Lowden came from a musical family—his father is said to have played the trumpet while rocking Harold’s cradle, and his mother played the organ.

By age 12, Harold was selling compositions to the Hall-Mack Com­pa­ny, and conducting the church orchestra by the time he was a teenager.

Lowden was associated both with Hall-Mack and with music publisher John J. Hood. In 1913, he became music editor for the Reformed Church in America. He later went into business for himself (though he failed during the Great Depression of the 1930s).

He then taught at the Bible Institute of Penn­syl­van­ia, and was the minister of music at the Linden Baptist Church in Camden, New Jersey.
