(Kingston, Jamaica) New York based Island Pop recording artist Duane Howard is showing no signs of slowing down, this as his latest crossover record entitled “Gimmie Your Body” continues to resonate on radio airwaves across the U.S and Caribbean.
At only 22 Howard has consistently been making headways into the mainstream pop markets thanks to his unique vocal range and soulful approach to making music. Considered by his peers as way ahead of his time Duane Howard earlier this year raised eyebrows at New York’s preferred radio station HOT 97‘s talent showcase where he comped first place and was crowned “The 2011 Artist To Watch“.
Born to Jamaican parentage Howard who is a die hard fan of reggae music made Jamaica headlines in 2009 when he collaborated with veteran roots singer Junior Kelly on the chart topping hit single “How She Like It“. Since then Howard alongside his management team at Strauss Boyz Entertainment has been steadily working on his soon to be released EP entitled “Blue Light” which is expected to further build core fan base of females.
Currently majoring in Audio Engineering and Media Production at the Institute Of Audio Research in NYC, Howard is hoping that his passion and determination to become a superstar will soon be a reality.
