Bio

Butch Lowery of The Lowery Group of Atlanta (publishers/producers behind the Atlanta Rhythm Section and Southern Tracks Studio) speaks highly of their newly-signed group: “You will hear rich harmonies that are being compared to the famous Forester Sisters and Andrews Sisters, with a performance catalog that seems to be more influenced by such legendary bands as the Eagles and Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. Their talented band is a “who’s who” of some of Atlanta’s finest studio musicians”

“The Harringtons are one slap-bass away from the Opry.” “This is what it sounds like in heaven.” These comments were overheard recently after The Harringtons performed at Doak Turner’s intimate “Third Sunday” gathering for songwriters in Nashville

The timing of the debut of this family band is perfect because it honors the Lowery Group which has always exemplified the close-knit and successful experience of a family music industry business. The late Bill Lowery, one of the first two initial inductees into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame (along with Ray Charles), founded the Lowery Group in the 1950’s. Butch Lowery, owner of the Lowery Group and son of Bill Lowery, praises The Harringtons as having developed “a family harmony as strong as the Andrews Sisters from a catalog of diverse songs as solid as a Carly Simon or Carole King.” He adds, “I believe the Harringtons have the capacity to attract all ages and fill the stadiums with the same fan base that enjoyed the Judds.” Both the legendary Lowery Group office and Southern Tracks Studio are still based in Atlanta after five decades of continual success in the music industry. The Lowery Group produced and published some of the world’s most famous writers and bands, including Joe South, Billy Joe Royal, and the Atlanta Rhythm Section.

As lead singer-songwriter-teacher-mother with a vast catalog of original songs and five published CDs, Cindy Lou Harrington is an award-winning community volunteer as well as an award-winning songwriter. BMI (among others in Nashville) and the Lowery Group (Atlanta) are leading the Harrington family through the music industry channels necessary to become the newest musical family/protégé out of the Southeast. Bruce Burch, Vice President of Sho-Bud Music and an executive with EMI Publishing/ Nashville for many years, is a core supporter of Harrington’s songwriting and her new sound. After viewing their most recent music video, Burch stated, “Family harmonies are always special and the Harringtons have a distinctive sound...their songs are unique and their energetic stage performance is the icing on the cake."

Some of Harrington’s previous local and regional accomplishments include: winner of the prestigious “Big Heart Award” from Civitan Georgia; five “Best of Country” awards for original songwriting, from the Georgia Music Industry Association; three National Anthem solo performances for the opening of the Atlanta Braves games; opening act at the Fabulous Fox Theatre; her original song “The First Bright Star” was written and sung by Arista recording artist Geoff McBride for the 51st annual lighting of Rich’s Great Tree; her original song “Let Me Win” was written and used statewide as an anthem for the Georgia Special Olympics and was performed at the 1996 Paralympics Torch Ceremony; she was named “Recording Artist of the Year” by the Atlanta Society of Entertainers; and more.

Ed Pucko, the Director of Licensing and spokesman for the Lowery Group, proudly announced that the Lowery Group is giving its full support to The Harringtons. “Family-influenced music has had an historical impact on the roots of country music. The Lowerys are convinced that Atlanta can fill a niche with its own brand of Southern family talent, The Harringtons.” Pucko’s belief in the group is strong. He states, “The blend of Cindy Lou’s velvety vocal with Taylor’s soprano and Brittany’s smooth alto creates a naturally rich harmony that is filling a music industry gap--a gap we see is satisfied by this multi-generational mother-daughter family band. Their powerful live performances combined with Cindy Lou’s songwriting are an unbeatable combination.”

Cindy Lou Harrington’s work with blind and disabled students has inspired many of her original songs. Utilizing music and song in her teaching has both broadened Harrington’s experience and inspired the families of these students. Certain of Harrington’s students have been given the opportunity to sing and even perform on stage with various personalities such as Aretha Franklin, Jesse Jackson and Senator Max Cleland.

Harrington’s daughters are equally as remarkable and aspiring as their mother. Brittany, age 18, is the techo-musical talent of the family and is a freshman at Georgia State University majoring in Sound Technology and Communications. She was the first President of the Junior Board of Directors of the Georgia Music Industry Association in 2004, and she is currently managing a monthly
