Witt Lowry, Connecticut's sensational hip hop artist is bringing his signature sounds to the Gramercy Theater!
Witt Lowry (birth name Mark Laurence Richard. Jr) was born in Connecticut in 1991 and is a graphic designer and rapper. He began his musical journey after his friends encouraged him to write lyrics and being from Connecticut motivated him to also motivated him to keep at it. He said in an interview, "I have a really tight-knit group of friends who are constantly supporting and pushing me to move forward. They were the ones who originally pushed me to put my music out for the world...I also feel like being from Connecticut you have a lot more to prove because you are surrounded by such big name cities like Boston and New York City, so that keeps that fire burning to always keep pushing forward." His musical style is best described as a blend of alternative hip hop (a style that encompasses the wide range of hip hop styles that aren’t mainstream and draws from funk and rock, as well as jazz, soul, country, electronic, and even folk music) and underground rap (a label used to refer to rappers who are brazenly anti commercial and/or proudly independent, indifferent to the exposure promised by major label promotion and distribution). He's released his debut studio album (Dreaming with Our Eyes Open) in 2015.
