Howard Jones’ career has always been about the big picture. The singer, songwriter and keyboardist’s songs explore universal themes including enlightenment, transcendence, and seeing past one’s struggles in order to embrace the wider horizon beyond it. He’s sold millions of albums and had 15 top-40 global singles. And while his music often overflows with addictive pop hooks, soaring vocals and creative arrangements, when you dig deeper, you’ll find those larger perspectives embedded within.

Jones remains a household name for anyone who grew up in the ‘80s and ‘90s. Global hits including “Things Can Only Get Better,” “No One is to Blame,” “What is Love?” and “New Song” are permanent parts of the pop culture tapestry of the era. Major movies and television shows including Breaking Bad, Bumblebee, GLOW, Eddie the Eagle, Halt and Catch Fire, and Everybody Hates Chris have featured them in recent times. His 1984 debut album Human’s Lib and the 1985 follow-up Dream into Action continue to transcend generations, with 2018 super-deluxe reissues on Cherry Red Records selling out based on pre-orders alone.

“I think the ‘80s work continues to resonate because it offers little chunks of philosophy to listeners,” said Jones. “People have taken the lyrics to heart and they’ve become part of who they are. It’s why I’ve always got a connection to my fans. There are people who say art can’t change the world, but that’s not my view. I think music and lyrics can have a profound effect on people. Otherwise, what’s the point in doing it?”

    Would absolutely love to go. In the late 80s he played just minutes from my home and so many of my friends went and I didn’t. :( Have always regretted it. Better late than never!

    I admire Howard Jones so much for being an amazing artist and human being. I love how he bought the first instrument from the fruit stand money he and his wife started!!!! He is so talented. I would absolutely love to go. I know all the old songs and can’t wait to hear the newest releases.

    Now that we survived the 80’s I wouldn’t mind a flash back. Thanks for the opportunity.
