Lowry’s project is filled with a signature rock sound, “Blending the driving rock influence of Foo Fighters and Jimmy Eat World with the songwriting of Elton John, Queen, and Ben Folds, Lowry has positioned himself to turn a lot of heads on this release. There’s an exciting mix of new, yet somehow familiar songs throughout the journey of an album that isn’t afraid to shake things up. From soaring lead guitars to southern rock breakdowns to piano pop songs you can’t get out of your head, it’s hard to know what’s coming next, but you know that you can’t stop listening.” This album is “an emotional and musical journey filled with hope, confusion, fun, laughter, existential dread, and self-discovery.”

“I want to bring a modern sound to that old school rock and roll vibe we saw in the 70s and 80s,” Lowry says. “Big choruses, huge guitar solos and people just having a good time. We need that now more than ever.” He recently dropped the music videos for “All My Friends Are Selling Out” and “Coming For You”, which certainly exemplify that.

Flamingo County is a state of mind,” he says. “That’s the realization that I found myself having as I was not just writing an album, but becoming the person that I was always going to become … I was asking myself very honest questions and breaking everything down to the core of me. Who I am, what I love, what makes me happy, what I really believe. Not because someone told me, but because it’s what I wanted and who I really am. I just wrote music because it was fun and what I loved.” Lowry says the album is “truly a picture of me trying to embrace who I finally know I am, and the journey of what that looks like, during those few years in my life.  As well as realizing that all I have to do is embrace that state of mind, and I can be in Flamingo County no matter where I am.”
