First message to first mixtape: Witt Lowry’s First on SoundCloud story

Witt Lowry has always been a writer. Growing up, the Connecticut artist spent his time compiling original poems or memorable snippets of conversation in a notebook and taking as many writing courses as his high school offered. His name even has literary origins — the rapper, born Mark Richard. Jr, dubbed himself Witt Lowry after flipping through a dictionary and stumbling across the passage for the word “witty.” This passion for writing and language eventually led Lowry to quit his graphic design job in his early twenties and pursue a career in music.  

The rapper dropped his debut mixtape, Headphone Heroes, on SoundCloud in 2012 and soon attracted attention for his poignant lyrics and nuanced subject matter. After growing his audience with a series of stellar full releases and thoughtful music videos, his most recent album, I Could Not Plan This, easily skyrocketed to the top of the hip hop charts. With a hit album and nationwide tour under his belt, 2018 is gearing up to be Lowry’s biggest year yet. Wherever Lowry’s journey takes him, we’re proud of where it all started – right here, on SoundCloud.
