It’s easy to overlook Howard Jones when you’re talking new wave music because he came to define the popular synthpop sound of the early and mid-80s. His first two albums, Human’s Lib and Dream Into Action, were chart-toppers and produced many radio and MTV hits. I’ve always enjoyed his music so I’m excited he’s coming to The Keswick Theatre in October playing those two albums in their entirety. Now if only he’d tour playing songs from his 2005 all-electronic album Revolution of the Heart! I adored that album.
Here are some of my favorite HoJo tracks…
“What Is Love?”
“Things Can Only Get Better”
