DAMON FOWLER-SOUNDS OF HOME-“ELECTRIC SOUTHERN ROOTS GUMBO”-CD REVIEW JOHN EMMS

DAMON  FOWLER LIVE

Damon Fowler has never been afraid to take chances with his electric southern roots gumbo.

Lyrically strong, and pushed by bassist Chuck Riley and drummer James McKnight Fowler’s gritty third cd heats up those tubes.

Often funky, strutting, and vibrant all in the same song this Tab Benoit produced album encompasses roots music in all it’s forms.

You can delve deep down with Old Fools, Bar Stools and Me, get Stones-esque funky on the title track, or catch the gator groove on Grit My Teeth.

What comes out is Florida “Natchall” strut. You have to be born with it.

And Fowler lives it on his cover of Elvis Costello’s Alison and his slide cover mantra  TV Mama.

Exceptionally strong, and powerful, Fowler and his great band are way gone and that’s a good thing.

JOHN EMMS is a veteran music journalist

online roots radio host http://emms.podbean.com/ and roots/blues songwriter with Canadian rockers THE SHAFTMEN https://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/paycheque-blues/id365389443
