SXSW Band of the Day: Ben Howard
  • MONDAY, MARCH 05, 2012

  • Posted by: Don Saas

In a not entirely expected turn of events, the center of the rootsy folk sphere of music has shifted to London. Mumford and Sons, Laura Marling, Noah and the Whale. We could go on for a while. We are proud to announce that another star of the burgeoning London folk scene, Ben Howard, will be featured as one of the performers at our showcase at this year's SXSW Music festival. Only 23 years old, Ben Howard is signed to Island Records with one full-lengthed LP under his belt, 2011's Every Kingdom



If you don't know much about Ben Howard's music, he is making the same type of melodic rootsy folk as fellow British folk act Mumford and Sons, although with his own intimate style. There's plenty of passion and immediacy to Howard's music, and on tracks like "Old Pine" and "The Wolves" Howard makes his presence felt with an urgency and power that mark him as more than just another Brit with an acoustic guitar, and his songs have enough hooks to stay with you long after the songs finally end. Every Kingdom track "Promise" was even featured on long-running medical drama House.
