Latest News! (Howard's Blog)

      Some information that I received today I need to pass on to everyone ordering CD's.  Apparently because of Covid 19, every country's postal delivery service is holding mail from the USA for two weeks before processing it for delivery.  This is making an already bad situation much worse.  For those of you (anywhere in the world) who have ordered CD's but haven't received them, they are coming.  I send them out as soon as they are ordered and the bureaucracy and stupidity of those delivery services I am powerless to do anything about.  Please hang in there and just know that I am not the one holding up your deliveries.

      I have a new track up for you to listen to.......Ascent to the Point.  (Look at the bottom of the page) I wrote the opening track on the new Pinnacle Point album on Escape Music.  You can order it at  I played keys on several tracks too.  You'll note guest appearances from Jim Morris and Mark Prator from Aldenfield : Aldenfield is a prog band that I put together using the finest players in Tampa, FL.  (Jim Morris, Mark Prator and Ruben Drake).  This is a project I am particularly proud of.  Samples available on the Aldenfield page.      

     Speaking of new projects with friends, I have just completed three tracks for the new Shaffer/Barlow Project.  Both of whom are from Iced Earth fame.  My good friend, and Aldenfield bassist, Ruben Drake is playing bass on the album too.  The drummer is the guy from Queensryche.  Should be great stuff.

     Here is some great news on the Zon front......Rock Candy, a respected label in the UK has just re-released Zon's first album, Astral Projector with new mastering and 4 bonus tracks!!!   One of which has never been released.  You can hear a snippet of it on the bottom of my website here.  "The Battle".  Here is the link for purchasing:


      Another CD I have available is The Quietest Moments.  This is a collection of piano based pieces some of which have kind of a world music flavor.  It's good music for relaxing, meditating or just chillin' round the house.

Be safe, back to the studio.
