Down With The Dawn

    'Down With The Dawn' is Howie B’s first studio album in 5 years, and the first release on his new HB Recordings label. Inspired by the passing of two of his closest friends, the album has a melancholic edge to it.

    Deep, dark, low-slung house music... string laden modern classical... pitched down, heady beats... trip hop... soundtrack... Howie B’s new album is a masterclass in downbeat electronica. Nothing short of what you’d expect from an artist that has always been ahead of the curve, with over 25 years in the industry under his belt.

    The album features collaborations with Joe Hirst (producer of everyone from Bloc Party to Roll Deep and Gavin Friday (Virgin Prunes).

    Howie Day


      21-year old Howie Day is a new singer-songwriter from the US who supported Tori Amos on her 2003 tour. Those who saw him in Manchester saw a talented musician armed only with an acoustic guitar, who uses an array of delay pedals to create and control an invisible band. He slaps his guitar for a backbeat, picks the melody out on a couple of strings and sings his own backing vocals. The sounds bounce around until Day pulls them all together with his guitar and soaring voice like a latter day John Martyn. Inspired by the emotionally raw songs of Jeff Buckley or Richard Ashcroft, they are full of broken hearts, regrets and loss and this debut does have a dark tone, but Day is one of those artists that will just get better and this is a good beginning.

      Howie B


        A subtle selection of downbeat tracks with soulful electronic leanings and global vocals (Howie himself, Marina Heredia, Sweetie, Gavin Friday, Karmen Wijnberg etc). This is accessible, gentle leftfield music.
