Howard Jones

Howard Jones burst onto the 1980s pop scene with iconic synth-pop singles such as New Song and What is Love?. Uniquely for the time, Howard was a "self-contained" act, utilising cutting edge technology to enable him to write, record, compose and perform his own songs.

Howard Jones popularised such as 1980s icons as the "Keytar" and the headset-worn microphone. Conjure up the image of the archetypal 80s keyboard playing pop-star, and the chances are it's Howard Jones who springs to mind!

 

Howard forged an enviable career throughout the 1980s and on into the 1990s and beyond. He was a performer at the legendary Live Aid concert at Wembley Stadium in 1985 as well as a Grammy performance in the same year. Howard Jones has forged a career which would be the envy of any solo performer.

Pioneering a "DIY" ethic, very much the forerunner to the way many artists and musicians create and publish music today, Howard has continued to be a progressive artist into the 21st century. 

We're honoured to be the choice of Howard Jones when he performs live, alongside his long-standing collaborator and live keyboard player, Robbie Bronnimann. At the time of writing, Howard has been out on a UK tour using a number of iConnectAUDIO4+ Audio/MIDI interfaces.
