Jack Howard's extensive and exemplary musical career probably took off in 1981 when he joined Melbourne art/funk pub/rock group Hunters & Collectors.
Jack's horn playing has also graced numerous recordings by other artists and playing live with many bands including The Violent Femmes and The Living End and for the past 15 years he's been releasing his own highly regarded albums.
Jack Howard has introduced 2 of those albums on And This One's Introduced By... Dog Songs a companion album to Jack's biography Small Moments Of Glory was a best of collection of songs played at the Dog's Bar in St KIlda where Jack and his band The Long Lost Brothers played a residency for over 4 years.
His solo album Secrets & White Lies was released through Stuart Coupe's Laughing Outlaw records and reissued in 2021 via bandcamp.
Both those radio shows can be accessed and streamed from the 3cr website at 3cr.org.au/introducedby.
Jack Howard is also responsible for this radio show's theme tune at the beginning and end of each week's program which he kindly wrote and recorded.
Jack Howard's new album is Lightheavyweight 2 written during our lockdown year of discontent and draws mostly on his St. Kilda/Elwood life, a sonic treat full of dark propulsive grooves and rich melodic horns.
The album will be launched at St Kilda's Memo Music Hall on Saturday 19th November as part of a triple bill album launch with Catherine McQuade's Kiss Him Goodbye featured on last weeks radio program and Rosie Westbrook launching her third album Always The Sea.
