Welcome to the official website of John Howard. This is where you can find info on John’s recordings, past, present and future, read about John’s career to date and his forthcoming plans, and email John if you have any questions, observations or comments about his work.


You can also now buy some of John’s albums exclusively via this website. Go to John’s Shop for the list of CDs available. There you’ll also find a simple-to-use form to fill in with information about how to buy the CDs you want, which when you’ve filled in all the required details you can then email to John direct with your order. You can either use PayPal or cheque. For album details, browse the discography where you will find links to how to buy the CDs and also an iTunes link to each album.


I am currently writing my Autobiography, Incidents Crowded With Life, which you can read online by clicking on the ‘Autobiography’ option at the top of the page. Covering my life and career, from growing up in 1950s Lancashire to now residing in Southern Spain, and everything that’s happened to me in between – and a lot has happened! –  it will be posted at fairly regular intervals, chapter by chapter. The book currently stands at seventeen chapters, which are listed down the right-hand side of the Autobiography page. Each chapter is named after a song of mine, and sometimes I end the chapter with a relevant video to the ‘Incidents’ just recounted. Hope you enjoy it.


In November 2016, my new album, ‘Across The Door Sill’ was released by Occultation Recordings on LP, CD and download. If you go to the ‘News’ section of the website you’ll find links and news about the album. I am currently (Spring 2017) writing new songs for the next album, which will also be released by Occultation Recordings, probably sometime in early 2018.
