Bursting on the scene in 1972 with their self-titled debut on Elektra Records, folk-rock duo Aztec Two-Step’s first album and three subsequent albums for RCA Records were staples of progressive FM and college radio, and helped to bring the music of the 1960s into the '70s and beyond. Since then, Rex Fowler and Neal Shulman have spent a lifetime making music together as the folk-rock duo that takes its name from a poem by beat poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti. Recording and touring non-stop since the 70s, they have accumulated over 40 years of awards, accolades and TV and radio appearances. They have been the subject of a documentary that aired on PBS, and have graced countless stages including those of Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center. Aztec Two-Step is still more than ever defined by intelligent songwriting, dazzling acoustic lead guitar and inspiring harmonies, and continues to be one of acoustic music's most respected and enduring acts.
“…there was Aztec Two-Step, performing with an unrefined sweetness and verve that was folk-rock, pure and simple….Here was music that was honest, that spoke from the heart and soul without guilt or guile, that sang of hope, love and peace without any trace of irony. It was music that had its priorities straight.” - The Hartford Courant
''… the right sound at the right time … beautiful acoustic guitar playing and questioning lyrics … songs performed with forceful vocals and near perfect instrumental harmonies.'' – Variety
