“Audrey is the real deal; A genre-bending and timeless songwriter carving out new worlds within alt-rock/country/pop soundscapes that make you want to sing along even if just hearing the song for the first time. A dynamic instrumentalist and performer she shines on stage and makes any room she plays sparkle a hell of a lot brighter.” - Dillbilly - genre-queer singer-songwriter
“Audrey stands out as one of my favorite musicians to have worked with. I became an instant fan the first time I did sound for Easy Queen. She's super personable and real, as well as professional and reliable. Her songs are fresh and contemporary, while offering a hint of that 90's alternative rock sound that I love so much. I'm excited about her new material, and I'm hoping to work with her on a future project.” - Chris Miner - Engineer and Recording Artist
Audrey Howard is a singer-songwriter, guitarist, and audio engineer living in the Bay Area, California. Her music is painted with a dollop of 90’s grunge and shoe-gaze ala Sonic Youth and Veruca Salt, then washed in a modern indie-rock/folk rinse of Weyes Blood and Angel Olsen. Catchy hooks, a velvet voice, and driving rhythm guitar complement her sparse and honest lyrics.
Audrey’s musical adventures have included solo albums, a prolific folk trio, an all-women drag band, and several original rock trios. She currently fronts indie queer-rock power trio Easy Queen and 70’s/prog-rock group Steel Hotcakes. Favorite gigs have included Fabulosa Fest, S.F. Pride Mainstage, and Nashville’s Bluebird Café.
With the release of her new video/single, “Massachusetts,” Audrey has returned full circle to her acoustic singer-songwriter roots, armed with the perspective of a life well-lived and well-loved. Recorded and mixed on her own, “I wanted to incorporate elements that were very meaningful to me, like love of nature, childhood memories, grief, and healing. Oh, and our awesome camper van - you’ll see it in the video. Creating this song has been a real journey!”
