Biography

Howard Kern “Howie” Day (born January 15, 1981) is an American singer-songwriter. Beginning his career as a solo artist in the late 1990s, Day became known for his extensive touring and in-concert use of samplers and effects pedals in order to accompany himself. He self-financed and self-released his first album, Australia, in 2000.

Day eventually signed a recording contract with major label Epic Records in 2002 and has since re-released his debut as well as producing a follow up, Stop All The World Now. Despite initially sluggish sales, Stop All The World Now was certified gold in early 2005 and has produced a number of singles, including “Collide”, Day’s most successful to date, and the hit “She Says”. The track became Epic Records’ first platinum single, eventually selling 1.5 million downloads.

After a five year tour before the release of Stop All The World Now followed by a three year tour, Day took some time off and focused on writing music. Since then Day released his Be There EP in May 2009 which will be followed by Sound The Alarm in September 2009.

Stop All the World Now (2003–2008)

After the EP’s release, Day relocated to London, England to record Australia’s follow up, which was provisionally titled From a Northern Sky. The album, which would eventually become Stop All The World Now, was recorded in London’s famous Olympic Studios with Martin “Youth” Glover, the bassist for British band Killing Joke, whose previous production credits included The Verve’s Urban Hymns, one of Howie’s favorite albums.
