If you haven't come across EZIO before you are in for a treat. In their 26 year career, the band have made a habit of dabbling in any style of music that akes their fancy and their ninth studio album "Daylight Moon" is their most personal yet
What always sets EZIO apart is the connection between Lunedei and guitarist Booga. The frontman’s rich tenor and complex acoustic guitar work is complimented by Booga’s incessant lead guitar; regularly squeezing in an extra note that shouldn’t be possible, but somehow managing to work. Booga truly has a unique style, and it needs to be witnessed in the flesh.
To celebrate the release of "Daylight Moon", EZIO toured Germany throughout November and December 2016 and are back on the road again in the spring 2017 with dates in both Britain and Germany. Including Lowde Fest 2017 on the LF2 stage.
Fans can expect favourites from the new album and classics from Ezio’s
ever expanding repertoire.

SAM DEED is just 16, but already making a name for himself in the music scene as an up and coming singer/songwriter. Hailing from Bedfordshire, Sam has been playing guitar since the age of 6 and in his own words "it has since taken control of my life and everything in it."
Drawing inspiration from artists such as John Mayer, Andy Grammer and Hunter Hayes, his style is a really exciting blend of pop/jazz/and country. His own writing combines great observational lyrics with a genuine and original upbeat guitar style.
Currently working the live circuit around north london, Sam is definitely one to watch, and another great example of up-coming talent that Lowde Fest loves to find and support.
Come and see for yourself on 8th July on the Taylor Wimpey LF2 stage.
