Charlie Lowell & Matthew Odmark

Charter InducteesClass of 2024

The multi-Grammy Award winning musicians are members of the alternative Christian rock band platinum-recording band Jars of Clay, which also crossed-over to a mainstream chart success in the 1990s. Jars of Clay is heralded as one of the most well-known and successful bands to come out of the Christian music scene.

The band also earned GMA Dove Awards and BMI Awards and has music featured in several hit movies and television shows, with Lowell on keys and Odmark on guitar, as well as secondary vocals and harmonies.

Lowell and Odmark were childhood friends who attended Rochester Catholic schools together and graduated from McQuaid Jesuit High School.

In 2001 Odmark won the Gibson Guitar Award for Best Acoustic Guitarist, considered the “Oscars” of the guitar world. The three guitarists Odmark beat out were Beck, Bon Jovi, and Bob Dylan.
