Our Story

Welcome to Kevin Howard Music, and thanks for taking the time to visit. This is a site dedicated to Kevin Howard, a full time singer-songwriter and cover musician from the Hartford / Central CT area. 

Kevin has been playing music and guitar since the ripe age of 10, with early influences coming from amazing artists such as U2, Guns N Roses, Dave Matthews Band, Pearl Jam, Sublime, Jeff Buckley, and Dashboard Confessional, to name a few.

Over the past 8 years, Kevin has entertained 10's of thousands, with a relentless show schedule all over New England and the East Coast, having played an average of 150 shows a year during that time.
