Dark Water Rising
Becoming a semi-finalist on the immensely popular singing competition American Idol is a huge triumph, but where does an artist go from there? For many, the idea of post-Idol fame has not become a reality. For some, like Charly Lowry, you must continue to have faith in your abilities and be willing to start from scratch and grind your way back to the top. Being a successful artist in this business is no easy task.
Being talented musically certainly helps, but you also need the steadfast motivation and a sharp mindset. Today, Charly Lowry is the lead singer of Dark Water Rising, a band she helped form in 2008. DWR has certainly come a long way from their humble beginnings. Humble in this sense is not an understatement. The other members in the band basically picked up and learned how to play their chosen instruments as soon as the idea of forming a band became a reality. Dark Water Rising (Charly Lowry (lead singer-rhythm guitar), Aaron Locklear (keys-guitar-bass), Corey Locklear (lead guitar), and Shay Jones (drums), Tony Murnahan (bass) continues to grow and amaze each time they perform.
Dark Water Rising explores all themes of life—love, heartbreak, sacrifice, celebration, despair, or pain—all while expressing their sentiment on issues affecting Native American communities. Dark Water Rising coined the genre of their music as – Rocky Soul, which is about as original as the songs that they create.
Dark Water Rising has performed throughout the East Coast, has garnered considerable radio airplay, appeared on NPRs The Story with Dick Gordon and The State of Things, and has earned a Native American Music Award for Debut Duo or Group of the Year(2010).
