Dave Howard

Which Dave Howard is this? Because if you go to Spotify you get all three of them...

Dave Howard is a singer-songwriter who has been active in the San Diego music scene since 1990. Howard was born in Philadelphia in 1963 and lived in New Jersey for the first few years of his life before moving with his single mom to Brooklyn, New York.

Dave was raised on good music starting in his toddler years, listening to Beatles 45s and the cream of 1960s folk, rock and show tunes that were shared by his older brother and his parents. As an adolescent in Brooklyn during the 70s, Dave was exposed to ethnic music like Puerto Rican salsa, reggae and afro-latin rhythms. Going to summer camp in upstate New York's Catskill Mountains exposed him to counselors who were into the Grateful Dead, New Riders, Frank Zappa, Pink Floyd, Yes and Emerson, Lake and Palmer. In the summer of 1977, Dave entered Edward R. Murrow High School and joined up with a whole new group of friends. Punk was oozing out of the brownstones and weekend visits to Greenwich Village introduced him to the Ramones, Heartbreakers, Patti Smith, Television, Talking Heads and Richard Hell. The Clash were getting radio play.

The point of all this is that young Dave Howard had an incredibly deep and wide musical palette
