Electric Blues, Swamp Rock, Country, R&B - that's what Damon Fowler is all about!
Damon Fowler is an American electric blues and blues rock singer, guitarist, and songwriter. His sound is blues based, but there are hints of country, swamp rock, R&B, and swing in his playing and song writing. Over the years, Fowler has worked with Delbert McClinton, Chris Duarte, Buddy Guy, Johnny Winter, Edgar Winter, Jeff Beck, Robin Trower, Gregg Allman, Junior Brown, Rick Derringer, Little Feat, Jimmie Vaughan, Victor Wainwright, and the Radiators.
After spending much of the past year touring with the band Southern Hospitality, Damon Fowler is back with his third solo project for Blind Pig Records, Sounds of Home. Damon chose swamp blues master Tab Benoit to produce and record him at Tab's rural Louisiana home studio, and their collaboration has resulted in Damon's strongest effort to date. The tension between his measured, laid-back vocal delivery and the hallmark intensity of his guitar virtuosity has never been keener, and the stories told in his songwriting here - sometimes in collaboration with long-time writing partner Ed Wright and Benoit - exhibit a combination of depth, grace and humor very few of his contemporaries can match.
With special guests Deal James. Deal moved to South Florida from St. Louis, MO. in 2013 and took the scene by storm with an array of original songs such as "Take Your Medicine" and "Dig In." He turned heads left and right with a multifarious catalogue of covers that he cooks up with his own special sauce, reaching out to genres from Alt-Rock, MoTown, Hip Hop and R&B. Deal James has warmed up the stage for Donavon Frankenreiter, Pat Travers and J J Grey.
