Christian Howse is a young artist from central Newfoundland, emerging new on the scene last summer. He is proud to add to his list of accomplishments a nomination for Folk/Roots artist of the year 2017 with Music NL. Having performed on a small scale for the last two years, Christian has played on such stages as The Citadel House, Shaun Majumder’s “The Gathering”, and the Cape St Mary’s Performance Series.
Growing up listening to a wide range of music, Christian is a multi-instrumentalist, playing instruments including the banjo, accordion, mandolin, clarinet, and guitar. Influenced by the technical guitar work of Jon Gomm, and the raw, honest lyricism of artists such as Against Me! and the late Erik Petersen, Christian brings a powerful performance to the stage. Drawing from the genres of punk, folk, and math-rock, he has developed a unique brand of percussive finger style guitar.
After signing a multi-year recording deal with The Citadel House, Christian released his debut EP, “Cardiac”. With a passion for storytelling, and a love for telling it how it is, Christian illustrates a very raw and real depiction of the greatest fears, darkest feelings, and most beautiful revelations that we all come to feel, to some extent, throughout our lives. These songs are sure to leave you looking inward, seeing a bit of your hidden self in every word.
