SXSW: Howard Eliott Payne

Howard Eliott Payne comes from a musical family who, including himself, are local legends in their home of Liverpool. His former band The Stands parted ways in 2005 and he's now working on his solo debut.

Payne's first single “Come Down Easy” begins with deep blues strumming on his acoustic guitar and adds a tinge of folk with a sharp fiddle. His throaty alto vocals produce the feeling of authentic modern bluegrass, the kind you would hear in the park at sunset while reclining in front of the stage. The debut single releases April 6 on Move City Records.
