Kurt Howell's experience as a Recording Artist, lead vocalist, session keyboard player, touring musicians, staff writer, producer and publisher is second to none. Stating in the 80's as an artist for Warner Brothers Records, Kurt toured, wrote, sang, co-produced and performed for millions of listeners world wide.
Kurt joined the band Southern Pacific in 1986 around guitarist John McFee (Doobie Brothers), drummer Keith Knudsen and bassist Stu Cook (ex-CCR). They released "Zuma" in 1988, which included Southern's biggest hit, "New Shade of Blue," and "County Line" in 1989. Warner released a final greatest-hits collection in 1991.
The year after, Kurt recorded his first (and till now only) solo album "Kurt Howell", a typical AOR album with a cool balance of beautiful balads and strong up tempos featuring contributions by Steve Lukather (TOTO), Michael Landau, Jerry Hey, Neal Schon, Michael Omartian... just to name a few.
In 1995, Kurt formed Burnin' Daylight with Sonny LeMaire, formerly a member of 1980s country pop band Exile and songwriter Marc Beeson, who had previously charted a solo single on BNA Records in the early 1990s. At first, Burnin' Daylight was intended to be only a live band; however, the group sent a tape to Mike Curb, head of the Curb Records label, who signed the group in 1997. In April of that year, Burnin' Daylight released its eponymous debut album. They charted three singles on the U.S. Billboard country music charts, including a Top 40 hit in "Say Yes".
Currently Kurt's production company is developing and signing artist for today contemporary marketplace.
