The musical contribution of John Howard is well documented.
Howard emerged as part of the glam-pop wave of the early 1970s, recording three albums for CBS --- the second of which ("Can You Hear Me OK?") was quickly shelved and the third of which ("Technicolour Biography") never saw the light of day.
After leaving CBS in 1976, Howard continued to record numerous singles but --- eventually growing wearing of it all --- more or less stopped recording in the early 80s and moved to the A&R side.
In 2003, Cherry Red --- on its RPM label --- re-issued Howard's 1974 debut album, "Kid in a Big World," and quickly followed that with re-issues of his other two CBS projects.
This rediscovery of Howard's music after nearly 30 years led Howard to rediscover his own creative muse.
Since 2004, Howard has recorded six albums (plus a handful of EPs) of new material --- initially on small labels like Cherry Red but lately on his own imprint.
The latest album, "Exhibiting Tendencies," had its iTunes release a couple of weeks ago. The CD release is in May.
