An indie success story, Bernard Fowler's career has spanned three decades, from the early days as a member of the Peech Boys (with our own Steven "Boogie" Brown) to work with artists as diverse as Herbie Hancock, Bootsy Collins, Philip Glass, James "Blood" Ulmer, Michael Hutchence, Ryuichi Sakamoto, and countless others. He is best known by many as a vocalist and percussionist touring with the Rolling Stones.
His intimate knowledge of the Stones' catalog has led to his newest album, Inside Out. A few years ago, he began re-working a song as a spoken word piece during a soundcheck, and the band liked what it heard. Mick Jagger went so far as to say, "Bernard, I’ve heard Rolling Stones songs done a lot of ways but never like this." The group encouraged him to have a go at recording his unique versions of some of its best-known songs like "Sister Morphine" and "Sympathy for the Devil."
