About Me

Lowash, a.k.a., Patty Low Wash, is a musician from Mobile, AL. Growing up he always had an ear for music. He could pick up most instruments and eventually make a worthy sound or two come from it. His Mother showed him rhythm by dancing to her favorite songs and snapping to the beat. It is an argument whether rhythm or "perfect pitch" comes from learning at a young age, or whether someone is simply born with it or without it. Drums seem to give Lowash the most satisfaction while playing; the guitar comes in a close second. Lowash started making Chiptunes in 2009 on a site called 8Bit Collective. This was the beginning. There he learned many techniques for sound engineering through trial and error, and cruising the forums of 8bc. FL Studio was his poison of choice, but he takes full advantage of any platform he can improve his music with. Such as his LSDJ GameBoy cartridge.

Listening To Right Now

Too many different artists to name. Mostly underground unsigned talented people on Soundcloud. Riggy Lynn is my protege and has produced several songs... He saw me writing on FL Studio one day, bought it nearly the next, and has been improving since he was as young as 15. Riggy is now 20 and has improved 10-fold. I am very proud of him.

My Music Sounds Like

Aphex Twin

My music spans many attitudes, speeds, and genres. Not on purpose, but a lot of my music ends up being minor key.

In My Other Life I ...

I graduated college in 2018 with an Anthropology Degree and a minor in Geographic Information Systems and Technology. I have been doing Archaeology off and on since 2016. Cultural Resource Management. It's not as fancy as it sounds... I dig holes, when it comes down to it. My dream is to make a living producing music, and sound kits.
