A double nomination in the 2015 BBC Folk Awards for best singer and best new song was a timely reminder of Jez Lowe's standing in the UK folk and acoustic music scene. Not only he is one of the busiest live performers in the country, but his songs are among the most widely sung by other performers, whether by long-established acts like Fairport Convention, The Dubliners and Bob Fox, or by the new breed of stars like The Unthanks, The Young Uns and The Duhks.
Singer/songwriter Jez is an enchanting performer with an engaging North-Eastern wit. His songs are mainly written in a traditional style, accompanied on guitar, cittern and harmonica. Jez was nominated for 2008 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards Singer of the Year. He has built an enviable reputation as a songwriter and performer in the world of acoustic sounds with more than a dozen albums and countless live performances around the world.
