Blind Pig Records has released a new CD entitled Devil Got His Way from Damon Fowler, a master of six string, lap steel, dobro and slide guitars.
Damon 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 the legions of guitar heroes.
On Devil Ghttp://mailman.305spin.com/users/blindpigrecords/images/Fowler5139email1.jpgot His Way, Damon fulfills the tremendous potential promised on his acclaimed Blind Pig debut, Sugar Shack. His remarkable songwriting skills and vocal expressiveness are maturing, and his instrumental voice, by turns incendiary and deeply lyrical, is even stronger. Damon demonstrates his uncanny ability to make all the flavors of American rock ‘n’ roll uniquely his own with his skillful blend of Southern roots rock, swampy blues, and country steel.
Guitar Player raved, “In the Blues world – or any other genre, for that matter – the complete package is hard to come by… to combine facile fervor on a Tele, a lap-steel, and a flattop with a truly compelling vocal style and soulful songwriting – that’s something rare in an artist of any age. It’s even more impressive when such maturity and authenticity come from a 25-year-old like Damon Fowler.”
While the Chicago Sun-Times added, “Make way for the next big-time guitar slinger, wire-walking Tampa, Fla., native Damon Fowler. This kid can play.”
