Tampa's (actually Brandon's) own Damon Fowler's national debut CD, Sugar Shack, makes its first appearance on the Billboard Blues Chart this week at #12.
This from a release by his record label, San Francisco-based Blind Pig:
Audiences and critics alike are responding to the young guitar phenom's exciting, soulful blend of Southern rock and swamp blues. In an early review, Billboard called the CD a "notable project" and Fowler a "formidable slide guitar player ... his playing throughout the album is deft ... and his original material is solid," while The Virginian-Pilot said "Sugar Shack effectively introduces a major talent" and praised Fowler's "formidable guitar chops and slide work, versatile tenor voice, and expert command of rustic American music styles."
