An intimate evening of songs and stories with Howard Jones.
It was in 1983 that Howard Jones first burst upon the contemporary music scene with his very English songwriting, pioneering synthesisers and thought provoking lyrics. He set out his manifesto in his very first single New Song. The lyrics called on the listener to challenge their preconceived ideas, to see both sides and ‘throw off your mental chains’.
New Song was recently used in a pivotal scene in Breaking Bad where Aaron Paul’s character Jessie Pinkman questions if he wants to ‘play by the rules’. The single peaked at number 3 in the UK singles charts.
Along with New Song, The first two albums, Humans Lib and Dream into Action, brought Howard a host of hits including Things Can Only Get Better, What is Love?, Pearl In The Shell, Like to Get To know You Well, Hide And Seek (performed at Live Aid), Look Mama and No One Is To Blame, which reached No.1 in the US.
Howard has sold over 8 million albums across the globe and is one of a select group of British artists who have comprehensively ‘broken America’.
Howard’s solo shows are an intimate trip through his 30 year music career.
