Sounds of Home CD RELEASE CELEBRATION
A blend of sacred steel, backwater blues and howling, greasy swamp rock, Damon Fowler's music is a primal, atavistic sound that makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up. His solo gigs with his skintight power trio have converted rooms full of strangers into a loyal congregation who now attend his services regularly, and his exposure as half of the twin guitar attack (with J.P. Soars) of the newly convened blues supergroup Southern Hospitality and their 2013 release Easy Livin' has given him evangelical status among the faithful.
His latest solo release, Sounds of Home, out Jan 21 on Blind Pig, is a continuation of his journey into the swampy blues church doctrines he enforces with his '50s Harmony H44 Stratotone and red Les Paul classic guitars. Producer and learned authority on all things swampy Tab Benoit jumps in with some pedal steel on Do It For the Love and throws in some acoustic backing on three additional tracks, but the rest is all Fowler, and that's all you need.
Opener: The Gold Hope Duo
Stripped down upbeat Rhythm & Blues, Country, folk and a pinch of Rockabilly. Foot Percussion! Kazoos! Banjo! Guitar! Upright Bass! Fun!
