Low Society is the result of the intense collaboration between two disciples of the blues, Miss Mandy Lemons and Sturgis Nikides. Mandy sings the blues with an astonishing powerhouse voice which mixes southern fried soul and northern attitude. You will be astonished to hear so much power coming out of such a small figure, and you can clearly hear the influences of Koko Taylor, Etta James, Big Maybelle, and of course Janis Joplin. Big shoes to fill, indeed. Singer/songwriter/guitarist Sturgis Nikides, whose credits include a stint with Velvet Underground legend John Cale, has been playing the blues since the age of 10. His debut solo CD 'Man Of Steel' received worldwide critical acclaim. Low Society's songs are a mixture of blues, Americana and old school soul music, with lyrics that invoke Mandy's hard scrabble Texas origins. Their exciting debut CD, 'Low Society - High Time' includes standout tracks like 'Dead Mans Shoes', 'Long Black Limousine' and Mandy's soul stirring, soon to be a classic, 'Three Time Loser'. Low Society is on a mission to reinvigorate the ears of blues lovers the world over.
