Christian Howes Biography

Christian’s star was ascending long before he was named the #2 rising star by Downbeat Magazine’s Critics Poll. A native of Columbus, Ohio, Christian Howes began classical training at the ripe age of five. After performing with the Columbus Symphony Orchestra and high placements at various national competitions, Howes, captivated by the spontaneity of improvisation, set out build his strong classical foundation and distinguish himself in the world of jazz. Having performed all over the globe, Howes has wowed fellow performers and audiences alike with the explosive violin styling and remarkable stage presence that convinced Lee Brown to call him the “Jazz Paganini” and the legendary Les Paul to say:

Nowadays there are four or five really good jazz violinist, but there is nobody better then this guy.”

After been featured in the Spanish film Impulsos, and playing the jazz stages from Newport to Birdland, Howes is just beginning to leave his distinctive signature sound and indelible echo not only on jazz, but on a music scene the world a over yearning for a distinct and unique musical vision.
