One of the founding fathers of Trip-Hop, Pussyfoot Records and his own children - Howie B had a busy 90's. Howie 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, writing soundtracks for five Chinese feature films in the last couple of years as well as scoring independent films including ‘Dollhouse’, ‘How To sell A Banksy’ and ‘Rabbit’ and most recently the end title music (co-written with Robbie Robertson and Matthew McConaughey)for Martin Scorsese’s film ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’.
The Scottish globe trotter has travelled the world searching for new and interesting talent to collaborate with and nurture. Most recently, Howie has been involved with musical charity Intermission in Asia, which helps young musicians find their way onto the stage.
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.
