Christian Howse- The Letters Tour
Saturday, June 8
Silence, Guelph, Ontario
Christian is a singer-songwriter from Newfoundland who is making waves in the East Coast music scene.
With four solo albums to date, his raw talent and dedication to his craft shines through his music and earned him a 2018 Canadian Folk Music Award nomination for Young Performer of the Year.
Christian brings powerful performance to the stage. Most often described as a cross between Donovan Woods and Daniel Champagne, Christian is a storyteller who holds his audience captive with his unique brand of percussive finger style guitar. Christian illustrates a very raw and real depiction of the greatest fears, darkest feelings, and most beautiful revelations that we all come to feel, to some extent, throughout our lives. His songs are sure to leave you looking inward, seeing a bit of your hidden self in every word.
“This album has a more connected feeling than any other collection of songs that I’ve written before. Picking up where Long Distance left off, the songs of Letters look back to start picking up the pieces and to rekindle what remains. Reaching out, playfully or with curious intent, to find answers in the interesting people and beautiful places of the past. Like puzzle pieces strewn across the ground. How the one you need is the first you pick, but only when it’s the last piece in the pile.”
The Newfoundland Herald calls Howse a “musical prodigy….embarrassingly talented…” and “everything you want in an artist.”
Canadian icon, George Canyon says “Christian’s raw talent and ability is staggering. His guitar work is very unique and when combined with the lyrics and vocal it is a killer package.”
