New Damon Fowler Release Critically Acclaimed
|“Sounds of Home” the new Blind Pig release from roots guitar guru Damon Fowler, debuted this week at #12 on the Billboard blues chart!|
Damon chose swamp blues master Tab Benoit to produce the album at Tab’s rural Louisiana home studio, and their collaboration has resulted in Damon’s strongest effort to date. Damon has spent much of the last year touring with the critically-acclaimed group Southern Hospitality, whose Easy Livin’ Blind Pig release was also produced by Tab.
Americana publication No Depression said of Sounds of Home, “A blend of sacred steel, backwater blues and howling, greasy swamp rock, Fowler’s music is a primal, atavistic sound that makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up. Fowler is that rare artist whose studio recordings pack as much of a wallop as his live shows. This one will pin your ears back and track swamp fonk all over the place.”
USA Today said, “Fowler nails the region’s bluesy, easy-rocking, gospel-tinged sound. The covers are well-chosen, but Fowler’s originals and nimble guitar work are the reasons to visit.”
Last week Damon and his band played a live set to a standing ovation on the national radio “Mountain Stage” program that will be broadcast at the end of April. This week he’ll be stopping by the New York City offices of Relix magazine for an video interview and feature.
The group is just beginning a national tour in support of the new album. For a complete list of dates, please click HERE.
