(Low-ree) was born in the Welsh market town of Haverfordwest in Pembrokeshire.
Apart from a short absence spent studying for a degree in Newcastle and some
time travelling, her home remains in Wales.
With her partner and music associate Lee Mason she lives in Newport, Pemborkeshire.
A musical child Lowri started singing lessons at the age of seven which in turn led to her becoming a member of the choir at Newport Primary School. The choir won the Eisteddfod Yr Urdd (Youth Eisteddfod) a national music competition culminating with an appearance at the Albert Hall in London. During her junior school years Lowri was also receiving piano lessons. At the age of eight she took her first tentative steps into music composition.
Her association with choirs and music in general continued into her teens at Preseli School in Crymych in Pembrokeshire playing the lead in Annie and competing in numerous Eisteddfods both at local and national level as a member of the school choir. Alongside her contribution to the school choirs success Lowri came second in the solo section and third in the folk singing sections of the Eisteddfod Yr Urdd. Proving that she could perform as a member of a group and stand on her own as a solo performer: a sign of things to come!
At the age
of 15 Lowri performed in the school group Criws which won the band
section of the Eisteddfod Yr Urdd for two consecutive years. During her time
with Criws she starting writing songs; it was with one of Lowris own
compositions that the group won S4C TVs Best Band in Walesunder eighteen
competition. Their prize was the opportunity to record a three track demo at
Fflach Studios in Cardigan.
Lowri left Wales in 1997 for Newcastle to obtain a degree in popular, commercial and jazz music. In her second year in Newcastle she formed a five piece female group called Stella. The band existed for four years releasing two E.P's and winning a place to play at Leeds Festival. Stella with a final line up that included two males disbanded in 2002 and Lowri having finished her studies went travelling throughout South America with her sister for a time before returning to live in Wales.
Back home in
Pembrokeshire she picked up her music again playing locally and releasing an
E.P entitled Any Other Day recorded originally with former Stella guitarist
Howard Hedger whilst she was living in Newcastle. The C.D. was sold
locally in Wales bringing Lowri once more to the attention of musician and
record producer Wyn Jones of Fflach Studios. Wyn had seen her play previously
at Fflach Studios when her school band Criws won the SC4 Television Best
Wyn offered Lowri some additional studio time and thus began the start of her relationship proper with Fflach Studios; later in her career she would join their record label.
