Fiery soul-blues guitarist Damon Fowler was born and raised in Brandon, Florida, just outside of Tampa. He first picked up a guitar at the age of 12, and after being shown a few chords, quickly developed an affinity for the instrument. He also fell in love with the blues, and he was soon gigging regularly in small clubs in the Tampa Bay Area.

Blues With a Twist hosts Sister Mary and Jeanie Kelly have put together their list (in no particular order)of the the top 10 blues albums of 2015.
