With an insatiable ability to craft a modern day classic, it is clear Howard Rose's influences are boundless and eclectic, ranging from the likes of Sharon Jones and Charles Bradley to The Beatles, Led Zeppelin and St Vincent. Favourably compared to Alabama Shakes, Father John Misty and Wilco, Rose offers a unique and refreshing take on both modern soul and rock ’n' roll, pulled together by an unmistakable vocal and magnetic stage presence. Catch him as he embarks on a series of live dates across the UK, in the lead up to summer, accompanied by his equally incredible band.
"This is oven fresh, radio-friendly guitar pop that’s inspired by the great British songwriters and performers of the sixties and seventies, whilst offering its own confident modern-day twist at the same time"
- Record of The Day
"There is something familiar, comforting yet at the same time moving and powerful about Howard Rose. It’s this winning combination of attributes that makes Howard so easy to like. With this unpretentious vibe, the audience feels like they are proud friends, in awe of unmistakable talent. Ronnie Scott’s played host to the singer and his band last Tuesday and there was clearly an air of anticipation about Howard’s performance. Despite being the last to perform, all were instantly enthused as his distinctive voice filled the room. Smiles and recognition of his poignant lyrics could be seen in every corner of Ronnie Scott’s timeless lounge. Howard Rose is sure to uplift any crowd with his exceptional story-telling and exquisite sounds. If you have the chance to experience HR in such intimate settings, do it; you won’t be disappointed."
