Kevin Fowler is a country singer/songwriter from Amarillo, Texas whose lucrative career in the music industry has seen the generation of multiple hit singles landing on the Billboard Hot Country music charts since breaking out onto the scene in the year 2000. Preferring to produce music that resonates with his target audience, Fowler's hit songs range from topics on self-improvement ("Ain't Drinking Anymore"), to the contradictory ("The Lord Loves a Drinking Man"), and blue-collar leisure ("Beer, Bait & Ammo"). Indeed, Kevin Fowler strives to fit the mold of a commercially-successful country music artist and succeeds by all accounts, with his most recent 2011 single "Girl in a Truck" reaching #1 on the Texas Music Chart almost as quickly as it was released.
Saratoga Springs, New York-based band Phantogram is ostensibly an indie rock band, though they frequently incorporate drum machines and electronically programmed beats into songs driven by electric guitar and synth melodies. The band is influenced by hip-hop instrumentals in this regard, as well as pop and rock music. Dance music is central to Phantogram's sonic ethos, and so is lead singer Sarah Barthel's unique voice. The group's 2009 debut LP, Eyelid Movies, helped establish the band as a forward thinking act that's not afraid to distinguish itself with a characteristically modern electropop sound.
