Our local blues guitar hero is releasing his first national release on Blind Pig Records. For his CD Release Party he will be joined by many music friends for a very special evening.
Sugar Shack, Damon's Blind Pig debut, set to be released January 27th, showcases a fresh and exciting rising star at the height of his powers as a performer and writer. Damon's sparkling original compositions pair perfectly with well-chosen cover tunes from Billy Joe Shaver, Merle Haggard, and the Amazing Rhythm Aces. And Damon's soulful vocal delivery and instrumental prowess continually excite and delight. Scott Cable, renowned for his work on Blind Pig's acclaimed comeback album by Nappy Brown, served as producer. Remarking at the end of the sessions, Cable said, "Working with Damon, I really understood why so many people are in his corner. He is talented, bright, and just a very gifted artist. Catching someone like Damon on their way up is a refreshing experience."
Fowler's guitar work has been compared to Johnny Winter and Jeff Beck, while his slide guitar has a hint of the late Duane Allman. He can play fiery guitar runs with the best of them, but it's his lyrical work on lap steel and Dobro that makes him stand out among a legion of guitar players. Reviewing a recent performance in Illinois, Juke Joint Soul said, "Fowler's heavy helping of swamp rock and slide guitar blues conjured up a huge lightning storm. Having full command of his voice as an equal instrument to his guitar, Fowler can easily croon you to sleep as he could belt out a jump blues or a Creedence-like swamper. This kid has got the tools to take on the big stage."
