Introducing The Ascended Man: Scott Howard
Scott Howard is riding a musical wave on a path to enlightenment, with his latest album ‘The Ascended Man’ tuned to 432 Hz, the same frequency as the formerly ascended genius’ of our world such as Mozart, Beethoven and Bach. His sound, though, is not classical; Scott Howard’s music is a fine-tuned cornucopia of rock, adult contemporary and pop with soul inspiring lyrics under a smooth harmonious voice reminiscent of Cat Stevens or Crosby, Stills & Nash. Catchy and vibrant, anyone looking for depth and spirit will vibe with the various tunes on Howard’s album, although a closer look will provide a glimpse into a world of intricate philosophies, ancient secrets, and a boatload of mystery.
Howard’s path seems as though it were written in the stars. Born to a entrepreneurial opera star in New York State, Scott Howard’s mother began the Long Island Lyric Opera Company which torpedoed him into the world of inspiring, finely tuned, and well organized music. Before letters, Howard learned to read and write music, and quickly began playing any instrument which had the pleasure to cross his path. Trumpet, tuba, guitar, and keyboards are only a few of many Scott Howard has learned to play in his ever-expanding musical journey. His first band, The Gemini Five, formed of neighborhood friends, began his love of playing with others and sharing the joy of mathematical perfection that is the harmony of music.
In the meandering walk of life, though, Scott Howard has worn many hats. While working as a high-powered executive for several different business entities, getting married and having children, experiencing the trials of divorce and the extreme heart break of losing his son, his bittersweet human experience has provided Howard with an insatiable empathy for his fellow man which immediately attracts listeners and opens their minds as well as hearts. “I believe we are all going through things, good and bad, and music is always a comfort to lean on so I put my soul into every melody and lyric that I write,” he says. From the multitude of outreach, he receives from fans, it is clear that his approach is delivering just what the masses are looking for.
Scott Howard has released three full albums including his latest, “Ascended Man,” on which he has worked with major players in the industry such as hitmaker Producer, Marc Tanner (Madonna, Aerosmith) and multi-Grammy winner and legendary engineer/mixer, (David Bowie, John Lennon, Bruce Springsteen, Santana, Rob Thomas). Howard, who has performed at top tier venues throughout the country, awaits the day when he can fulfill his ultimate goal of performing at the pyramids in Giza, Egypt. “There is nothing more important to me that performing, offering joy and connecting with my fans.” says Howard, who is changing the world with literally uplifting and inspiring songs that promote healing and happiness for every listener.
