The Lowest Pair announces Spring tour dates with Trampled By Turtles and more in support of their debut album, "36¢" - Out now on Team Love Records!

 The Lowest Pair (featuring K Records' Kendl Winter) are hitting the road in March with Trampled By Turtles and another run in April with The Dead Pigeons in support of their debut LP, 36¢!

Out now on Team Love Records, you can stream the album in its entirety at American Songwriter where they complimented the band on their "earnest, earthy songcraft."


Early love for The Lowest Pair's debut album:
"Kendl Winter and Palmer T. Lee write about living and dying the way you'd write about waiting for a cake to bake." Daytrotter
"If you’ve ever wanted to trade in city drudgery for a pastoral life, you’ll identify with The Lowest Pair." CMT Edge
"Say hello to the first great album of 2014." In Your Speakers
"She and Lee's banjos intertwine with ease, emoting softer than the instruments usually do. Despite their resonance and volume, the twin tracks allow Winter's Nicks-esque vocals to cut through the mix with devastating effect." The Bluegrass Situation
"Winter possesses a voice that is able to transmit tenderness and determination, the nuances of which come glazed with a faint layer of the abrasive; a vocal that feels like it’s run up against a few hard times and got through some of them by sheer force of will." Unrecorded
"The Northwest and Midwest meet together with the jangly strum of banjo heaven with Olympia's Kendl and Winter Minnesota's Palmer T. Lee who strum along with some rustic sounds of holistic, head held high and upward, and happy living. " IMPOSE
"Wondrous banjo duet…" SPIN

"Kendl Winter and Palmer T. Lee to explore the bottomless well of American folk music, with an emphasis on banjo, guitar and front-porch harmonies.

36¢ is The Lowest Pair’s debut record recorded months after Kendl Winter (Olympia, Washington)  and Palmer T. Lee (Minnesota) decided to form the primarily double banjo outfit.  Recorded and engineered by Dave Simonett (Trampled by Turtles) at Suburban Dad Studios, it’s the early pickin’s, sweet off the tree, a newly formed endeavor by two seasoned pros. The duo swap lead vocals throughout the album’s 11 tracks, combining Kendl’s banjo skills with Palmer’s midwestern croon.  Prior to this Kendl has released 3 full length albums under her name for K Records and Palmer has released two albums with his band Boys n’ the Barrels. Palmer has also performed with Drew Peterson and The Dead Pigeons.
36¢ is out on Team Love Records on January 14th, 2014
