ben howard: head up & heart strong

British singer-songwriter Ben Howard recently made his U.S. debut @ SXSW 2012. I got a chance to catch him at Latitude 30.

Grown Joni Mitchell and Bob Dylan, he signed to the same label as UK folk greats Nick Drake and John Martyn; Island Records. Everything I’ve heard on his debut LP, titled Every Kingdom, has been great. He starts off slow and the energy of the tracks build, crest and often crash.

If you like this sound, check him out – he’s no one hit wonder. You can find more about the chap at the Ben Howard’s Official Homepage
