What critics are saying about Rick Fowler Band:

"Fowler sings with an understated intensity and his playing isn't showy, but brims over with a dark soulful power. Fowler's also a superior songwriter, and while his scenarios are unremittingly bleak they're also imbued with a self-effacing humor that keeps things from getting too grim.” ...Billboard magazine

“Every musician does an impressive solo; it blew me away. He is truly a talented musician, one I hope to hear from a lot more in the future.”...Holler Magazine, Colorado Blues Society

“His songs are sharply written bursts of swampy blues that never overstay their welcomes while leaving space for sincere talk-sung vocals and liquid-metal guitar lines.” ...Blues Revue Magazine

“Rick Fowler proves with this "Back On The Good Foot" that not all blues rock comes from Stevie Ray's closet.” ...Rootstime magazine, Belgium

"Athens, Georgia's Rick Fowler is a midnight stalker on guitar, steady when called for, but fearless when he rips into the moment.”...Hittin' the Note magazine

"His lyrically and melodically sharp, swampy songs are sung with a dusky, husky edge and his guitar solos stay taut and sharp. He sounds infected with the blues, as one of his tunes is titled, and he's ready to spread the disease."...Creative Loafing Magazine

“This is some of the best British blues rock you are going to hear without going back to the late sixties early seventies bands. Raw blues rock, strong guitar base, never boring, or over indulging solos.”...A1 Blues.com

“There is a complete lack of pretension to his work, and though he is clearly influenced by English rock of the '60s and '70s, there is an originality and substance to his work. Mention must be made of his fine band, apart from his own excellent guitar playing and strong vocals, he is backed up by a sympathetic group of musicians, especially the brilliant Hammond organ virtuoso Tim “Drawbar” White.”...Blues Matters Magazine, UK

"Power chords and blazing guitar blues from the speakers right from the opening track. The more times I listen to Back On My Good Foot, the more I like it.”...Washington Blues Society, Seattle, WA

"As a writer, Rick Fowler pens songs that reach out and literally grab the listener by the lapels. Add to that his stinging guitar attack and a red-hot backing band, and Back On My Good Foot makes for a highly-recommended listen!!!"...The Music City Blues Society, Nashville, TN
