Urodził się w Nowym Jorku w 1961 roku. Edukację muzyczną rozpoczął w wieku ośmiu lat, ucząc się gry na fortepianie. Kompozycją zaczął interesować się sześć lat później. W wieku piętnastu lat skomponował swoje pierwsze dzieło – Sonatę fortepianową, którą zadebiutował w Carnegie Hall w 1978. Jest absolwentem Juilliard School of Music. Za swą działalność otrzymał wiele cennych nagród, m.in.: Charles Ives Fellowship od Amerykańskiej Akademii i Instytutu Sztuki i Literatury, nagrody od ASCAP i BMI. Wyłącznym wydawcą jego muzyki jest spółka Theodore Presser.Lowell Liebermann aktualnie mieszka w Weehawken w stanie New Jersey wraz ze swym partnerem – pianistą i dyrygentem – Williamem Hobbsem, oraz dwoma psami – Daphne i Phoebus.
