Kev Howell

Kev Howell has been busy perfecting his own signature sound as an independent Singer- Songwriter.  His impressive slide guitar and the use of alternate tunings have helped to create blues-rock and folk influenced songs with captivating, often hypnotic soundscapes, which have featured on various stations worldwide, including BBC Introducing in the UK.  The debut album Haunting Ambition was nominated for a SAY Award (Scottish Album of the Year) and continues to attract an ever growing fanbase. The lead Single 'Kamikaze' was described as “Bewitching and sublime” in a U.S review, and was subsequently shared on Black Rebel Motorcycle Club's website in 2018.


Since 2021 , not long after the shutdown of the pandemic, Kev has self-released the singles Arrows and Longnor, followed by a 6 track Live Ep recorded at Nice N Sleazy in Glasgow (Soundcloud or Spotify). 

Kev spent most of 2023 in Maybank Studios with Matt Harvey, working on his second album and is currently planning his release date and launch.

Past supports include, Bill Ryder-Jones, Gerry Cinnamon, Danny Bryant, Ben Ottewell, John Power, and The Glorious Sons.


Kev Howell will release his sophomore album and other new material in 2024.

Longnor Single



Released in October 2021, Longnor gives an idea of what Kev Howell does best. The melody is layered to perfection with a shuffling beat that has you tapping to it and a guitar that soars through your brain.

Arrows Single



There is no doubt that Kev Howell is a musician that’s here to stay. With his single "Arrows," Kev Howell expresses such pensive lyricism that pushes conceptual boundaries and reminds us that we're not alone. - Buzz L.A
