Artist verifiedIain Howie

Hello, my name is Iain Howie. I’m a 27 year old dj-producer, singer-songwriter and multi instrumentalist from Vancouver, Canada. My music blends the tension and melody of house music with songwriting. My debut album "Patterns", released in June 2021, was inspired by some of my favorite artists including Caribou, James Blake, and Bob Moses (of which my brother, Tom Howie, is one half of).

SOME PRESS "A gorgeous new EP ” - XLR8R “A love for songwriting and brooding beats seems to run in the family” - VICE “Unmistakably modern dance music, bursting at the seams with melancholic despair ” - ADSR Collective “Howie’s debut record reveals a highly polished and very individual brand of minimal deep house” - GEORGIA STRAIGHT “With early roots in instruments like the piano and the guitar, the Canadian DJ and producer’s aptitude for music easily shines through” - TORTURE THE ARTIST X The themes in my music are quite personal yet I believe are also universal. I’m singing about love, loss, anxiety and the pitfalls of modern technology. I’m 27, addicted to my phone while dealing with the the uncertainty of a global pandemic. It’s easy to feel anxious. I hope my music can provide some sort of solace for people that feel the same way I do. xo - Iain
