Glasgow based singer-songwriter Kev Howell has recently released his debut album, Haunting Ambition, which is available now via all major media providers.
After beginning writing original material back in 2014 with an old 8-track machine, some Cubase software, and a lot of ambition and talent, Kev Howell has come a long way. Over the past 3 years, Kev has grown a solid and dedicated fanbase and gained support slots for the likes of Ben Ottewell and Bill Ryder-Jones.
With music styling that range from soft and somber to dark and brooding this album runs the a gambit of emotions, deep inner secrets coming to light while others slip away into the darknes, not to be seen, but heard and felt. Here is a sample of a Genius work called Kamikaze, while this is, I think one of the most imaginative and ambitions of tracks, there is Sniper’s Blues, a mix of hard rock, blues influence and yet a subtle heavy metal tone. other tracks I suggest you take a close look at are Nightbird, Black Tooth, Ode to an Angel and Grave Lament.
Inspired by the likes of The Beatles, Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd, Haunting Ambition boasts 9 alternative rock tracks, driven by melodic guitar chords and a haunting and distinctive vocal line.
In quote Kev has said he is “Influenced by the Blues and all things psychedelic, accounting for the almost hypnotic nature of the songs”.
