Singing and playing since early childhood, Bonnie Lowdermilk has her Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Colorado at Boulder and has been performing professionally for close to thirty years. She studied jazz piano with Denver's renowned teacher, the late Ted Alexander as well as with Berkelee School of Music's Katy Roberts. Throughout the 1990's Bonnie lived and performed in Paris, France. She played at the celebrated Duc de Lombard and Sunset and other major clubs and festivals there. In 1998 she played the festival, “Jazz in Marciac”, where celebrities Wynton Marsalis and Shirley Horn also performed and gave a five day vocal clinic at the festival.
