Rick Fowler's earlier bands included Ziggurat, Deacon Little, and Fortnox. Fowler also recorded with pop singer Bertie Higgins, whose hit single Key Largo reached platinum sales in several countries. In 1982, the Fortnox song Storm Inside My Head went to number 44 in US Airplay and the band’s video reached the top 20 on MTV. In 1984, Rick’s band Bombay recorded an album with legendary British producer Eddie Offord (of John Lennon, Yes, and Emerson, Lake, and Palmer fame) supported by the MTV video Rumble Tonight.
In 1991, Rick Fowler moved to Athens, Georgia, after months of touring overseas with the band Bad Fun. He began performing with a number of Athens-based artists, including Ralph Roddenberry, Redneck Greece, and The Lonely White Boys (a band he formed with Drivin' N' Cryin guitarist Buren Fowler, Dreams So Real drummer Drew Worsham, and Normaltown Flyers bassist Greg Veale). He also regularly played guitar in side band projects with Bill Berry (R.E.M.), Dave Schools (Widespread Panic, Government Mule), Randall Bramblett (Traffic), and a number of other top musicians from the area.
As both a studio musician and a producer, Rick has been involved in hundreds of released projects including CD's, commercials, and movie sound tracks on both independent and major labels.
Fowler signed with Jammates Records in 2007 and recorded the CD Back On My Good Foot. With the CD's release in 2008, Fowler is touring in support of the record.
