Local guitar hero Damon Fowler has inked a deal with venerable blues label Blind Pig (Muddy Waters, Buddy Guy). Well, its been in the works for a long time, Fowler says from a tour stop in Colorado. Ive been excited, but weve been in negotiations for a while. Im just finally glad we got it done. Im just relieved.
Blind Pig is putting Fowler and his two band mates up for 10 days in Chicago to finish recording what will be the trios Blind Pig debut. Fowler has been told the label wants it ready for a January 2009 release. They say thats the best time to break a new artist, Fowler says.
