80s Synth Hero To Play The Epstein

ENJOY a trip through the 30-year music career of Howard Jones at The Epstein Theatre on Friday, 12th February. Howard Jones Solo features an evening of songs and stories with Howard Jones supported by Elise Yuill. This intimate solo show will see Howard performing acoustic and sharing behind the scenes stories and the inspiration behind his songs. Howard Jones first burst upon the contemporary music scene in 1983 with his very English songwriting, pioneering synthesizers and thought provoking lyrics. He set out his manifesto in his very first single New Song. The lyrics called on the listener to challenge their preconceived ideas, to see both sides and “throw off your mental chains.” New Song was recently used in a pivotal scene in Breaking Bad where Aaron Paul’s character, Jessie Pinkman, questions if he wants to “play by the rules.” New Song peaked at number three in the UK singles charts. Along with New Song, the first two albums, Humans Lib and Dream into Action, brought Howard a host of hits including Things Can Only Get Better, What is Love? Pearl in The Shell, Like to Get to Know You Well, Hide and Seek (performed at Live Aid), Look Mama and No One is To Blame which reached number one in the US. Howard has sold over 8million albums across the globe and is one of a select group of British artists who have comprehensively ‘broken America.’ Many of his best known songs were composed on his favourite instrument, the piano. Howard is supported by Elise Yuill, an artist supported by his Dtox record label. Elise is a Devon-based singer/songwriter who is fast becoming a recognised name within the world of contemporary folk music. Following successful shows at Glastonbury Festival, Elise will be performing songs from her debut album which is due for release this year.
