Biographical Sketch

Songwriter-producer Jerè Lowe has worked as a music professional for more than four decades, delivering theme music you can recognize from ESPN, CBS, ABC and NBC Sports, as well as everything else from the Travel Channel to Tom and Jerry cartoons. In 1975 he established Lowe Company (LOCO) Sounds in Lubbock, Texas.

Lowe served as artist manager for pianist-composer Doug Smith. He operated Chaparral Enterainment to promote Jack Houston's ImagineLand, a Western-themed, live-action-puppet television production for children beginning in 1994, also handling musical arrangements and production. Lowe still performs as a singer-songwriter in addition to hosting performances to benefit students in the Lubbock Independent Scvhool District.
