Biography

Rex Fowler and Neal Shulman have spent a lifetime of making music together as the folk/rock duo, "Aztec Two-Step." They have 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 a "hoot night" in a Boston folk club back in 1971, Rex & Neal’s first two albums on Elektra & RCA Records brought the music of the 60’s into the 70’s, 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 Billboard’s year-end critic’s poll. It also received the NY Music Award in 1987 for the Best Folk Album.”

Headliners in their own right, the duo also appeared in concert with such notable artists as Allen Ginsberg, Tim Hardin, Jim Croce, Laura Nero, The Beach Boys, The Band, Bruce Springsteen, Talking Heads, Randy Newman, Donovan, Judy Collins, Carly Simon, Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne, America, Seals and Crofts, Loggins and Messina, Bill Cosby and many more.

Rex and Neal released their first live album, "Highway Signs" on the PRIME-CD folk label in 1996 in celebration of their 25th anniversary. To commemorate their 30th anniversary in 2001, they released a double CD compellation entitled, “live & rare.” They will be performing a cache of "Two-Step Standards," as well as new songs from their forthcoming studio album.
