Fiorenza - Dowlin
This duo from Chester County, Pennsylvania focuses on performing as much as possible. Celebrating their first decade as a duo and looking forward to 10 more years of blended roots rock Americana folk music.
David Fiorenza and Wayne Dowlin had respectful solo careers and met at an Open Mic night in King of Prussia at a small café. David and Wayne then started backing up each other on their solo shows when they realized they heard something special and unique. No other duo was performing the cover songs that Fiorenza-Dowlin has made special to their show. The duo turns into a trio at larger shows in the summer with the addition of Dave “boom-boom” Brown on drums and percussion.
Fiorenza-Dowlin utilizes guitars, mandolin, harmonious vocals and percussion to bring their acoustic folk pop Americana sound to their listeners.
Having received extensive airplay in Europe, Australia and New Zealand for their solo CD’s, it was inevitable the duo’s CD would be well received in those areas as well. The decision to release a CD was spontaneous, just like the performances the duo is known for in the Delaware Valley. Their CD, Live at Wagonstock, was recorded at an arts and music festival in Wagontown, PA. A mix of originals and eclectic covers makes this CD a must for music fans. The duo has been influenced by James Taylor, Todd Rundgren and Brian Wilson yet their sound is more Mary Chapin Carpenter and Lucinda Williams.
Fiorenza-Dowlin are always looking for their next show. Having performed at the major small venues in the area such as World Café Live, The Kennett Flash!, The Point and Steel City Coffeehouse or large festivals to audiences of 1,000 to 5,000, Fiorenza-Dowlin can tailor their show to any situation.
They look forward to the many charity and benefits that give them the ability to perform and showcase their music, such as the annual Chester County Walk for Paws and are affiliated with Musicians on Call. This organization reaches out to patients in hospitals in Philadelphia, New York and Nashville.
