Lauded British singer-songwriter Ben Howard is set to support Mumford & Sons on the February portion of their 2013 world tour, in addition to his solo performance at Terminal 5 in New York City on February 18. See details below. The musician’s celebrated live performances have resulted in back-to-back sell-out tours, both overseas and stateside. In the past year Howard appeared at festivals worldwide, including SXSW, Sasquatch! Music Festival, Bonnaroo and Austin City Limits. Of his live set, KCRW explains “[he] has the audience in musical awe.”
Howard’s The Burgh Island E.P. is out now—having debuted #1 on iTunes in the U.K. and top 30 on iTunes in the U.S. The new music is also available as limited edition vinyl from The video for the premiere track “Esmerelda” can be streamed/shared at
Howard continues to bask in acclaim from his breakout year, which includes a Mercury Prize “Album of the Year” nomination and appearances on “The Late Show with David Letterman” and “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” His debut album Every Kingdom, now certified Platinum in the U.K., garnered attention with the The New York Times hailing, “Howard’s songs…cascade from his fingers, gathering words and melodies as they go, carrying his reedy, tremulous voice as their crescendos surge,” and NYLON Guys admiring “a mélange of intricate acoustic guitar work and sweet, hum-along choruses.” Furthermore, NY Daily News praised the record as “fired by flinty textures of guitar,” while Philadelphia Inquirer described it as “touched by tender lyricism.”
