Ben Howard

Ben Howard found vinyl by Jackson Browne, Van Morrison and Simon & Garfunkel in his parents’ record collection. Those records encouraged him to do something similar. The fanatical surfer became a dreamy singer-songwriter whose debut ‘Every Kingdom’ (2011) featured great songs like ‘Only Love’, ‘Old Pine’ and ‘Keep Your Head Up’. After that, Howard chose the path of adventure. Every new step was full of surprise. For example, the songs on his latest album, ‘Collections from the Whiteout’ (2021) are largely inspired by true stories he picked out of newspapers.  Aaron Dessner of The National – who recently worked with Taylor Swift – supervised proceedings. The record confirms Howard’s status as one of the most innovative songwriters of our time.
