ARTIST TO WATCH: Russell Howard

Russell Howard

Singer-Songwriter Russell Howard

Like a cross between early John Mayer and the seasoned songwriting chops of Josh Rouse, Russell Howard’s “Home Sweet Home” is one of those rare folk tracks which immediately sinks in and demands further exploration of an artist’s songwriting in general. It’s astounding that this songwriter, who fully embraces the vintage folk roots which inspire his music, hasn’t gotten more widespread press for his latest album City Heart. This is folk music with enough pop edge to ensure fans will keep coming back for more — the hook in the chorus is impossible to deny. “Home sweet home is in your arms,” Howard sings. “I did not ask to cross my stars with you.” We may not have known to ask for music from Russell Howard, but one listen is enough to guarantee he’ll have an audience for life. This is the kind of music internet word of mouth was made for!
