The University of Georgia recently announced that Cracker/Camper Van Beethoven rocker David Lowery will be teaching a course during the spring semester. The course, Fundamental Concepts in Music Business, was thought to be perfect for the veteran musician.
In the press release issued by the college, David Barbe, director of the UGA Music Business Certificate Program and Athens musician/producer, explained that “Lowery embodies the program’s ideal of finding lecturers who are active professionals that embrace change within the industry.”
This is not the first time that Lowery has taught for the Terry College of Business. In 2009, he served as a guest lecturer.
Along with co-founding Cracker and Camper Van Beethoven, Lowery also co-founded the record label Sound of Music Studios, which is based out of Richmond, Va. Camper Van Beethoven’s track, “Take the Skinheads Bowling,” was featured prominently in Michael Moore’s 2002 documentary, Bowling for Columbine. Lowery plans to release his first solo album, The Palace Guards, on Feb. 1.
