Ottawa Singer~Songwriter Howie Hooper is releasing his debut album. Driving and soul-wrenching country stylings combined with warm blues overtones. ” The Art of Procrastination ” a twelve song full length recording produced by Keith Glass, will be available January 27th.
” As I sat down watching the cream swirl in the blackness of my coffee cup, the deep voice of Howie Hooper began a country music serenade. He listens to Cash and Haggard and Kristofferson and looks like he should be running cattle somewhere down on a Texas ranch. Nothing is overdone and manufactured here. This is stripped down country. Pour your heart out into a glass to mix with your beer kind of country. Hooper sang songs that sounded like they were coming from a man who can actually can wear the lyrics like an old shirt, all comfortable like, where even the stains have a story or two to tell” Andre Gangne, Ottawa Life Magazine
