Ben Howard

Before launching his career as an acoustic singer/songwriter, Ben Howard grew up in South Devon, England, where his mother’s collection of folk records helped instill a love for Joni Mitchell, Donovan, and Richie Havens. Howard also developed an interest in surfing, catching his first wave at the age of 11 and heading to the beach whenever he wasn’t busy writing music in the folksy style of his influences. While pursuing a journalism degree years later, he briefly moved to Newquay, the surf capital of the U.K., where he received class credit for working at a surfing magazine. Howard dropped out of school six months shy of graduation, though, convinced by the surf community’s enthusiastic response to his music -- which, despite its acoustic folk sound and beachy vibe, sounded more like John Martyn than Jack Johnson -- that he should ditch the newsroom and focus on songwriting.

The surf community proved to be a big stepping stone for Howard, who found himself playing to packed audiences long before his music spread beyond the U.K. beaches. He continued developing his style, too, adding a percussive element to his playing by learning to rap his knuckles across the guitar body between strums. A European tour with Xavier Rudd helped him build a wider audience in late 2008, as did the release of EPs like These Waters and Old Pine. By the time Howard finished recording his full-length debut, Every Kingdom, in autumn 2011, he’d signed a major-label deal with Island Records (the same label that once released music by John Martyn) and graduated to headliner status, thanks to growing fan bases in England, Germany, France, and Holland. Every Kingdom performed very well in the U.K., where it wound up getting nominated for the Mercury Prize and helped him win BRIT Awards for British Breakthrough Act and British Solo Male Artist; it was certified Platinum in that country. For his anticipated sophomore set, I Forget Where We Were, Howard went somewhat electric and was rewarded with strong reviews and sales; it debuted at number one on the U.K. charts. ~ Andrew Leahey, Rovi

Ben Howard has been hands down my favorite artist for a long time. His lyrics are beautiful and there are so many of his songs that I connect with so deeply. I'm extremely excited to finally see him in concert next month with my best friend!

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in two days. Now you started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes. When done press f6 and you lovers name will appear on the screen in big letter this is so scary because it actually works

I love Ben Howard. He writes incredible songs. I know all the words. I can listen to his songs in about mood. So I love him��!

Life is pretty amazing, even when it beats the s**t out of us. And, I get that from his music, and I don't even know if he's ever suffered loss. I know, in The Fear when he sings I will become what I deserve . . .well, that is poignant for me and that touches me. And I like his music. Have yet to meet another person my age who does. I turn 40 in December. Peace. Blessings to you all.

His music has a way of touching ones soul and leaving it's perfectly imperfect print upon it. This album takes you on epic highs with such songs as Old Pine while taking you to the lowest points, letting you sit and marinate in emotion to the likes of Esmerelda. Ben Howard is an amazing artist that has resotred my faith in today's music scene.

i love all of his songs, period. but old pine was the first one that i heard and i was instantly hooked! this song is special to me because it reminds me of my friend. also, black flies is another one of my favorites because there's just so much emotion involved (as with every song, really.) also, i would definitely play under the same sun at my wedding reception because it just reminds me of either that or a movie :>
