RELEASES 10/23/2020! This Covid-pandemic album was composed and recorded by multi-instrumentalist, Jim Howell, from March-August 2020. Burned down and bled out, the hearts and souls of our nation are determined to overthrow the establishment of hate, greed, and self-service. Four years into regression from the promise of hope and lack of change that preceded, the struggle continues. Love will win but what price will be paid with the grief and isolation that pervades. The glimmer of hope still soars with love embroidered upon its wings. The Jim Howell Band’s new album, Crooked Arrow is all of those emotions. This new release takes you on a thirty-two minute journey through the feelings and thoughts that weigh during isolated quarantine while the culture and political wars rage in the streets and on the TV. Crooked Arrow leaves room for optimism yet shortens no punches all while resigned to the dim inevitability of modern angst.

About

Jim Howell

Bio

Bleedin' Heart music video released on 1/1/2020. Who knew we'd see some of the issues brought up in the lyric and video visuals amplified in the spring of 2020?! Amidst social unrest, global pandemic and economic depression, Jim has been safely quarantining with his family in their midtown Tucson home while being an ally and supporting various social causes. He teaches music virtually for his alma mater, Salpointe Catholic HS. Meanwhile, Jim has completed a new full-length album to be released October 23rd, 2020, entitled "Crooked Arrow".

Raised from the caliche bound floor of the Sonoran Desert, Jim Howell draws from the duality of human life, hope in the sink of depression, light peering through evil, and achievement measured by lowered expectations. Burn It Down Bleedin' Heart is a mantra for the self and a call to others to join together. A plea to humbly brandish the heart that bleeds for humankind resist the bullies and burn down the establishment of hate, mistrust and self-service.

Jim has released two previous efforts that were combined band and solo performances. On the latest album Jim holed up in his midtown Tucson recording studio and poured out the songs, performed and recorded all musical instruments and vocals himself during the first quarter of 2018. The process was both labor of love and an exorcism of the emotions of 2017 at once. It was a fast and furious experience with no time spent rethinking or second guessing ideas. With the sum of additional knowledge from earlier recording projects and the focus of isolated determination, this proves to be Jim's strongest songs and sound yet. For sure this collection of songs are at least the most sincere and true to his own voice.
