Jez’s 2nd novel is now available…
The story delves into the background of the circle of songwriters who came to be known as The Bards of the Tyne. Their work chronicled the life and times of Newcastle and the characters who lived and worked there, and many of the songs they wrote continue to be sung to this very day. But in “The Corly Croons”, a hidden mystery is discovered, a deep intrigue beneath the comic songs and gentle ballads that entertain the packed music-halls and penny-gaffs that were so popular around Tyneside at that time. The unravelling of that mystery is the story that Jez tells in the book.

The brand new studio album from songwriting supremos Steve Tilston and Jez Lowe.
Two of the UK acoustic/folk scene’s finest songwriters – Steve Tilston and Jez Lowe – put their heads together and ‘The Janus Game’ is the thought provoking result. A serendipitous meeting in the US amid their prolific individual touring schedules instigated a collaboration between two award wining songsmiths, consummate musicians, and personal pals, that blossomed into a joint UK tour filled with songs and music, chat and banter and intimate insights into their approach to their craft. A natural extension of the song-swapping and packed-house performances was to take the music into the recording studio.
6 original tracks from Jez Lowe that featured in the 2014 and 2016 theatre tours of The Thankful Village, a new comedy drama from Kate Bramley and Badapple Theatre On Your Doorstep.
