Profile
Howard Michael Jones (known in music as John Howard) is a British singer-songwriter and pianist, born 1953 in Bury near Lancashire, England. By the mid 80s, Howard had stopped recording and moved to the business side of music, where he forged a successful career in A&R for fifteen years, before "retiring" in 2000. A revival of interest in Howard's early work resulted in a second stage of creative output, recording and releasing more than seven albums' worth of new material from 2004 to the present.
