About Greg Howe:
Greg Howe started playing the guitar at the age of 10 and by his middle teens, after discovering Van Halen, became obsessed with the guitar. By his late teens he had already begun playing in clubs with his rock band, which featured his brother Al on lead vocals. Over the course of the next few years Greg continued to hone his guitar skills while playing and performing a repertoire of mostly cover tunes for audiences in clubs throughout the North East with his rock band. Greg’s second solo album (1993's "Introspection") set the tone for what would eventually become a series of eight fresh forays in to the mosaic of fusion, rock, funk, blues, and jazz.
With each subsequent album Howe has made bolder and more satisfying strides into fusion music. Greg recently released his latest album in 2008 entitled “Sound Proof”, which has been arguably reviewed as one of Howe’s best albums ever while his self-entitled album “Greg Howe” was just recently named #10 in the top ten shred albums of all times by Guitar World Magazine. Greg has also made himself available as sideman for pop superstars. He filled in for guitarist Jennifer Batten in 1996 on Michael Jackson's History tour throughout Europe and Asia and in February 2009 teamed back up with Justin Timberlake to perform at the 51st Grammy’s Award Show.
