This is the second in a series of albums that are autobiographical. This mostly covers the period 1989 to 1996. I do this not so much to tell my story but also tell the stories of others who have shared their lives with me. This is a limited edition of 1,000 CDs. Please do not make copies or upload to SoundCloud, YouTube, etc. Think small. Ubiquity is overrated.

Released Jan 1st 2021

Hi Everyone

Just wanted to let you know that I made a new album during the lockdown.  I am going to release it at midnight on New Year's Eve. You can buy the album at 

davidlowerymusic.com or https://davidlowery.bandcamp.com

In addition, I will live stream the album on Facebook starting at 11:15 PM Dec 31st ET.  Here is a link to the event.


The album is called Leaving Key Member Clause.  It is the second in a series of autobiographical recordings. This album covers the period roughly 1989-1996. This also coincides with my musical transition from Camper Van Beethoven to Cracker.  I recorded the album with the help of the "Georgia Crackers" i.e. Pistol, Bryan, and Coco. Also joining me on the album, Jeremy Lawton (Big Head Todd and the Monsters), Luke Moller, and Leith Fleming-Smith.  I really think you are gonna enjoy this.  

UPDATE: The CDs will not ship until the 11th of January but you will be provided with a download link in the meantime.

In 2019 I released "In The Shadow of the Bull" as a physical-only limited edition. Since a good deal of this record is about my father I'm finally releasing the digital version for father's day. It also includes a bonus track. You may (or may not) get a kick out of it. It's a little pseudo-sevillana I whipped up during quarantine with Velena (castanets, handclaps) and Luke Moller (Strings). "Everybody Get a F****** Day Job." Only on Bandcamp.
