Speechwriters LLC

Speechwriters LLC was initially conceived as a cautious alliance between West Coast songwriters Dave Lowensohn and Misha Chellam, who quickly became inseparable and spent most of the Bush years touring the country in borrowed minivans. They have since managed to strike a delicate balance between California sunshine and Northwest navel gazing, resulting in a weirdly three dimensional folk-pop that resonates with Red and Blue staters alike. The Speechwriters have toured 38 states, won countless, meaningless awards, and once loaned Jay Farrar their amp.

Dave Lowensohn (vocals/guitars) is a veteran of Portland’s music scene and a regular on the college tour. When he’s not the unrecognized face of Speechwriters LLC, he plays bass in Ramona Falls and Lost Lander.

Misha Chellam (vocals/guitars) is a globetrotting techno-nomad who has worked on MIT’s One Laptop Per Child program and been a coordinator at TEDx. Besides ghostwriting his own speeches, he has been instrumental in making Speechwriters LLC more famous in Southeast Asia than they have any right to be.
