Album Review

Gulf Coast roots guitarist and lap steel maestro Damon Fowler's swampy mix of blues, bayou R&B, country, rockabilly, sacred steel, and swing has, at its best, a taut, precise, and haunting tension underlining Fowler's gently hoarse, easy, and naturally flowing everyman vocals. While it's tempting to call Fowler a blues player, and he does feature plenty of blues in all of his sets and albums, he has enough country in his voice and enough pop smarts in his songwriting to paint on a wider canvas than that. Sounds of Home, his sixth album and third for Blind Pig Records, shows this clearly, from the opener, "Thought I Had It All," an eerie, swampy confessional, through the drive-the-highway pop of "Spark," the bright, bouncy, and melodic country shuffle of "Where I Belong," and sharp covers of Elvis Costello's "Alison" and Johnny Winter's "TV Mama" (these two, along with the charming version of the traditional "I Shall Not Be Moved" that closes the album, are the only ones here that Fowler didn't write). Produced by Tab Benoit and recorded at Whiskey Bayou Studios in Houma, Louisiana, Sounds of Home has a deep, clear, and full-room sound, with Fowler's guitar lines cutting though sharp as Texas wind over a Louisiana swamp, and when he goes to the lap steel, well, it's like a sleek and chiming gospel angel just flew into the room.

Customer Reviews

great artist

I had the pleasure of catching Damon and his incredible band a few nights ago at Chan's in RI on the first stop of their new tour promoting Sounds of Home . I've been a fan for a few years but it was the first time I've had a chance to see the band live. What is apparent immediately is that these guys are at the absolute top of their craft. This is one of the tightest power trios I've ever seen - including Stevie Ray and the boys. The new tunes on this recording were performed with such skill that the crowd was just shakin' their heads with amazement - applauding just wasn't enough. I picked up the new cd and have already listened to it a bunch of times. It's fantastic but you really need to catch this band live to appreciate the depth of talent. Can't wait to see them next time around. Thanks

DAMON DELIVERS AGAIN

We have been Damon Fowler Fans for years. Went to Skippers in Tampa Fl just because the write up said "blues". Before damon was finished with the second song I was looking to purchase a CD! Awesome work once again.

Great to find some new tunes and Musician to follow!

I didn't know of Damon till I saw him open for Tab Benoit on 1/27/14 at The Plaza Live in Orlando. He is an awesome guitarist and entertainer. He was out meeting and greeting folks after the show too which is always a nice treat.
I love the song Old Fools, Barstools and Me!

Biography

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Fiery soul-blues guitarist Damon Fowler was born and raised in Brandon, Florida, just outside of Tampa. He first picked up a guitar at the age of 12, and after being shown a few chords, quickly developed an affinity for the instrument. He also fell in love with the blues, and he was soon gigging regularly in small clubs in the Tampa Bay Area. By now adding hints of R&B, soul, and country to his approach, Fowler learned to play lap steel guitar and Dobro and also added a wicked slide guitar style...
