One of the founding fathers of Trip-Hop and Pussyfoot Records – Howie B is a hugely well-respected composer, a musical shapeshifter who has worked his way through countless genres. Having worked with the likes of U2, Bjork, Robbie Robertson, Brian Eno, Sly and Robbie, Massive Attack and Soul II Soul – Howie has become a respected go-to for production and cinematic composition.
His output has grown ever more diverse in scope in recent years, with projects including creating a score for a show at the Milan Planetarium, collaborating with massive brands Maserati, Bowers and Wilkins and Range Rover.
Howie has written soundtracks for a large number of Chinese feature films in the last couple of years as well as scoring independent films including ‘Dollhouse’, ‘How To Sell A Banksy’ and ‘Rabbit’ including the end title music (co-written with Robbie Robertson and Matthew McConaughey) for Martin Scorsese’s film ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’.
Now you can find him on a small island in France living as a musical nomad, creating magnificent Chinese film scores and beautiful experimental music of his own.
