On the road outside of Omaha Nebraska, in the middle of a 16-date run supporting a national act, Jennings’ phone rang with an unfamiliar number, and his heart sank. At the time, he was employed by a fortune 500 company as a management consultant, and while in between projects, he was offered a tour support slot that he couldn’t pass on. And on the other end of the line was a partner from the firm. “Hey Howard, where are you right now? Can you be in New Jersey tomorrow?”. Jennings decided to hang up the suit and tie and keep chasing songs.
Fast forward a few years later, after touring with pop stars and indie rockers, such as Vertical Horizon, Rusted Root, Ryan Cabrera and The Damnwells, landing TV placements with MTV, E!TV, and NBCSN, and making Nashville home in early 2013, he’d soon find himself recording songs with Brian Layson (Will Hoge, Dierks Bentley) and recently, Jennings has been working with Jesse Siebenberg (A Star Is Born, Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real, Supertramp).
Jennings released a handful of singles in 2018. One of those songs picked up momentum during the winter olympics when Whiskey Riff hailed “American Spirit” as “your favorite olympic anthem”. His latest “Barroom Blues” shines with neon and nostalgia, as he pens a note to his favorite bar reminiscing over the good and bad times while reminding himself that he’s right where he wants to be in life.
