Fresh off their appearance at The 2017 Chicago Jazz Festival, LowDown maintains a constant performing and touring schedule throughout North America.They are releasing their self-produced full length studio album, “LowDown Breaks,” that combines the hip hop sound with multiple world music and jazz styles.
