got any messages for your fans?
can't wait to see you guys at the shows and thank you so much for your constant
love and support. Hopefully this year will be an even bigger year than last x
