CRACKER AND CAMPER VAN BEETHOVEN CO-FOUNDER
RELEASES DEBUT SOLO RECORD OUT FEB.
After years of helping steer the lauded and eclectic careers of both of his bands, Cracker and Camper Van Beethoven, co-founder and
frontman David Lowery has seen fit to present a
collection of songs recorded apart from those iconic indie & alternative rock entities. Stopping short of calling it a
solo record, Lowery has collaborated with a handful of trusted musical cohorts associated with his Richmond, VA-
based studio, Sound of Music - an inner circle that Lowery has relied on for over 17 years and who’ve been
instrumental in helping create the sounds heard on this album as well as past projects.

David recorded and produced The Palace Guards in conjunction with John Morand and
Alan Weatherhead. Key players include Miguel Urbiztondo on drums, David
Immergluck on guitars and bass, Craig Harmon played organs and Ferd Moyse on upright
bass and fiddle. Special guest appearances include Cracker mates Sal Maida and Johnny
Hickman, as well as the late Mark Linkous (Sparklehorse) who played keyboards on “Big Life.” The Palace Guards will be
available everywhere February 1, 2011 through 429 Records.
