About Ben Howard
Born in London in 1987 Ben Howard’s musical career started following the release of Games In The Dark; his debut EP, which he self-released in 2008.
Games In The Dark was followed by a further two EPs: These Waters (2009) and Old Pine EP (2010). These Waters included the track The Wolves, which later appeared on his first studio album Everyone Kingdom, while Old Pine EP included The Fear and Keep Your Head Up.
Three EPs later Howard landed his first record deal - in 2011 Island Records signed the folk singer-songwriter. He was in good company with the label as previous artists on the label have included the UK folk singers John Martyn and Nick Drake.
Howard went on to release the tracks The Wolves and Old Pine as singles, which was followed by his debut studio album Every Kingdom in 2010. It was an instant hit and he landed a nominated for the prestigious Mercury Prize in 2012.
Every Kingdom saw Ben Howard team up with India Bourne and Chris Bond – whom he later toured with – to create the album. Bourne offered keyboard, bass, cello and ukulele while Bond contributed to the vocals and percussion which both complimented Howard’s exceptional guitar skills and voice.
Ben Howard went on to tour in support of the album. He proved that his records were as good as recorded as Ben Howard tickets where in high demand. The following year he headed to America to release his debut album and performed at a number of festivals across the States and Europe.
Every Kingdom was followed by another EP – this time produced by his previous collaborator Chris Bond. The EP featured Howard playing electric guitar as opposed to his usual acoustic, which meant his sound went into a heavier direction.
2013 proved to be another successful year for Howard with a spot at Glastonbury Festival on the Pyramid Stage. He also landed two BRIT Awards for British Solo Male Artist and British Breakthrough Act.
Following up his early acclaim Ben Howard released his second studio album I Forget Where We Were in October 2014. The album went straight to No.1 on the UK Albums Chart, giving Howard his first No.1 and proving that he's a Brit star with staying power.
