About Howard Hewett

The group Shalamar had an enviable career at the height of the disco era, with several charting dance hits and a high, gleaming profile. After the successful solo departure of fellow vocalist Jody Watley, Howard Hewett split with the group in 1986 to explore his own career. He released several well-received albums of soulful, gospel-tinged R&B, heavy on the romantic slow jams, and contributed to albums by several jazz fusion artists who made use of his supple, multi-octave voice. In 2001, he channeled his church-music influences into a full-on gospel album (and a live follow-up of the same material), creating an even wider fan base for his intimate, passionate crooning.
