For Original Rock Music and MK Music, this is where it all began. Lowerline. Hailing from New Orleans, LA, Lowerline became titled "The Hardest Working Band in New Orleans" by their peers. If it was a show, they'd play it. They didn't care. They came in 2nd for Sammy Hagar's Cabo Wabo Band Contest in 2003. The band showed a lot promise and was vastly creating a fan base outside of New Orleans. In 2004, they released the full length album "The Clearer I See" and began making headway in new markets in Arkansas, Mississippi, Texas and Alabama.


And then tragedy struck. Her name was Katrina. (Hurricane) Katrina put everything to a grinding halt. Nolan will never forget the phone he received from Drummer Jimmy Adams just days following the storm's landfall and the Lake Pontchartrain Levy breach. "Dude, it's over. Lowerline is done! Matt (Mysing) just saw CNN trolling down his street in a boat where they were touching the street sign." More than 6 Feet of flood water had gotten into Matt's apartment. And this was the end of Lowerline. For now....

Through the years, this tight knit group of friends stayed in touch as their lives veered in different paths. In 2015, and surprisingly with new music, Lowerline came out of the shadows for a 10 year "FuckYouVersary" of Hurricane Katrina at the Twist of Lime of Metairie, LA. Along with other local New Orleans bands who had met the same fate after the storm. Through the next few years of begging, pleading and mercilessly hounding on MK's part, Lowerline decided to go into studio. A new bass player in tow, new music in tow and a thirst for the stage show, Lowerline is prepped to swing for the fences with it's 3rd official studio release. This time an EP.  Lowerline has just signed a Worldwide Record Deal with RFL Records!

The new single "Heavy Waters" was released on May 14, 2021 on RFL. The lead off single and title track impacted radio June 1, 2021 as well. The EP released June 25, 2021. "Heavy Waters" the title track made it's way to on Loudwire's Spotify Playlist, Outburn Magazine, V13, Anti-Music, Metal Insider, reached #20 on the Billboard MRI Charts, #3 on the Foundations SMR Charts, got added to 25 Canadian Rock Radio Stations all over Canada and WON the "Best Music Video" Award of Merit with the IMDb Qualifying Movie Festival, the Vegas Movie Awards August 2021!
