New single released today!

This is my first release in 5 years. It seems I had some barriers to overcome to get here. It’s only a single, but it’s a start. If you can help with listens, playlist adds, shares, whatever, that would be amazing. You should be able to hear it wherever you normally listen to music, and I’ll post some links

“This song is an emotional, simple acoustic guitar expression of loss, hope, love and ultimately the wonder of life. Howe continues to draw inspiration from a very deep well”.

East Meets West

The Siberian airmass arrived on the very Western edge of Wales this week, bringing with it snows, ice, and thousands upon thousands of birds we rarely see in such numbers. Redwing, lapwing, fieldfare and golden plover driven to the edge of the country in search of food and shelter from the storm.

So for the first time in years not only were there thousands of unusual birds on the beach, there was snow too!

This is the same beach (Marloes Sands, photo Mike Alexander) in summer…….

Thoughts, deeds, music

Up here, on the roof of Snowdonia, we have restored the blanket bog and protected the largest and deepest area of peat in Wales. Not only is this good for increasingly rare birds such as curlew and hen harrier, but it locks up more carbon than all of the woodlands in Wales combined, and stops it from being released into the atmosphere.

This is also the place where I first thought of this tune, which bizzarely went on to be nominated at the Hollywood Music in Media Awards, two very different worlds. But that’s the power of music I guess……

Remember

Once upon a time in the west

I used some acoustic instruments to create a rustic, folksy sound to evoke hard times gone by in the American west
