The West London-born singer/songwriter Ben Howard is among the breed of artists that creates pensive, acoustic tunes. Untainted by pop music, he has managed to keep his music pure and unpretentious with an attuned sense of soft rock composition and beautifully enduring lyrics. Having been writing music since he was a young kid, Howard had a mature repertoire of songs to choose from for his 2011 debut album, Every Kingdom. Released by Island Records, the album brought him to Austin, TX where he made his first US festival appearance at the 2012 South by Southwest music and arts festival.
