Greg Howe
Greg Howe
Greg Howe has collaborated with artists such as Dennis Chambers, Victor Wooten, Richie Kotzen, Jason Becker, Billy Sheehan, Stu Hamm, Simon Phillips, Marco Minneman, and Eddie Jobson. He's also made a name for himself as a stellar sideman and session musician with artists like Michael Jackson, Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera, Rihanna, Enrique Iglesias, and many more. His TV appearances include The Grammy's, American Music Awards, The Tonight Show, The Today Show, The Billboard Awards, Teen Choice Awards, just to name a few.

Howe has also developed a solid reputation as a technical innovator, particularly for his strong utilization of tapping, unusual time signatures and his "hammer-on from nowhere" legato method. His self-titled debut album "Greg Howe" is ranked tenth best shred album of all time by Guitar World Magazine.

In 2006, Shrapnel Records celebrated Greg's 20 year career with “Collection – The Shrapnel Years” – an album containing some of his best musical moments — comprised of shred fest ditties such as "Bad Racket" and "Joker's Wild," as well as the popular "Jump Start" and the funky "Howe 'Bout It." These tracks also contain standout performances by some of the greatest musicians in progressive music, including drummers Dennis Chambers and Atma Anur, Keyboardist Vitalij Kuprij, as well as bassists Billy Sheehan and Victor Wooten along with other world class players.

In 2012 Greg Howe decide to take a break from the instrumental world and announced that he would be putting together a rock band named Maragold, which had much international success.

Greg Howe's new album, "Wheelhouse", which is due out later this year, marks a highly anticipated return to his solo instrumental work. It features Greg Howe at his best along with an appearance from guitar legend, Richie Kotzen (Winery Dogs, Mr. Big). Described by Howe as his most personal work to date, the album is destined to again set the bar for guitarists everywhere.

Musical trends may come and go, but you always know what's in store with a new Greg Howe release, and this veteran shredder certainly won't disappoint with this breathtaking showcase as one of the best rock/fusion players in the world.
