Join the Fun - Fund the Album

Northern Roots - Southern Soul

An exciting album project is underway. Produced by Tom Easley (Formerly with MALACO Records, the Last Soul Company). The sound has been labeled "The Jackson Sound - New Vintage" and is soulful Americana spiced up with jazz, blues and folk rock. Add Native American flute and you have Howie Music at it's best.

Four songs are complete. Eight more are in progress and we're looking at a mid June release date.

We would love you to be a part. How? Funding the project is most needed.


1)  How would you like to go on tour with us for an evening?
For a donation of $500.  We will pick you up in our tour mini-bus where you will travel with us to a gig. After the show we will return you to home. Note:  you must live within 30 miles of the venue. Only two per show available.

2) Ever wonder what a real recording session is like? How would you like to be there, in person?
For a donation of $10,000. you can attend one day of a recording or mixing session. You'll need to purchase an airline ticket to Jackson, MS. We will pick you up at the airport in our touring mini-bus, take you to your hotel room the evening before the session. Next day we will take you to AVA Studio in Raymond, MS where you'll meet the musicians and have the opportunity to (quietly) sit through the session that day. Afterward you will be taken to either the airport or your room, then on to your flight home. How cool is that?!!! Only two available. Deadline May 20, 2022.

3) Donations of $20. I will email you an unreleased mp3 of one song. For $40. two unreleased songs. $60. will get you three unreleased songs. All mp3.

4) For a donation of $100 we will give you a USB stick with the four songs already finished, PLUS a video of Howie & Debbie personally thanking you, with an original Howie flute song playing in the background.

Yes, this is an expensive project. It is the first time I've had a producer for a really great sounding album. One song from the project has been released already and you can listen below. It's called Back Country Fun.

Recording is taking place May 13 - 20, 2022, so time is of the essence.

about the album

Does the world need more music? YES! What the world needs is uplifting, positive, good time music. That's what this project is all about.

Dynamite musicians, well written fun songs, quality studio and experienced engineers are all in the mix to produce a seriously great sound. New Vintage is what it's been labeled.

Tom Easley of AVA Entertainment in Raymond, Mississippi is my producer. He and Geri O'Neil are mixing the songs, four of which have been recorded already.

Back Country Fun is the first one released and it sounds so good!

My plan is to record six more songs to complete an album. To do this more funding is needed.

Soon I'll be heading to Raymond, Mississippi to finish up the album. Tom Easley, Geri O'Neil, Sam Brady, Vince Barranco, Jewell Bass, Thomisine Anderson, Monica Shepherd, Malcolm Shepherd and of course Debbie Campbell did a fabulous job on the first round. Now we're working on the final eight.

Exciting news! We'll be adding a horn section similar to the Muscle Shoals sound. Kimble Funches will be playing trumpet and arranging the section. This is turning into one dynamite sounding record!
