With a Bachelor's Degree in Professional Music from Berklee College of Music, Lowvee Cole is a musician, author, and rookie chef. Lowvee has long considered herself to be a dreamer and a creator. Whether it be through her music, writing, or recipes, she is always telling a story. She has been making beats, telling tales, and vandalizing kitchens since Cindy Crawford’s mole got its first editorial feature. Years ago, Lowvee employed her fondness for historical romances and epic fantasies to pen the first of five installments in her YA fantasy series, Boundless Magick. Now, it seems, she can’t pry herself away from her keyboard without feeling she's left a bit of her soul behind.
When not composing and recording music, whipping up edible masterpieces, or penning the swarm of novel ideas buzzing around in her head, Lowvee enjoys leading praise worship services for local churches and glamping (glamour camping) with her husband and children.

Authors and Musicians Who Inspire Me
While I'm not a fan of her latest works, no one can deny her seven-part Harry Potter series is a force with which has yet to be reckoned in the history of YA literature. If you haven't yet read Harry Potter in full, you are seriously missing out! Incidentally, I'm sickeningly and irrevocably in love with Snape: the greasy, hook-nosed Potion's Master, turned Head Master, turned unsung hero.
I absolutely love the way Becca draws you into her world with the incredible depth of her imagery and smooth-talking bad boys. My favorite books from her are the Hush Hush Series, but I also enjoyed Black Ice and Dangerous Lies, even if her protagonists are a bit dense. I mean who would fall for a guy who admitted to wanting to murder you with a paring knife while you were cutting up taco fixings?
Before I die, I want to meet and sing with this woman, not on stage, but in a private music room with her at the baby grand piano. She moves me unlike any other being on this planet. From "1000 Oceans," to "A Sorta Fairytale," to "Little Earthquakes," and more. She's the only entertainer/artist/writer I've ever shelled out money to hoard copies of every single one of her creations, including concert bootlegs.
This indie-pop artist, who now goes by the name of AMES, has earned my utmost respect as an independent artist with her catchy tunes, the vulnerable sound of her voice, and her whimsical melodies. She's battled many a demon along the way. I think that's why her work really resonates with me. It's real, it's raw, and it leaves you frantically googling her for more. She stays in your head long after her last note fades away.
