Damon Fowler (born and raised in Brandon, Florida) is an American electric blues and blues-rock singer, guitarist, and songwriter. During his career, Fowler has worked with Delbert McClinton, Chris Duarte, Buddy Guy, Johnny Winter, Edgar Winter, Jeff Beck, Robin Trower, Gregg Allman, Junior Brown, Rick Derringer, Little Feat, Jimmie Vaughan, Victor Wainwright, Butch Trucks, Dickey Betts and the Radiators.
Fowler first picked up the guitar at the age of 12 and, by experience, subsequently expanded his skills and range to include playing acoustic, electric, lap steel, and dobro, incorporating slide techniques. In his teenage years, Fowler played at small clubs in the Tampa Bay Area. With a growing local reputation, he began to appear as a support act, both on other musicians tours and at music festivals. His debut album, Riverview Drive (1999), was self-released and included material all written by Fowler. Rick Derringer both played on, and produced the record. Further self-releases of Roots and Branches (2000) and the live album, Live at Skipper's Smoke House (2003) followed, gained Fowler critical notice.
In March 2007, Blind Pig Records signed Fowler, with his first issue with them being the largely blues-based album, Sugar Shack (2009).
His accolades include Creative Loafing magazines "Best Guitarist, Best Lap-Steel player, Best Do-Bro player, & Best Slide player".
In September 2015, Fowler joined Butch Trucks and the Freight Train Band.
Fowler joined Dickey Betts Band as the slide guitar player on the 2018 Tour.
