For nearly 35 years, Steve Howe
has been at the forefront of guitarists in popular
music. Actually, simply referring to Howe as a just
a guitarist is limiting. In addition to being a songwriter,
he plays more instruments than just the guitar. If
it has strings and a fretboard, Howe has mastered
it and recorded with it at some point on one of countless
albums he's been a part of as a group member, solo
artist and special guest.
Stephen James Howe was born in Holloway, North London,
England. The youngest of four children, music was
a constant from Steve's early age; he was an energetic
child, marching to 78 RPM records of brass bands that
he played on the family record player.
