Nate Fowler’s new EP, “Through It All”, features a great collection of hope inspiring, love and love-lost tunes sung through Fowler’s breathy, Top-40 radio friendly pipes. Fowler’s new radio single “Alive” has been welcomed by Dan McColly program director for Journal Broadcast Group and 94.9FM The River saying, “It’s just really unusual to find something that’s so well-written and well Produced that’s done locally.”
The EP’s first single “Alive” held the #1 spot on 94.9FM for 9 weeks and continues to play in regular rotation on the station. The follow up single “What We’ve Started” was also added to 94.9FM currently hovering in top 10 on the stations playlist.
In July of 2010 Fowler’s song “Hurricane” was named the GMA’s IMMERSE National “Song of 2010” in Nashville, TN. In 2011 a star studded panel of judges including Kelly Clarkson and Tom Waits awarded “Alive” with the 3rd place finish in the International Songwriting Competition out of 16,000 songs. Fowler maintains a connection and warmth on stage that is second to none due to his experience and feeling “home” in front of an audience.
Fowler is an energetic singer/songwriter whose lyrics and melodies haunt, going straight to the heart and gut. He wears his love on his sleeve and shares it with anyone willing to experience the moment with him. As a result of his powerful melodies and fulfilling lyrics, Fowlers’ acoustic and full band act have shared the stage with such performers as: NEEDTOBREATHE, Dia Frampton, Tony Lucca, Mat Kearney, Shawn Mullins, Meredith Andrews, Chris August, Parachute, Kate Voegele, Collective Soul, The Afters, Dave Barnes, Tyrone Wells, and many others.
The new EP is a follow up to Fowler’s “Wherever You Go” that also had some minor attention from commercial radio with the single, “On My Way”, which broke top 100 on the CHR/HOT AC national activator chart. Boise Weekly calls the EP, “a polished recording that will give fans something to chew on while waiting patiently for his first full- length release.” Fowler continues to build fans throughout the Northwest with an increasing touring schedule and media support surrounding this up and coming artist paving his own road. Audiences migrate toward Fowlers growing reputation to deliver during live shows and leave the crowd wanting more.
Rock station 94.9 FM The River put the song in light rotation in April then bumped it up to 20 spins a week in June — the first time a local act has been on the everyday playlist in years. –Michael Deeds Idaho Statesman
What are people saying?
“Wherever You Go” features a strong collection of love and love-lost tunes sung through Fowler’s breathy, Top-40 radio-friendly pipes” –Boise Weekly
“His [Fowler] ability to comfort and take you to another place with his vocals is a sign of true talent. “Call Me Family” was one of the most moving pieces I had heard in a very long time. The message is one the whole world needs to hear. You can feel Nate’s connection to music in every one of his songs. It has been a long time since I found an artist with such passion in his music.”– Baron of Music
“This EP is a polished recording that will give fans something to chew on while they patiently wait for his first full-length release.” –Boise Weekly (Artist Feature)
“Chasing Sunsets closes the altogether-too-short EP and leaves the listener begging for more of Fowler’s voice and makes Wherever You Go a beautiful groundwork for what will hopefully be a long and fruitful career for the young, unsigned artist Nate Fowler. The EP is full of sustenance, but in the end is only a snack—a tantalizing bite of what is to come.” –Clash Entertainment
