The Lowest Pair features the duel banjo picking of Kendl Winter and Palmer T. Lee. Draped in Kendl’s high lonesome harmonies and Palmer’s Midwest croon, their debut release, 36 cents, (Team Love Records) was hailed by In Your Speakers as “the first great release of 2014.” On February 24th, 2015, Team Love released their sophomore album, The Sacred Heart Sessions.

Arkansas-born and now homesteading in Olympia, Washington; Kendl Winter sprouts alfalfa beans in mason jars in the back of the tour van, and spreads her songs across the country… Johnny Appleseed-style. Kendl brings to The Lowest Pair her wonderfully weaving poetry of song, old and new, and a voice somewhere between Gillian Welch and Iris DeMent, with a little Olympia twist. Palmer T. Lee, who hails from Minneapolis, was nineteen years old when he inherited a couple of banjos and discovered he could reassemble them into his dream instrument. Former front man for the much loved, high energy bluegrass band The Boys n’ the Barrels, Palmer’s songs are distilled into the warm sweet sounds of his percussive wordplay, and the melodic interludes of his own unique style played on a pieced together banjo.

“With their bare-bones instrumentation and country-inspired, heartstring-tugging narrative, The Lowest Pair might be one of the best under-the-radar Americana duos today.” –Paste Magazine

“World-class banjo riffs, timeless folk song influences, and haunting vocals” –KEXP, The Current
