A unique combination of rap and hip-hop collide to produce an ethereal vibe with a serious edge on Witt Lowry’s new album: Dreaming With Our Eyes Open. Reminiscent of early Eminem and Macklemore, Witt paints lyrical poems on a canvas of subtle acoustic and piano; drawing you in with a beat and keeping you there with a story. As the album progresses, the tone is guided by a backdrop shifting from club to piano, a creative choice guiding your focus from the sound to the message. A clear artistic perfectionist, Lowry has produced each song with clear sound, catchy beat and a personal touch that inspires reflection. Finding underground rap with (good) mainstream elements is a bit like hunting unicorns; If you’re in the mood for a fairytale, I suggest trying it out.
