john howay's guitar and vocal stylings draw upon upon a broad exposure to scandinavian farm animals and time spent on the edge of the grand canyon. though his first singing experiences were in the school choir, he ditched the robes, grew his hair long and joined a band while living in arizona. he continued to sing and write songs with the fusion groove band, fly, in northern california until his untimely arrival in northern virginia. thanks to good training from john howay's three sisters, he can legitimately claim to be the most sensitive guy/lead singer ever to front a band.
