about

The TRIBUTE TO INSPIRATION album was born out of gratitude for, and is dedicated to, all of the people that taught and directly inspired Carlton and Peyton McDowell to become better musicians. While the music on this album crisscrosses blues, jazz, and R&B genres, the musicians who contributed to this album, many of which are the inspirations, are equally as eclectic. The McDowell Brothers have never put themselves into one category or another. They respect all types of music. They’ve always played the blues, because their grandmother Nancy L. Rice, is one of blues music’s biggest champions, and gave them their first music lessons.

Although Carlton is 16 years-old and Peyton is 13 years-old, they’ve literally been musicians over half of their lives because of the following individuals: Mrs. Neva Artis, John Falstrom, Fernando Jones, Rose Reed and the entire Jimmy Reed Family, Frank Anestos, Dr. Roosevelt Griffin, artist Brother Jacob Schultz, & Jamiah Rodgers. Carlton and Peyton McDowell are fortunate to have benefitted from the Homewood School District #153 Music Program with great musicians/conductors/music educators such as Mrs. Kim Tallungam and Mr. Matthew Zimmerman. Thank you to everyone for sharing all of your time and talent with the McDowell Brothers, and for listening to the album. We hope you enjoy it.
