NICK HOWARD BIO
Nick Howard could never be accused of sitting still. Following a 2 year stretch in which the British singer-songwriter has played 300 shows across Europe and the US, enjoyed his first number 1, packed in several headlining tours and even managed to learn German in two months and win the hugely popular TV show The Voice of Germany, Nick Howard is set to release his fourth and latest album ‘Living In Stereo’ in the US following a hugely successful European release.
‘Living In Stereo’ includes his hit single 'Untouchable' (co-written and produced with Grammy nominated writer/producer Toby Gad) which was released in Europe at the beginning of the year and has been supported by fantastic radio play & several notable TV appearances including a performance in front of 1 million people at the Brandenburg Gate on New Year's Eve. The single reached the Top 10 on the German radio charts (the only independent release in the Top 20), made the Top 10 in Italy where it was the most played independent song on Italian radio.
Nick’s musical journey began in New York, where he had moved as a 21 year old to pursue his music career. He spent several years working various 9-5 jobs (secretly booking gigs and writing songs whilst pretending to work) in addition to working as a waiter and bartender at night (where he claims he was the worst bartender in the city) to support his dream. He would write, record and perform whenever and wherever possible (he jokes that his first show was at such an obscure venue that even the Google van couldn't find it) and by having his music used over 40 times in TV shows such as The Hills, Jersey Shore, Pretty Little Liars, Switched at Birth, Army Wives, LA Ink and 90210, Nick was able to support himself as an independent artist.
After touring with bands such as Lifehouse & Boyce Avenue in Europe and supporting the likes of Train and Gavin DeGraw in the US, Nick managed to build a loyal fan base in both continents and auditioned for 'The Voice of Germany' as a way to introduce his music to a bigger audience, choosing Germany because his fans there were the first to embrace and support his music. Nick learned to speak German just two months before the first show.
After several months of writing and recording in Los Angeles, London, New York and Nashville in 2013, Nick has spent most of 2014 on the road in the US and Europe promoting his new material, playing over 250 shows to over 100,000 fans all over the world.
Nick is currently supporting Eric Hutchinson and Tristan Prettyman on their 6 week, 31 city US tour, a precursor to his first US headlining tour in April 2015.
Catch Nick at a live show while you can, he doesn’t sit still for long.less
