For many of us, music is much more than just a form of expression. This
sentiment rings true for Australian musician Jay Howie. For him, music offers
an unadulterated emotional release; a profound outpouring of one’s soul that
fills the proverbial cup of each of Jay’s Blues compositions.
Influenced by an amalgamation of old delta Blues players, as well as the
Chicago Blues scene and British Blues of the late '60s and '70s, Jay's
approach to the genre is marked by his ability to thread together the
emotional fibres of his past, present and future.
His undeniable ability with the guitar is matched only by his raw vocal
palette, with his lyrics echoing insightful and heartfelt storytelling abilities.
He is currently sitting on a discography containing a full-length album (Tales
of Woe and Coincidence), an EP (Dirty Habits), and a single (Leaving Me). His
solo material has taken him across Australia, sharing the stage with the likes
of Ash Grunwald, Lloyd Spiegel and Dutch Tilders. Today, Jay continues to
position himself as a Blues artist to watch in the future.
