Howard Kern “Howie” Day is an American singer-songwriter originally from Maine known for his in-concert use of samplers and effects pedals in order to accompany himself.

Howard’s musical fascinations came early in life, at age five he began to play a piano his mother bought at an auction. When Day’s mother noticed her son’s musical talents which included being able to play by ear tunes of television advertising jingles, she enrolled him in piano lessons, which he continued for six years. At the age of 13 his father bought him a Fender Stratocaster and enrolled him in basic vocal training after he showed an interest in rock music. Day played in a local band called Route 66 throughout 1997 until booking agent Shawn Radley discovered him the following year while Day was supporting Ziggy Marley at the University of Maine.

The following year Howie recorded his first demo EP, which contained covers of songs by Dave Matthews Band, Barenaked Ladies and Goo Goo dolls alongside the originals ‘Buzzing’ and ‘Lick My Lips’. This EP was followed later in 1998 by another demo consisting wholly of Day’s originals once he’d established his sound. In 2000 he self financed and self released his debut album ‘Australia’ and despite a mixed response from critics it charted at #18 on the US Heatseekers chart.

The follow-up ‘Stop All The World Now’ was recorded after Howard relocated to London and was released in October of 2003. It charted much better in the US, breaking into the Billboard album charts at #46. It also featured Howie’s first hit single, ‘Collide’ which peaked at #20 on the singles chart. Once again the album was met with mixed reviews from critics. Howie’s fan base had grown substantially and he embarked on a large tour in September to promote the album ahead of release and then toured non-stop for three years after the album was released. He says this is one reason his next album ‘Sound The Alarm’ came six years later, it features a mixture of sounds due to Day recording in several different locations around the globe and collaborating with various producers.
