    1Ex-Girlfriends [2004]


    Who are the Low Millions? A simple question - with a couple different answers. First, they are the band responsible for the eleven hook-laden tracks on their Manhattan Records debut, Ex-Girlfriends.

    But the Low Millions also represent that rarest of social entities: A successful "open" relationship. Adam Cohen, informal ringleader of the band, notes that all the seasoned players involved in the Low Millions have passed in and out of each others' orbits for many years. And if a member gets poached by another artist - as often happens with individuals of this caliber - the others don't worry; the stray always hurries home to play with the Low Millions again.

    The Low Millions first met at rehearsal halls, gigs and, eventually, recording studios throughout Los Angeles. Adam, singer-songwriter of the Low Millions, already has an eponymous 1998 album released by a major label to his credit, and also a separate solo deal, as a French language artist, in various international territories. French Canadian by birth, Adam was raised, in a trés bohemian environment, all over the world, including a long stretch in Paris (he still holds a French passport), as well as shorter periods living, studying and playing music in Greece, Canada, and the U.S.

    But Adam isn't the only one of the Low Millions with a colorful background or illustrious credits. Guitarist Michael Chaves works on the side with John Mayer. Bassist Jorgen Carlsson and drummer Erik Eldenius both grew up in Sweden. Despite outside commitments, all these talented players have made the Low Millions their primary focus, and the band has already played many well-received shows throughout Los Angeles and Southern California. To help capture the band's sound on record, and in addition to Adam Cohen acting as producer, the Low Millions enlisted assistance from several producers, including Patrick Leonard (Madonna), David Kahne (Sugar Ray, Matthew Sweet, Sublime) and Keith Forsey (Billy Idol, Donna Summer).

    As for the title Ex-Girlfriends, one need only glance at the track list to guess from whence the inspiration for this set of modern pop-rock gems was born. First, we meet the alluring "Eleanor," who has thrown her lover into a tailspin by refusing to answer to the pet name "baby" any more. Then there's "Julia," a lady who conjures up feelings so strong yet familiar that they recall every lonely-hearts standard played on the radio. "Hey Jane" cries out, over the sound of loud music from passing cars, to a long-gone lover who has left only her old clothes. It was this recurring theme of soured relationships and undying romanticism that prompted the band to call their record Ex-Girlfriends. But while disappointment often bubbles up in the lyrical sentiments expressed in these eleven tunes, the craftsmanship and care that permeates the Low Millions' hook-laden music ensures that Ex-Girlfriends never lets the listener down.
