"The model of tomorrow's recording artist"
Citing the likes of Jeff Buckley, Radiohead, and Dave Matthews among his influences, Howie Day used their music as a basis for his own original direction. Howie, like Patty Griffin, was a product of Bangor, Maine, who made a splash in Boston's coffeehouse scene. He released his first album, "Australia," in 2000. A lot has happened since then. Howie's music went in a rock direction, and he got the attention of industry heavyweight Chris Blackwell and was signed to the major Epic label. He got a gold record for his album "Stop the World Now," and he's been romantically linked to Britney Spears. What hasn't changed is that he writes songs imbued with a wide-eyed sense of boundless emotion, and clothes them in gorgeous arrangements that include innovative looping techniques. Howie's live shows are wonderful experiments in diverse song and instrumentation, and if you haven't experienced this unique artist yet, you're missing out! The Brian Jarvis Band opens.
