Power, Ferocity, strength and beauty… These are some of the words that come to mind when you witness and hear this emerging powerhouse of music for the first time. Delivering a sound that shapes a mixture of Rock, Pop, Punk influences while supporting lead singer Lauren Harlow’s powerful and dynamic vocal prowess, you cannot help but make comparisons to Pat Benatar, Debbie Harry, Joan Jett and Pink. Relatively new to the musical world, Harlow has been tearing up each and every stage that presents itself to them as they throw down the flag that says there is a new player in the game. Formed in late 2013, every member of Harlow hails from the greater Detroit area and alongside Lauren, Joe Allen, Kevin Razlog and Kelly Weaver have spent years making a name for themselves in other groups in the local Detroit scene. As Harlow came together they knew that something special was going on and they wasted no time to get the momentum rolling. Acclaimed as a Super Group of local talent by some, these four have shrugged off this label and have spent most of 2014 not only representing Detroit but spreading out to the Midwest and venturing new areas in the east of the US to larger and larger crowds. With the recent release of a self-titled EP and the pending release of their first full length Album “Shattered” the band is gearing up for more shows across the US and showing everyone who and what they are made of. Harlow is the next Bombshell on modern music and strives to make music that will connect with all ages, creeds and provide people with music to be a fan of again.
Lauren – Lead Vocals:
Lauren Weaver is the epitome of Sexy and rock and roll. She is fierce in her ways, her delivery of a song and she cannot help but bring you in to the web that she is weaving while on stage. Coming from a musical family, Lauren developed her ear, her voice and a passion for music early in her development as a musician. Don’t let being a vocalist fool you, her voice is her instrument and she knows how to use it. You can find Lauren’s work with Broke and Maybe Whitney as well.
Joe – Guitar and vox:
Joe Allen brings a passion for music unlike that of many and has honed his craft to become a highly recognized and sought after player. Not only is he an extremely gifted player in his own right, he has an ear that can be compared to a producer in the making. Throw in the fact he can take a lead vocal and add to harmonies than you have a triple threat. In all Joe can craft a song, play it live and drive the women crazy with his natural sex appeal. You can find Joe’s work with his bands Avarice, Bat on fire and the defunct Dear Pilot.
Kelly – Bass Guitar and vox:
If you like a heavy groove, with a fat bottom to a song and a thunderous attack than you will like what Kelly Weaver is laying down for you. The elder statesman of the band, Kelly is a seasoned vet who has had some success in his career and looking to make it back out again. Bringing a powerful voice to match his powerful presence he can take a lead as well and add another layer of harmony to any song. You can find Kelly’s work with bands such as Black Collar Manifesto, KRONiS, Highwater, .12 Gauge Persuasion and more.
Kevin – Drums:
Kevin Razlog is one of the most relentless drummers you will ever find. His drive for music is only matched by his love for hitting skins and locking a song together. His style is crazy, precise and always challenging the norm allowing for Harlow to play any style that we choose to. You can hear Kevin’s work with bands such as Shudder and Avarice.
