Melbourne artist HOWQUA will be showcasing his new single ‘Her’ at the Stag & Hunter in Mayfield tomorrow night (July 9). Having just returned from a successful international trip for Canadian Music Week, we quickly came up with 5 reasons we think you need to see this artist.
1 – HOWQUA’s debut EP Naked was handpicked by Spotify as a featured release
Co-produced by Hayden Calnin and mixed by Tim Carr, ‘Her’ is taken from HOWQUA’s debut EP Naked that was released independently in AU/NZ at the end of 2014. The EP was handpicked by Spotify and added to the ‘New Releases’ section, helping HOWQUA sell out his first hometown headline show in pre-sales.
2 – Award winning producer Steve Lillywhite says HOWQUA is one Australian artist to watch
“HOWQUA, a Melbourne songwriter, is one to watch. He’s just returned from performing at Canadian Music Week, and his single ‘Fishing for Gold’ is great. This was mixed at Studios 301 where I was as part of the VIVID LIVE forums early in June.” – Steve Lillywhite (Six time Grammy Award winning producer – U2 & The Rolling Stones)
3 – HOWQUA will be supported by the amazingly talented, Jason Lowe
Jason’s live shows are an experience like no other, and embody an emotion, poetic and musical power, and wisdom that have been likened only to such greats as his heroes Joni Mitchell and Neil Young. The former of which he had the honor to meet, an enchanting story that fans delight to hear at his live shows.
WHEN: Thursday July 9
