Above: Graphic of Musical Artist Howard Jones.
It was in 1983 that Howard Jones first burst upon the contemporary music scene and brought his very English song-writing and pioneering synthesizers to an unsuspecting world. Anyone who was around in the mid to late eighties will remember those high energy gigs and his first two albums "Human’s Lib" and "Dream into Action."
Always one to take chances, Jones continues to write great songs inspired by his Buddhist beliefs as is evident on his latest studio album "Ordinary Heroes" which features a string quartet on every track and one of the best Welsh male voice choirs in the world The Morriston on the song "Soon You’ll Go."
But 2011 will mark the return of one of the true eighties icons and godfathers of modern electronic dance music in full electric mode. If you were too young the first time around it’ll be a chance to find out where all those beats and sounds came from, and if you were around it’ll bring all those memories flooding back.
