Rolling Stone writes that the album has, “a wisecracking edge that allows his airy tenor to become richer and more expressive with his newfound penchant for humor.” You can read the full Rolling Stone article here.
If you haven’t been to or heard about The Howard, check it out below!
A noted architectural landmark, The Howard serves as a stunning 33,383 square foot event space, concert hall, cafe, bar, and bowling alley nestled in the charming lakefront town of Oshkosh, WI. Originally founded in 1927 as a men-only Eagles club, The Howard has been lovingly restored by sisters and proprietors, Carey Sharpe and Jenna Golem, who lovingly renamed the property after their grandfather. Spanning nearly a century as an iconic landmark, the expansive development maintains the building’s original opulent craftsmanship, imbued with updated interior elements that harken back to the grandeur of early 20th-century architecture. In February of 2018 The Howard was officially listed in the National Register and State Register of Historic Places by the Secretary of the Interior.
