About

Thirsty Howell - Music from Somewhere Warm
Guitarist/ Songwriter/ Singer/ Co-Producer
 

I'm Thirsty. 

You can find me in South Florida or possibly Western Canada - performing music and enjoying the sunshine ...and rain. I grew up in Vancouver, Canada and left for South America at the dawn of a new millenium, in search of adventure and inspiration.  After a few years off the grid I ended up in South Florida playing guitar with  'The Castaways' along the coast to Key West. Inspired by the laid back lifestyle I released "Music from Somewhere Warm" (original songs backed by an eclectic cast of musician friends from Miami and Vancouver).

While growing up in Canada I hooked up with studio musicians and producers Gord Lord and Peter Clarke. We started the popular Vancouver group ‘Wallstreet’. A hit with the college crowd, we performed regularly at the famed Commodore Ballroom  (Voted Top Ten most influential clubs in North America by Billboard Mag). Together we produced the album at Gord and Peters place, GGRP Studios.

Thanks to them and the killer musicians - I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome!

The water is fine - come on in!
Peace
Thirsty Howell
