The Dirty Low Down

It was the mutual love of music that brought together displaced Californians Quinn Chavez (lead guitar) and Gabe Daley (drums) in the Spring of 2015.
Following a few surprisingly decent jam sessions in a friend of a friend’s parent’s garage loft, the duo resolved to name their concept The Dirty Low Down. After playing through unstructured riffs in a hot garage, Carlo Swepson (rhythm guitar) joined the outfit. Meeting up on the weekends over the course of several months, the three had fleshed out the barebones of a handful of songs. They then began seeking out other collaborators. From the depths of social media wanted ads, Quinten Whalen (bass) and Jessica Dailey (vocals) filled the remaining and crucial roles in Fall of 2017.
With their alchemic passion and taste in music, it didn’t take long for everyone to notice the chemistry. The vibe was there for something great, something real. While reflecting on the disappointments of previous projects and the potential success of a shared vision, The Dirty Low Down set out to do things right. The guitar work is nestled between grimey and crisp. The bass lines tether the groove, cementing the sometimes heavy, yet progressive drums. The vocals heighten every song, melodies coalesce alongside refreshing, yet unreserved lyricism.
For now, The Dirty Low Down is focused on developing their sound and finding a place in the evolving Charlotte music scene. Be on the lookout for an EP and live dates in the near future.
