Soulful vocalist, songwriter, trombone player, percussionist, keyboardist and producer.
Born and raised in the Queensbridge Projects of New York City. Bernard Fowler's experience has spanned all genres of music ranging from gospel, rock, R&B, jazz, funk to latin.
He has appeared on tours and albums, singing and displaying his versatile and eclectic talents with some of the best-known artists of the 20th Century: Herbie Hancock, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Gil Scott-Heron, Sly & Robbie, Material, Bootsy Collins, Herb Alpert and many others, as well as his own Peech Boys, Tackhead and Nicklebag.
Sidewalk Driver is high-energy, highly-infectious, hook-driven, Rock with a capital ‘R.’ The sound is modern but the heart of the band seems to be more in line with 1970s rock culture… the Bowies and the Belushis of the world. Lead singer Tad McKitterick’s voice has power and clarity, is expressive without falling off the pitch and is forceful without losing subtle moments. Guitarists Kate Murdoch and Jared Egan seamlessly weave crunchy rhythms with soaring solos while bassist Jonn Smith and drummer A.J. Locke hold down the bottom end. The songs always come with some odd bent but not one that repels; rather, they welcome you to join in the celebration like a carnival barker hyping a freak show.
$25.00 - $30.00
In 2015, Earl Slick and Bernard Fowler decided to celebrate the upcoming 40th Anniversary of David Bowie’s celebrated Station to Station album with a tour in the United Kingdom. Sadly David Bowie passed away and the tour, which kicked off in March of 2016, became a celebration of his life, featuring songs from Station to Station, and other Bowie, Rolling Stones, and Bernard Fowler tunes. The tour was an enormous success, and received praise in press and social media. On the heels of that incredible journey, Slick and Bernard are bringing a similar set to the United States.
