Roots guitar guru Damon Fowler has just finished recording Sounds of Home, his third solo project for Blind Pig Records. Produced by award-winning swamp blues master Tab Benoit at his Whiskey Bayou Studio in rural Houma, Louisiana, the album is scheduled for a late January 2014 release.

On Sounds of Home, Benoit sings background vocals on several tracks and contributes pedal steel and acoustic guitar on others, while Big Chief Monk Boudreaux is a special guest on the title track.

Damon says the title of the album sums up the spirit and approach of the project. While his music is deeply rooted in the blues, it's also strongly tinged with country, rock, and roots music. Growing up in Florida, Damon was exposed to, and influenced by, the variety of roots music styles popular in the Gulf Coast - country, swamp blues, rock, old-timey, sacred steel, soul, and Latin.

Bonus! Check out Ken Eisner's interview with Fowler from the April 2011 issue of Guitar Player.
