Ones to Watch in 2012: Ben Howard

Ben Howard

Have you heard of Ben Howard?  Until recently, neither had I (although a song of his, "Promise" did appear in an episode of House this season).  Try as I might to remain ahead of the curve when it comes to quality UK music, this talented guy slipped by unseen and unheard.  Hey, it happens! There's just so much good stuff coming out of the UK these days that I can't keep track of it all. Well, as it turns out, now is as good a time as any to do a write up because his album, Every Kingdom, was recently released here in America.  Not only that, but Ben Howard is about ready to embark on a little tour out West (sorry East Coast, we missed our shot).
