Ben Howard, renowned for his captivating songwriting and masterful guitar skills, first made waves with his triple platinum debut album, Every Kingdom, in 2011. Since then, he has continued to evolve, seamlessly blending acoustic and electronic elements in his music.

The upcoming tour follows the release of Howard’s fifth studio album, Is It?, in June 2023. The record, produced by Bullion, explores highly textured, experimental pop songs, marking a new sonic chapter for the artist. Known for his unpredictability, Howard’s music journey has taken listeners through various landscapes, and Is It? continues this trend.

Recorded over ten days in the Le Manoir de Léon studios in the South of France, Is It? captures intense moments, resulting in one of Howard’s most upbeat and uplifting albums to date. Fans in Australia will have the opportunity to experience these songs live, along with tracks from Howard’s celebrated catalogue.

Described by The Times as “spellbinding, transcendental even,” Ben Howard’s live shows are known for their intensity and ability to captivate audiences. His desire to navigate between light and shadow makes both his music and performances a rare and vital experience.
