Heyward Howkins

Back in December, we spoke with singer-songwriter and Philadelphia native, Heyward Howkins about his debut LP, The Hale & Hearty. Now here we are, almost a year later and he’s just released his first full album as a solo artist.

Previously a member of The Trouble With Sweeney and The Silver Ages, Heyward has opened for My Morning Jacket, OK Go, and has twice landed on Rollingstone.com’s Editor’s Top Picks of the Year.

Be Frank, Furness takes you on a journey of attention grabbing arrangements intertwined with a lyrical honesty full with emotion. It beats a heart of folk over a soul of rock, topped with Heyward’s falsetto vocals that lie somewhere in-between those of Justin Vernon (Bon Iver) and Michael David Rosenberg (Passenger).

The album is available now on iTunes. You can also stream the full album below via Spotify.
