Howard Jones is the eldest of four boys. His birthplace is Southampton, England, and he spent his early years in High Wycombe in Buckinghamshire, and attended the Royal Grammar School, and then spent a year at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester. He now lives with his family in Somerset.
Howard Jones' first single called "New Song" was released in September 1983 and reached the UK top five and US top 30. He subsequently had three more hits over the next twelve months and a UK Number 1 album, Human's Lib. He acquired a hardcore fanbase made up of both starstruck teenagers and more mature music lovers, who saw the musicianship which went into the electronic sounds of his songs.
Howard Jones was known as a respectable face of pop, combining innovative synthesizer music with strong feelings on animal rights and life's excesses. In the summer of 1984, he released a single called "Like To Get To Know You Well", which he said was 'dedicated to the original spirit of the Olympic Games'. Although it was not an official Olympic anthem for the Games in Los Angeles that summer, it caught on and was a huge worldwide hit. The sleeve featured the song title in ten different languages; while Howard Jones sang the title line in French and German on the extended version. The song appeared in the film Better Off Dead.
When Howard Jones released his second studio album, Dream Into Action, in 1985, he introduced his own backing band, including future Soul II Soul singer Caron Wheeler as one third of female backing vocal trio Afrodiziak. Playing bass guitar, meanwhile, was Howard Jones' own brother Martin, who had to have an extra string added to his instrument to play some of the bass lines, which were originally played on a keyboard without regard for the range of a real bass guitar. One of the singles released from this album, "No One Is To Blame", was later re-recorded and featured Phil Collins as drummer and producer.
Howard Jones has continued to tour and write new music, more recently collaborating with Robbie Bronniman to co-produce music for the Sugababes and his 2005 studio album Revolution of the Heart.
