Fowler has shared the stage with the likes of Buddy Guy, Jeff Beck, Johnny and Edgar Winter, Gregg Allman, Jimmy Vaughn, Rick Derringer, Little Feat, Delbert McClinton, and numerous others. Derringer was so impressed with Fowler that he produced and played on Fowler's debut album, entitled Riverview Drive, in 1999. Fowler released his most recent album, Devil Got His Way, in 2011. You can check out Fowler performing a song from the album in the nearby video.
