Formerly of The Tequila Mockingbird Orchestra, Kurt Loewen's second solo record, Becker Lake, is a collection of folk and ambient rock songs about new love, healing, hope and change.
Kurt Loewen is a songwriter, producer and multi instrumentalist who has spent much of his career in music writing, performing and traveling with The Tequila Mockingbird Orchestra. Loewen's forthcoming record, Becker Lake, stays true to form lyrically and sonically to his 2019 Heavy & Low, but will be 100% self produced from his home studio. The inability to perform publicly during this unprecedented time has given him the opportunity and time to take a deep dive into the songwriting and recording processes. As a result 8 songs have emerged as a body of work representative of the time spent largely in solitude. The themes, however, convey that of hope, openheartedness, kindness, and optimism which, thematically and unto itself, is a departure from last year's Heavy & Low.
