Biography:


Grammy Award Winner, Howard Hewett has been one of the most influential and consistent voices of the past three decades. Whether in a group setting, a guest vocalist or as a solo artist, Hewett's recognizable and virtually irresistible voice has wrapped itself around an array of musical moments; turning good songs into great records and great records into lifetime standards. Howard began his musical roots in Akron, Ohio at the age of 10. He sang with his sisters in a family gospel group called the Hewett Singers. At age 15, Hewett, along with a few school buddies formed a top 40’s R&B Funk Group called LYFE. In 1976, he relocated to Los Angeles. Not long after arriving in LA, he connected with John and Alonzo Daniels who owned a legendary night spot in the LA Crenshaw District called Maverick’s Flat. John Daniels also showcased groups in his club, one of which was called Beverly Hills. Hewett toured overseas with the group from 1977 to 1979, performing in front of audiences throughout Europe, Scandinavia, Asia and the UK. Howard later became the lead singer and third member of Shalamar with Jeffrey Daniels and Jody Watley. Shalamar graced the charts with hit after hit; such as, “A Night to Remember,” “For the Lover in You,” “Make that Move” and” Second Time Around.” Hewett departed for a solo career in 1985. He signed with Elektra, debuting his first single "I'm for Real." It was in the top five on the Billboard R &B charts in 1986. His follow-up single "Stay" also made the Top Ten, while "I Commit to Love," in 1987 reached number 12. Hewett also co-wrote and produced his inspirational composition "Say Amen,” which remains one of his signature songs. Howard also participated in major motion picture soundtracks; such as Foot Loose, The Five Heartbeats and Beverly Hills Cop; which he received a Grammy for “Don’t Get Stopped in Beverly Hills.” Hewett continued on with Elektra throughout the mid '80's and early '90's, garnering hits such as "Strange Relationship," “Once, Twice, Three Times” and “Show Me.” His list of albums consist of “I Commit To Love,” “Forever and Ever,” self-titled “Howard Hewett,” “Its Time,” “Allegiance,” “The Journey,” “Intimates: Greatest Hits” and “If Only,” not to mention cutting duets with many legendary female recording artists who are no strangers to topping the charts; Dionne Warwick, Anita Baker, Stacy Latisaw, Roberta Flack, and Tina Marie. He continues to hone in craft, as he is consistently writing, producing and performing; appearing on projects with the late George Duke, as well as Stanley Clarke, Brian Culbertson, Joe Sample, Gerald Albright, Kirk Whalum and many others. Howard is currently working on his new album. His new single “You Still Live Inside of Me” is available on iTunes, Google play and Amazon. Although it is a bit of a departure from the strong R&B groove, it is refreshing to hear another side of. This is yet another beautiful ballad, but with elements of both soul and country. “You Still Live Inside of Me” is a nice progression for Howard; his fans are in for a real treat.
