I hitchhiked in Costa Rica for almost two months a couple years ago.

Howard's songwriting abilities are sensational, and he's a rare case of a mainstream British singer/songwriter that has improved over time to become a genuine gem.

Standout: Rivers in your mouth
Favs: Time is Dancing, Conrad, In Dreams, She treats me well, End of the Affair, Small things
Least fav: I forget where we were

Absolutely perfect.

Excelente pop acústico, al principio parecía ser solo talento en guitarra, pero también tiene toques creativos
