The staff

There are a lot of things you can call us; reviewers, tastemakers, scum and musicians to name but a few. Basically we are the ones who will listen to your stuff and pass on our opinions.

Jamie Blackburn

With a solid few years on the music scene I have been writing and performing fairly prolifically. A passion for music and a drive to empower independent musicians pushed me towards establishing and working for Howl.

Ian Astill

Ian has been on the scene for longer than he would care to admit. A degree level of musical education from the RNCM and musical directorship of the Castletown Metropolitan Silver Band makes Ian the most over-qualified reviewer here at Howl.

Chas Paynter

Chas began his musical journey down in Swansea rubbing shoulders with recording and performing musicians alike. A school of hard knocks eduction is what qualifies Chas to listen to and review all your tracks.
