Fowler has lived a life that truly reflects his music--troubled to some, enviable to many and yet remarkable to most anyone who hears the soft-spoken Atlanta, Ga. native recount it. Living a rock-n-roll lifestyle eventually caused Fowler to hit rock bottom. After being kicked out of a drug dealer's house in downtown Atlanta, he found himself homeless. Fowler had lost his relationships with all of his family and was alone. Here he cried out to God, "whoever you are or whatever you are I need you." Shortly after this revelation, Fowler checked into a rehab house in Athens, Ga. where God began to put back together all these broken pieces in his life. With over 10 years of sobriety, Fowler is still involved in his local Celebrate Recovery.
Jason Fowler's sound is a mix of melodic passion, with roots that can be traced to a musically inspired family. Fowler first displayed his talents for music and writing in the band Ultraphonic. The band went on to win a $250,000 recording contract with Garage Band Records. Ultraphonic would begin recording its third album with legendary producer, Johnny Sandlin (Allman Bros. Band/Widespread Panic), complemented by industry force, Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section, (aka The Swampers). Later Fowler was the front man for the band Speed X alongside Mike Stone of '80s metal band Queensryche, Josh Sattler of Double Drive, as well as Nick Catanese and Mike Froedge of Black Label Society. The band proved to be a force in the hard-rock music scene for several years. Fowler currently performs with industry heavyweights Will Turpin of Collective Soul and Shane Evans, the original drummer for Collective Soul. Fowler released his solo debut Letters from the Inside in 2014 as a musical journal of his experience, newfound strength and hope in his recovery from substance abuse and homelessness. In 2016, Fowler will release his debut Christian album I Fall In. He currently lives in Atlanta, where he has served as the worship pastor of Refuge City Church, with his wife and two sons.
