Bowman is living proof that the art of rock songwriting is still thriving. In the tradition of Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, Ryan Adams and John Mayer, Bowman makes melodic rock that engages live audiences with arresting vocals, insightful lyrics and intricate song arrangements.
Bowman exploded onto the Boston music scene in 2001 with the self-released debut album, “Believe.” Critical acclaim was fast to follow: Billboard magazine named Bowman “Best New Artist” and the Boston Music Awards nominated Bowman for Best Male Vocalist. The overnight success of “Believe” sparked interest across the country from fans, critics and industry insiders alike.
Now, with the release of his highly-anticipated second album, “Living to Dream,” Bowman is poised for a major national breakthrough.
