Biography

Providence, Rhode Island, United States (2006 – present)

The Low Anthem are a quintet from Providence, Rhode Island, United States. They formed in 2006 and consist of multi-instrumentalists Ben Miller, Jeff Prystowsky, Jocie Adams, Mike Irwin and Tyler Osbourne. The band has released four albums: “The Low Anthem” (2006), “What the Crow Brings” (2007), “Oh My God, Charlie Darwin” (2009) and “Smart Flesh” (2011).

Ben Knox Miller and Jeffrey Prystowsky met while DJing an overnight jazz show on a Brown University radio station, WBRU. They became friends and teammates for a local wood-bat baseball team called the Providence Grays. Miller and Prystowsky played in various ensembles together ranging from classical and jazz to electronica, and the Low Anthem was formed in 2006. In the fall of 2006, Dan Lefkowitz, a bluesman from Strasburg, Virginia, joined the band and contributed to its evolving brand of songwriting with his song “This God Damn House.” Early in 2007, Lefkowitz left the band to pursue simple living in a yurt in Arkansas. The band became a trio again in late 2007 with the addition of classical composer and clarinetist Jocie Adams, a fellow student and former NASA employee, who joined the band after a late-night recording session for the band’s album What The Crow Brings. She appears on vocals and clarinet on the album’s closing track, “Coal Mountain Lullaby.”
