All the way from Galway, Ireland, comes DAVID HOWLEY, of "We Banjo 3."

DAVID HOWLEY is a talented multi-instrumentalist, singer, and songwriter hailing from Galway, Ireland

He blends traditional Irish folk with modern Indie elements and a touch of electronic music, creating a unique and captivating sound. 

With his soulful voice and intricate guitar and bouzouki playing, his songs are a celebration of the rich musical heritage of his homeland, as well as a reflection of his own experiences and emotions.

As a founding member of the highly regarded band, "We Banjo 3," DAVID HOWLEY has made a name for himself in the Irish folk music scene, earning numerous accolades and awards, including three Billboard No. 1s. 

HOWLEY is widely regarded as a master of his craft, known for his haunting melodies and poetic lyrics that speak directly to the heart.

After years of hard work and dedication, HOWLEY is set to release his highly anticipated album, "for Venus," on April 21st, 2023

The 8-track album is a reflection of maturing, written between the lush woods of New Hampshire and the breathtaking Irish west coast. 

Inspired by mythology, poets such as Rilke, Dickinson, and Jung, "for Venus" is a mythological journey of the heart, a smooth and moving expression of the sleepless poetry of the soul.

DAVID HOWLEY is thrilled to release his new album, saying, "I'm very excited to share 'for Venus' with the world. I poured my heart and soul into this album and I can't wait for people to hear it."
