Rock and roll for the corners of America that exist between New York and LA. It''s honest rock in the tradition of Springsteen and Billy Joel, filtered through a world of punk, pop and alt-country.

Details:
With a love of classic rock, Americana and country, LOWJACK is a rock band based out of the great and strange state of Pennsylvania. Lowjack is unpretentious, rowdy and loud; singing songs about breakups, breakdowns, and the hope and boredom that exist everywhere between New York and Los Angeles.
Formed late in August of 2006, award-winning singer/songwriter Dennis Fallon found himself happily without a band (the northeastern US touring juggernaut, KATSU). With a stockpile of songs and disgust for the area’s cover band and polished pop-rock scene, Fallon and company formed a motley assortment of musicians together from local hair bands, soul groups and grindcore bands to perform his own down-home, rootsy, pop-rock concoctions (formed out of members of the bands Solvus, Voodoo Bullet, Fatman Band). Lowjack was born, a loud monster of fate and timing.
With Fallon sounding like a punked-up Springsteen backed by a heavier version of the Counting Crows, LOWJACK in a live setting is a cross between Tom Petty, Social Distortion, and Credence Clearwater Revival drunk on cheap whiskey.
Like his own twisted, strung-out and heartbroken take on life, Fallon and company have created a band that is a reflection of the times and space they live in; coming from a world of dead-end jobs, alcohol and late-night parties, a place where young American dreams collide with a far from perfect reality. A band of hope and hangovers; LOWJACK is the world that exists in the cities, small towns and lonely highways of the Keystone State.
Resonating with Americans who miss their rock and roll performed by the “boys next door” and someone to sing songs for those who work 9 to 5 and wish for a life much better, LOWJACK is a return to real rock music; a road-tested “American Band”. What Skynrd is to Alabama, Springsteen and Bon Jovi to Jersey and Mellencamp to the Midwest, LOWJACK hopes to be to Pennsylvania.
