"Open Eyes"

“Wherever my pillow goes, I’ll make believe we’re nose to nose”.

This lyric, taken out of context might sound cheesy to some, but knowing this sentiment comes from my dear friend Weston Howard puts it all into perspective. You see, as a musician, you spend many days and nights on the road traveling from one gig to another, often having to leave your loved ones behind. Weston’s poetic lyric expresses the sensory need to hold onto just a little bit of home and those closest to us. It comes from one of my favorite tracks, “Shake and Bake”, from his 2016 Album, OPEN EYES.

I will admit, Weston is a dear friend of mine and he is truly one of the kindest and most caring humans I know; so my opinion may be biased. His lyrical style and his soothing voice remind me of musical storytellers from my past like Dan Fogelberg and England Dan & John Ford Coley.

As I was driving home from work recently, I was listening to his album again, and it completely transported me. I imagined myself sitting outside of an old country home, on the steps of a wrap-around porch, surrounded by dear friends, and sipping on a sweet tea out of a mason jar; as the first sign of lightning bugs danced around in the cool summer breeze of the early evening.

I invite you all to go on your own imaginary musical journey with the music of Weston Howard. - Rick Tetu

Twelve years ago Joel "Weston Howard" released his first EP, "Jet Black Night"; an emotional, ballad-strung start to an ambitious career, including a studio full length album(Open Eyes), several more EP's and numerous live performances accompanied by a variety of talented musicians.
Last year Howard released Run Away, a home recorded EP that was mostly produced and put together during quarantine of 2020. Although he usually performs solo, there is definitely a full band vibe in parts of the EP, specifically the title track, Run Away.
