Being a semi-finalist on Idol is a huge accomplishment but where does an artist go from there? For many, post-idol fame hasn’t been much of a reality. So how does an artist bounce back after all the fame and attention? For some, like the gifted Charly Lowry, you must continue to have faith in your abilities and be willing to start from scratch and grind your way back to the top. Being a successful artist/band in this business is no easy task. Not only do you need to be talented musically, you also need the motivation and mindset.

Today, Charly Lowry is the lead singer in the band Dark Water Rising, a band she helped form back in 2008. The band has certainly come a long way from their humble beginnings. “Humble” in this sense isn’t an understatement. The other members in the band basically picked up and learned how to play their chosen instruments as soon as the idea of forming a band became a reality. And just a few short years later they all now play multiple instruments and have become even more confident in their abilities as musicians. There is always more room to improve as a band. It’s what motivates you to become better as an artist. Dark Water Rising (Charly Lowry (lead singer/rhythm guitar), Aaron Locklear (keys/guitar/bass), Corey Locklear (lead guitar/bass), and Shay Jones (drums), continues to grow and amaze each time they perform. They are constantly developing their sound, song writing, and instrumentation. This is a band that possesses the talent, motivation and mindsets to be major players in a business oversaturated with wanna-be performers. Lyrically, Dark Water Rising explores all themes of life, whether it is love, heartbreak, sacrifice, celebration, despair, or pain; all the while expressing their sentiment on issues affecting Native American communities. Dark Water Rising coined the genre of their music as “Rocky Soul”, which is about as original as the songs that they create.

Following the success of their self titled debut, DWR is gearing up for February 12, 2013, ushering in the release of their upcoming sophomore album “Grace & Grit: Chapter 1″. “Dark Water Rising” has performed throughout the East Coast, has garnered considerable radio airplay, appeared on NPR’s”The Story with Dick Gordon” and “The State of Things”, and has earned a Native American Music Award for “Debut Duo or Group of the Year” (2010).
