Dream Records is very excited to announce the summer release of Polarized by Dowler. Featuring a high energy track list of Dowler’s trademark organic, wide-open ‘Rock and Roll’ sound with songwriting that explores where hardship and hope meet.
Polarized, Dowler’s first release with Dream Records, is an honest and soulful delivery that explores a number of challenging themes, revolving around relationships ranging from marital to political to the personal connection we each have with Christ. Added to the gutsy rock and roll is versatile honest songwriting, making Dowler sound equally at home at a youth rally or coffee shop, a club or sunday morning church service.
The anthemic title track, “Polarized,” examines the effects of self-righteousness and pride that, Luke Dowler (the primary performer and songwriter of Dowler) explains, was inspired by a simple conversation. “I wanted to explore the turmoil in the world that has resulted from people putting themselves before others. BUT boil it all down to a conversation between two people. I am constantly being challenged by Jesus’ call to love our enemy and our neighbor as our self. And while it is a tightrope to walk, I want to walk more like Jesus. I want to serve and love those around me, including those I might not agree with.”
Dowler has shared the stage with renowned national artists such as Skillet, The Newsboys, Downhere, and The Afters. He recorded his worship album Compared to You with influential worship leader Kevin Prosch. And with over 10,000 views on YouTube, it’s single and music video “Never Changes,” has helped inspire the creation of a number of homeless ministries.
More recently, Dowler has been actively involved helping raise funds and awareness for International Justice Mission (IJM), a non-profit organization that is a recognized leader in the battle against human trafficking and slavery worldwide. In an effort to raise awareness, Dowler wrote the song “Silence is Shameful” and led an online campaign (with over 10,000 YouTube views) giving 70% of all net sales to IJM.
Looking forward, Dowler is excited about the future and the new release with Dream Records and hopes to reach an even greater audience. Dream Records VP, Lance Brown, conveys their eagerness for signing Dowler by explaining that, “As a Christian based record label, we look for the best and most inspirational musicians to sign and represent. Dowler is a perfect fit for us and we are very excited to see Polarized released this September.”
Dowler also continues to maintain a hardworking independent spirit and a heavy touring schedule. Look for them to be headlining the Dream Records tour this fall in a city near you.
