Kristi Lowe is a 25 year old singer/songwriter from Cape Town, South Africa, who, has had a passion for music from a very young age.
Kristi’s music career took off at the tender age of fifteen, when her first single, in collaboration with Goodluck, saw huge success due to its powerful message and the campaign behind it – a fight to save the life of her sister, Jenna Lowe.
‘After my sister passed, I took a break from writing and performing. I was only 17 and needed time to heal and process the loss and trauma we had been through as a family. For a long time I shut myself down from the world. It was only during lockdown when my healing had begun that I allowed myself to re-discover my passion for writing music. I then wrote my next single ‘Take Me Away’, which spoke to the pain of losing my sister'.
Since writing ‘Take Me Away’, Kristi has continued on to write and collaborate with artists and producers across South Africa. She continues to expand her discography, with each new release reflecting on aspects of her identity, her journey, and the message she wants to communicate to the world.
BEHIND THE MUSIC
Having come to terms with her loss and reignited her passion for writing, Kristi Lowe has
forged ahead with re-establishing herself as an artist who believes in the power of music.
“I have always seen music as an instrument for connection and communication, and as a result I often find myself writing about topics that I am really passionate about'.
Kristi Lowe never fails to take her listeners on an emotional journey, whether it be a poignant ballad about loss (Take Me Away); an upbeat pop single with a powerful message of empowering women (Not Here To Please You), or a provocative message about sexuality and identity (Girl Crush).
Her new release ‘This Moment’ is no different. A get-up-an-dance, catchy pop-rock love song with all the makings of a hit. The song captures the essence of how it feels to experience those first moments of falling in love... when you wish you could freeze time and stay in ‘this moment’ forever.
This rising pop star stands out from the crowd,
a musical soul whose genuine desire to make a difference to others is the central
motivation of what promises to be a long and successful career.
