More Information


Howard Cowles is recognized as one of Southern California’s most popular and innovative pianists. Born in Orange, California to a classical pianist mother, his attachment to her Mason-Hamlin Grand Piano was obvious at a very early age. His youth was spent listening to and studying the classical masters. Music was a common sound in his adolescent years; he was influenced by all types of music from classical to rock, including Elton John, Barry Manilow, and Roger Williams.

Howard’s fist music teacher was his mother, Esther, a classical pianist and teacher herself. His current CD, “A Mother’s Garden,” was produced in her memory. Howard will be performing new songs off his new release “A Mother’s Garden,” as well as selections form his past albums. Howard will be joined by special guests throughout the night.
