Singer/songwriter Lisa Lowell will be the featured guest on the next episode of What’s Up on E Street?, the online series presented by the Bruce Springsteen Archives and Center for American Music at Monmouth University. The episode goes live on Tuesday, March 23 at 10 a.m., and can be accessed on the Bruce Springsteen Archives & Center for American Music website or via the Springsteen Archives’ Facebook page.
Music historian Bob Santelli interviews Lowell who has appeared on and off in live performances with Springsteen since 1990. She has sung on several of Springsteen’s albums, including “Lucky Town,” “The Ghost of Tom Joad,” “Devils and Dust,” and “Wrecking Ball.” She released a solo album, “Beautiful Behavior,” in 2011. Lowell has appeared on stage with many others, including Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes and Patti Scialfa.
“Patti Scialfa, Soozie Tyrell, and Lisa Lowell are the first ladies of Jersey Shore rock & roll,” said Santelli. “Lisa’s story is especially interesting, as she’s led such an incredible music life.”
“I was able to draw from both the Jersey Shore and New York City for my musical evolution,” recalled Lowell. “I saw the opportunity to make a living and explore the many genres I loved both as a backup singer and lead singer, and carved a career for myself. It’s been a fun ride.”
What’s Up on E Street? is a series that highlights the individual members of the band and how they are dealing with the global COVID-19 pandemic. Previous interviews include other E Street Band members Nils Lofgren, Roy Bittan, Max Weinberg, Garry Tallent, and Steven VanZandt, as well as longtime Springsteen videographer and movie producer Thom Zimny and longtime Springsteen manager and co-producer Jon Landau.
