Biography

Dylan Howe grew up in Hampstead, London.
He is the son of guitarist Steve Howe (of Yes)—his father named him after Dylan Thomas. The guitar instrumental “Clap” was written for Dylan.

Howe attended King Alfred School (KAS) from 1975 to 1986. He started playing aged 10 and is mainly self-taught. He studied for a small period of time with UK teaching great Bob Armstrong and had a few afternoons tuition in the early 1990’s with Bill Bruford (who worked with his father in Yes) and Jonathan Mover.

Throughout 1977 Dylan lived with his family in Montreux, Switzerland whilst his father recorded the Yes album Going For The One . It was during this time Dylan first went to the Montreux jazz festival.
When Dylan was 13 his parents took him to see Buddy Rich and his big band at Ronnie Scott’s club, he cites this as the moment when he knew that he wanted to become a jazz drummer.
Throughout his teens DH played in various groups with classmates from KAS and surrounding schools in North London. His first gigs were at KAS (1981) and UCS (1982) schools in Hampstead. The groups repertoires mainly consisted of covers of Clash, Bowie, Bauhaus and U2 songs, with a few original compositions. Dylan left KAS with three O’ level passes in 1986. He worked as a window cleaner and sales assistant in various shops (Katherine Hamnett and others) until 1988 when he started working as a musician professionally.
