WelcomeI am David Lowery singer songwriter and guitarist for the bands Camper Van Beethoven and Cracker. After 27 years i have decided it is time for a solo album. This is not the end of Cracker or Camper Van Beethoven. I will continue recording and playing with both bands. "The Palace Guards" will be released February 1st 2011 on Savoy/429 Records. (It's a real record label and you will be able to buy it in indie stores and of course on-line.) This page is for the music on that album as well as my own personal musings..
When i say Solo Record i should qualify this statement. This record was very much a group effort. Although many people played on this record, it is largely the work of the staff of Sound of Music Studios. In particular John Morand (engineer, producer, percussion, programming, drums), Alan Weatherhead (lead guitar, banjo, pedal steel. keyboards, engineer, producer) and Miguel Urbiztondo-Rodrigues (Drums and percussion). Without these key collaborators this album would not exist. There were many other notable guests who lent their efforts to this record, including Mark Linkous, Sal Maida, David Immergluck, Kristin Hott and Shannon Worrell.
Currently I am on the road supporting the new Cracker album "Berkeley to Bakersfield" so this site is not very active. You may visit us at www.crackersoul.com. Below is a song from the new Cracker Album
