Howard Jones is a synth-pop icon, a pioneer of both synths and of sequencers, a one-man show but– more than any of those– he is an optimist. An optimist with a #1 hit in “No One Is To Blame”, a catalog of great albums, as well as the distinction of playing with artists like Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton, Stevie Wonder, Herbie Hancock, the Munich Philharmonic, and more. But an optimist nonetheless. Called “impossibly positive” by one music critic, Jones preaches optimism as a lifestyle, both in his songs and by the way he lives his life– a life he has spent connecting with listeners around the world. Jones’ latest album is Ordinary Heroes. He also recently remastered his first two albums (Human’s Lib and Dream Into Action). Keep up with the latest at www.howardjones.com.
