It’s not that easy these days in the UK to stand out in the pack of folk-styled artists but singer-songwriter Ben Howard is doing just that.
The Devon-native — whose music has drawn comparisons to that of Jose Gonzalez and Jack Johnson — attracted a diehard fanbase after releasing an EP of warm-voiced, guitar-driven meditations titled Old Pine last spring. When Howard’s first full-length work, Every Kingdom, followed in the fall, it landed on the Top Ten of the UK Charts its first week and later went gold.
