Ben Howard was born in London on 24 April 1987. He is an English singer-songwriter and is now based in Totnes, Devon. When still young he was influenced by the favourite records his parents exposed him to. From divas like Nina Simone to singer-songwriter artists such as Bob Dylan, Van Morrison and Simon and Garfunkel, all had an influence on this talented young man. Howard first tried a career in journalism but in 2009 made the brave decision to become a full-time musician and has never looked back. He has already won 2 gongs at the BRIT awards in 2013.
