Three-time San Diego Music Award winner Low Volts is giving the music world a much needed shock to the heart with his fuzzed-out, one-man, dirty blues-rock n’ roll performances. Armed with only a gritty old slide-guitar, thunderous kick drum laden with tambourines and dark, howling vocals, Low Volts creates a thick and heavy sound equivalent to the force of a four-piece band. Great-grandson of a traveling gospel singer who was framed for murder and sentenced to the ELECTRIC CHAIR, Low Volts would not exist today if it wasn’t for a key witness that helped pardon his distant kin in the final hours of his uncertain fate. Doc wrote and published a book about his story titled 'Up From The Depths' "The Miracle that saved me from the electric chair". This is the story that inspired the stage moniker 'LOW VOLTS'.
Combining a timeless mixture of original dark and dirty blues, rock and soul, Low Volts encompasses the American sound in a raw and extremely unique way. Think ‘1955 meets 2055.’ ‘Early Elvis meets Evel Knievel.’ Winner of ‘Best New Artist’ & ‘Best Blues Album’ in 2011, nominated for ‘Song of the Year’ & ‘Best Blues’ in 2012 and winner of ‘Best Blues Album’ yet again in 2013 at the SDMA’s has not only proven that Low Volts can consistently write and perform great original music, but that Low Volts is HERE TO STAY. Early 2016 saw a six week national tour directly supporting Brian Setzer (Stray Cats) including a sold out show at The Ryman. Partnerships were formed with Gretsch Guitars, Whirlwind Cables, D’Addario Strings and Stone Brewing Co and an exclusive song was written for the 15th Century Scotland based CW show REIGN. The future shows no signs of slowing down with constant touring, writing and the recording of the third and most ambitious Low Volts album to date in Nashville, Tennessee where he currently resides.
