:: LOWEN AND NAVARRO
www.lowenandnavarro.com

... For more than a decade, Eric Lowen and Dan Navarro have written, recorded and toured for a growing national audience. Their 5 CDs showcase self-penned songs of experience, colored by supple acoustic-based arrangements centered around their intertwined voices.

Songwriters of notable cachet, their works have been recorded by artists as diverse as Pat Benatar (the worldwide Top 5 hit "We Belong"), The Bangles, The Four Tops, Dave Edmunds, The Temptations and a host of others. In 1988, they began a weekly residency at The Breakaway in Venice, CA, creating a buzz that coincided with an emerging "Nu-Folk" scene in LA.

... In 1990, their debut, Walking On A Wire, was released by Chameleon Records to rave reviews. Produced by Jim Scott (BoDeans, Samples, Whiskeytown), the album built a radio base with the songs "Walking On A Wire" and "The Spell You're Under".

Three years later, Parachute-Mercury Records released Broken Moon with "All Is Quiet", "Constant As The Night" and "Just To See You". They followed in 1995 with the enigmatic Pendulum, where their sound was honed to a fine edge by lean arrangements and a close vocal presence.

...Signing with Intersound Records in 1997, they released Live Wire, a 1989 club performance that earned them their first press attention and two record deals. Their newest album, Scratch At The Door, was released in mid-1998. Self-produced, it addresses new subjects as their lives enter new phases.

...It is through their live shows that Lowen & Navarro have built their greatest reputation. Whether as a duo or with rhythm section backing, they always deliver dynamic, emotional, uplifting performances to fiercely loyal audiences.

:: MAIA & RANDY SHARP www.maiasharp.com | www.randysharp.ws

... Concord Records artist Maia Sharp, who has written with the likes of Carole King and Lisa Loeb, wrote the title cut to the current Dixie Chicks GRAMMY award winning album "Home" with her father Randy Sharp. After writing and recording in 2001 with Art Garfunkel for a collaborative project with him and a third person, Buddy Mondlock, their project "Everything Waits to Be Noticed" was signed by Blue Note/Capitol and was released in October of 2002. Maia has been touring extensively with Art as the opening act in support of her solo album, (co-produced by her father Randy), and as co-headliner in support of the Garfunkel/Sharp/Mondlock trio record.

... Songwriter/Artist/P roducer Randy Sharp, a past featured artist of "The Songwriters Studio", is a multi-platinum selling songwriter, who has written #1 hits for Restless Heart, Exile, and Clay Walker. Other hits include songs by Patty Loveless, Alabama and Glen Campbell and his songs can be heard on the soundtracks of "The Apostle" and "The Horse Whisperer".

:: DAN KIMPEL www.dankimpel.com
... Dan Kimpel, one of the media's foremost authorities on pop music and songwriters, contributes to a variety of print and electronic mediums, including LA's Music Connection. 14 million monthly passengers hear Kimpel's interviews with songwriters and recording artists on United Airlines flights. Author of the best-selling book, Networking in the Music Business, Dan has taught a course based on this text at Sir Paul McCartney's Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts since 1998 Dan has produced concerts and events with Sheryl Crow, Sting, Paul Simon, Joii Mitchell, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Quincy Jones, Tom Petty, Burt Bacharach, Kenneth Babyface Edmonds, Glen Ballard and Diane Warren.
