Howard has been playing guitar live since he was 10 years old. After playing in a family band for years, he studied jazz and fingerstyle guitar in college. His style is heavily influenced by blues rock, jam bands, and early 70's hard rock.
The most important thing to him about playing music is to play with the right intention and attitude in every setting. Over the past few years, Howard has fronted several bands and worked as a side man for many different groups, both on the road and in the studio around the Kansas City area, with a few projects picking up national attention.
“I just love playing guitar live—I love the creative aspect of songwriting and recording—but there’s nothing that compares to playing in a band and playing something that really connects with somebody. I just don’t think there’s anything better than that!”
