It’s not that easy these days in the UK to stand out in the pack of folk-styled artists but singer-songwriter Ben Howard is doing just that.

The Devon-native — whose music has drawn comparisons to that of Jose Gonzalez and Jack Johnson — attracted a diehard fanbase after releasing an EP of warm-voiced, guitar-driven meditations titled Old Pine last spring. When Howard’s first full-length work, Every Kingdom, followed in the fall, it landed on the Top Ten of the UK Charts its first week and later went gold.

Download “Three Tree Town,” from Howard’s 2011 EP above. In the video below, Ben Howard performs the song “Under The Same Sun.”

Ben Howard makes his New York debut at the Bowery Ballroom on Monday night.

Is his flat tone a deliberate element of his style? Very weird sound. Can't decide if I like it or hate it. Nice guitar strumming though.
