"The single most wonderful thing about the music of Dylan Fowler is how quickly the listener becomes unconscious of the fact that one is listening to a guitar! The profound musicality of Dylan`s writing and playing makes for an experience that transcends the bounds of what is often accepted as `guitar music.` Dylan creates fine, memorable, emotionally engaging music which goes light years beyond the obvious fact that he is a very talented player of his chosen instrument." Don Ross - Canadian Guitar Maestro
