Bio

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 upcoming release of her 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!”
