SIMON LOTT QUARTET

MARCH 1, 2019

CHORUM HALL, 1024 EXECUTIVE PARK AVE. BATON ROUGE, LA 70806

Drummer & beyond, Simon Lott was born on January 6, 1982 and has been making music professionally for 21 years.  His career as a versatile drummer began in Louisiana at age 14 in Baton Rouge & New Orleans.  He completed an B.A. in English Literature in 2002.  At age 23, he moved to New York City after the destructive Hurricane Katrina & began touring internationally.  2 years later, he returned to the South and has been living in New Orleans since.  

He fashioned his first album of original music at age 18, an instrumental jazz recording called "In The Parking Lott of Swing."  Then at age 23 completed his second album of original music entitled "Things."  Things stepped into other facets of music: hip-hop, electronica, funk, rock, R&B, and included bits of vocals and a heavy amount of post-production and "cutting-&-pasting" of live recorded tracks mixed with composition and improvisation, highlighting Lott's skills as composer as well as producer.  The music was recorded in 2002 and was slowly edited over 3 years.  

At the age of 25, Simon began home recording and experimenting more with synthesizers and effects pedals.  At age 28, he created a home studio called THE EARSE in New Orleans where he cultivated two alteregos-- Context Killer and Diamond Kinkade
