Ben Howard Coachella Performance Raises His Profile in America

04/12/2013
.
(Radio.com) Ben Howard may not be a household name just yet, but a big tour with Mumford & Sons, two BRIT Awards for Best Male Solo Artist and British Breakthrough Act and a slot at this year's Coachella are sure to elevate his standing.

While the British singer-songwriter has been compared to Jack Johnson and Nick Drake, his music embodies a distinct darkness that sets him apart.

When Radio.com sat down with Howard, he told us the story behind "Oats In the Water," the haunting track off his 2012 EP The Burgh Island.

Gearing up for a set at Coachella this month, Howard continues to bring his music to the masses. Does he have what it takes to be recognized at, let's say, the GRAMMYs next year? Some industry experts seem to think so. Find out why Howard has been named New Music To Know. Watch the video interview here.
