“I have been the father of your son, I have been the mother of your dreams, I have been the brother of your heart, I have been the child you’ll always need…”
John Howard – Storeys (Kid in a Big World) 9/10
Like many, I was converted to the cause of singer-songwriter John Howard earlier this year by his new band, John Howard and the Night Mail. Their debut album received blanket positive reviews from critics, including in several of the larger music magazines. But this was only the latest stage in Howard’s recent renaissance. Perhaps the most logical step into Howard’s recent solo work is 2013’s self-released Storeys. Storeys remains Howard’s best selling solo album since his 1975 effort Kid in a Big World, released on CBS.
