Legendary guitarist, Greg Howe, will kick off his North American tour ‘Greg Howe 2022 Tour’ this August 2022, which will feature tracks from a new upcoming studio album, in addition to many of his classic fan-favorites.


The 2022 touring band features Grammy nominated bassist Ernest Tibbs (Protocol IV, Allan Holdsworth) and drummer Joel Taylor (Al DiMeola, Allan Holdsworth) joining Greg Howe on guitar.


Howe’s 2017 “Wheelhouse” album, was voted #6 of the top 20 best guitar albums of the decade by Guitar World Magazine.


In addition to being part of the 2018 GRAMMY® nominated band ‘Protocol IV’ which features Simon Phillips, Ernest Tibbs, and Otmaro Ruiz, Howe has produced, written and arranged ten solo instrumental studio albums along with two collaboration albums with Richie Kotzen of the Winery Dogs. Howe has contributed to a long list of albums/records by other legendary artists such as Dennis Chambers, Victor Wooten, Jason Becker, Billy Sheehan, Marco Minneman, and Eddie Jobson.


He's also made a name for himself as a stellar sideman and session musician with artists such as Michael Jackson, Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera, Rihanna, Enrique Iglesias, and many more.


Howe has also developed a solid reputation as a technical innovator, particularly for his "hammer-on from nowhere" technique, legato runs, unusual time signatures, and linear tapping approach.


His self-titled debut album "Greg Howe" is ranked tenth best shred album of all time by Guitar World Magazine. Musical trends may come and go, but you always know what's in store with a new Greg Howe release, and this veteran guitarist certainly won't disappoint with this breathtaking showcase as one of the best Rock/Fusion players in the world.

ABOUT GREG HOWE:

In his 30 year career, Greg Howe has produced, written and arranged ten solo instrumental studio albums along with two collaboration albums with Richie Kotzen of the Winery Dogs. In addition, Howe has contributed to a long list of albums/records by other artists.
Howe has also developed a solid reputation as a technical innovator, particularly for his strong utilization of tapping, unusual time signatures and his "hammer-on from nowhere" legato method. His self-titled debut album "Greg Howe" is ranked tenth best shred album of all time by Guitar World Magazine.

His more recent efforts have found him going deeper into fusion territory with a series of albums that pull from rock, funk, blues and jazz traditions, while exploring the boundaries of what's possible on a six-string.

Greg Howe has collaborated with artists such as Richie Kotzen, Dennis Chambers, Simon Phillips, Victor Wooten, Jason Becker, Billy Sheehan, Stu Hamm, Marco Minneman, and Eddie Jobson.

He's also made a name for himself as a stellar sideman and session musician with artists like Michael Jackson, Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera, Rihanna, Enrique Iglesias, and many more.

His TV appearances include The Grammy's, American Music Awards, The Tonight Show, The Today Show, The Billboard Awards, Teen Choice Awards, just to name a few.

In 2006, Shrapnel Records celebrated Greg's 20 year career with "Collection - The Shrapnel Years" - an album containing some of his best musical moments - comprised of shred fest ditties such as "Bad Racket" and "Joker's Wild," as well as the popular "Jump Start" and the funky "Howe 'Bout It." These tracks also contain standout performances by some of the greatest musicians in progressive music, including drummers Dennis Chambers and Atma Anur, Keyboardist Vitalij Kuprij, as well as bassists Billy Sheehan and Victor Wooten along with other world class players.

In 2012 Greg Howe decide to take a break from the instrumental world and announced that he would be putting together a rock band named Maragold, which had much international success.

In 2017 Howe joined the powerhouse band 'Protocol' featuring Simon Phillips on drums, Ernest Tibbs on bass, and Otmaro Ruiz on keys.

Greg Howe's new album, "Wheelhouse" marks a highly anticipated return to his solo instrumental work. It features Greg Howe at his best along with an appearance from guitar legend Richie Kotzen (Winery Dogs, Mr. Big) and legendary keyboardist Ronnie Foster (Stevie Wonder, George Benson). Described by Howe as his most personal work to date, the album is destined to again set the bar for guitarists everywhere.

Musical trends may come and go, but you always know what's in store with a new Greg Howe release, and this veteran guitarist certainly won't disappoint with this breathtaking showcase as one of the best rock/fusion players in the world.
