Beloved English singer-songwriter Ben Howard is coming to Australia.

It’s just over a decade since Howard first exploded onto the scene with his stirring 2011 debut album, Every Kingdom, which was nominated for the prestigious Mercury Prize the following year. Every Kingdom was also certified Gold in Australia, highlighting the love Aussies have for his indie-folk anthems.

He’s released four more studio albums since his debut, including this year’s Is It?, which became his fifth consecutive top 20 album in the UK.

Howard’s latest album earned highly positive reviews from critics. “An earnest, ruminative folktronica soundtrack wrapped in introspection, Ben Howard’s fifth album is doused in gentle, twinkly experimentalism as he navigates life’s darker hurdles,” Clash wrote in an 8/10 review.

Expect Howard’s upcoming shows to be laced with emotion: the musician overcame two mini-strokes in 2022, and it’s testament to his resilience and commitment to art that he’s back on the touring circuit so soon after such a health scare. “I feel more positive and I enjoy small things a lot more,” he told The Guardian earlier this year.
