PM Howard is an accomplished Singer, Guitarist and Bassist.
I sing and play a wide variety of music including Standards, Pop, Rock & Oldies and Country. Using my sequencer for accompaniment, I am a virtual One Man Band.
PM also currently sings Standards with a couple of Big Bands, which is something he has always wanted to do and feels he is well suited. My specialty is the Standards of the Great American Songbook – as well as Pop, Rock & Oldies and a complete repertoire of Classic Country.
He is also still performing as a free lance bass player.
Recently, P.M. has added a “Tribute to Dino” to his repertoire, both as a solo project and in several Rat Pack productions.
P.M. Howard hails from the Toronto area where he sang and played guitar in bars and coffee houses, as a soloist and band leader. I’m also an actor with over 40 years of experience in the theatre. As an actor he played all across Canada and the US in shows like the Canadian Rock Theatre and the Collected Works of Billy the Kid. After moving to LA in the mid 70s, he headed for Broadway, playing the part of George in the original production of Beatle mania. P.M. continued his dual track career, in theatrical productions such as Violet and The Last Session, and also as a working musician as bandleader and Bass player of the Country Dance Band, Purple Sky, back in the 80s and 90s in Southern California. He is currently free lancing with several different bands and is always looking to network with more.
PM’s Album Release
PM credits his little brother “Dave Howard” who arranged and produced PM’s personal album which is available to listen to on Reverb Nation. “This is an album that my brother Dave and I worked on for years”. I sing and play guitar. Most of the bass lines were played by me on a midi guitar. Gary Brandin came in and did a stellar pedal steel part for “Night Life.” Everything else was arranged and played by my brother Dave Howard (percussion, strings, horns, keyboard).
When I first started working up the Standards back in the early 80s, everybody said I was crazy – no one wanted to listen to their parents’ music. Then Ronstadt did her first album with Nelson Riddle and all of a sudden, this music was cool. It took me many years to get this project together and done and I owe it all to my brother, Dave. In many ways, this is more his album than mine.”
