Devil Got His Way Devil Got His Way (1/18/2011) Add To Cart
- Damon Fowler

"One of the swampiest guitar pickers to emerge from the humid Southeast since Lightnin' Slim and Tony Joe White.  Devil Got His Wayfeatures catchy, deeply blue originals full of country soul." - Guitar Player

"Damon Fowler has become one soul-oozin', rock 'n' rollin', swamp stalkin' blue monster of a talent."-Hittin' the Note

"Fowler pulls all of these songs off as well or better than the people who are his mentors. This is an old soul comfortable in his young skin who has a long career ahead. " -Blues Revue

"Devil Got His Wayis full of lyrically rich, confident songwriting and  shimmering Americana-laced guitar. Fowler is as expressive a songwriter as he is a singer and instrumentalist. He's preaching an  otherworldly, Americana-themed gospel from a six-stringed pulpit. He is a roots guitar guru in the making."  - Living Blues

"The fact that Fowler can shred with the Best of them is really an aside to the fact that the man knows how to deliver a well-rounded song and, for that matter, album." - Willamette Week

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 Got His Way, Damon fulfills the tremendous potential that his acclaimed Blind Pig debut, Sugar Shack, promised. His remarkable songwriting skills and vocal expressiveness are maturing, and his instrumental voice, by turns incendiary and deeply lyrical, is even stronger. Damon and his band have been touring extensively since the release of Sugar Shack, and there is quite a buzz already about this release.

Critical praise for Sugar Shack:
 
"Make way for the next big-time guitar slinger, wire-walking Tampa, Fla., native Damon Fowler. This kid can play... Even better, he shows no need to kill you with pyrotechnics on his major-label debut for San Francisco's Blind Pig." -- Chicago Sun Times
 
 "After three self-released albums, Florida native Damon Fowler makes his Blind Pig debut with this notable project. Fowler oscillates between country, electric blues and Americana. He's a formidable slide guitar player... He has also mastered lap steel and dobro as well as electric guitar, and his playing throughout the album is deft. Indeed, Fowler may be so skillful that he prefers pickin' tasty to larger-than-life guitar heroics. Fowler wrote nine of the 12 tunes on the album, and his original material is solid. - Billboard 
 
"Sugar Shack is lean and slinky, powered by Fowler's exceptional work on electric guitar, slide, Dobro and lap steel...On Sugar Shack, Fowler is first-rate all the way." - Orlando Sentinel 
 
"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." - Guitar Player
