Rex Fowler and Neal Shulman have spent a lifetime of making music together as the folk/rock duo, Aztec Two-Step. After taking their name from a poem by beat poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti, and with four plus decades as staples of progressive FM radio, major record deals and non-stop touring, Rex and Neal continue to impress audiences with intelligent songwriting, dazzling acoustic lead guitar and soaring two-part harmonies. The duo has performed worldwide, been critically acclaimed in major U.S. newspapers, reviewed in Rolling Stone Magazine and appeared on numerous radio and TV shows, including The King Biscuit Flour Hour and David Letterman.|
The story of Aztec Two-Step is intertwined with the history of folk/rock music in America. Originating from a chance meeting at an open mic night in a Boston folk club in 1971, Rex & Neals first four albums on Elektra & RCA Records helped usher the music of the 60s into the 1970s and beyond, leaving an indelible mark on the musical genre. As their recording career continued, so did the critical acclaim. In 1986, their album Living in America was named in Billboards year-end critics poll. It also received the New York Music Award for the Best Folk Album.
