Quamon Fowler was born, reared and educated in the great city of Fort Worth, Texas. His musical journey started with an elementary school music program, orchestra and band in junior high school, then high school band. He began listening to various types of music and duplicating that music by practicing relentlessly from the age of twelve. He begun composing music at fifteen.
His endless practicing and quest to achieve paid off. He earned first chair tenor saxophone in the All-State Jazz Ensemble in 1998. He won twice in the NAACP ACT-SO competition. He won first, in Charlotte, North Carolina in 1996, and again in Atlanta, Georgia in 1998, competing in the jazz category.
After graduating from O.D. Wyatt High School, Quamon attended Weatherford College where he was directed by jazz guitarist, Tom Burchill. A year later, Quamon felt he needed to extend his music studies, so he decided to attend Southern University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. There he studied with world-renowned jazz clarinetist and educator, Alvin Batiste. Mr. Batiste was a great mentor and encouragement to Quamon.
He performed with Mr. Batiste around Baton Rouge and New Orleans. In May of 2000, Mr. Batiste encouraged Quamon to produce a CD, so Quamon released his first independent CD project in July of 2000, Introducing Quamon Fowler. The project combined straight-ahead jazz and soul to create a unique sound while reflecting his musical expertise as a developing artist.
