Eileen Howard

Eileen Howard is one of those rare entertainers with the sensitivity and flair to deeply evoke the human condition in her work. She’s received accolades and awards as a singer, songwriter and actress and is active on the New York and Atlanta scenes as a noted jazz and blues vocalist. She’s also received acclaim as a gifted songwriter. Her latest release, Big City Love, is generating buzz around town.

A delightful and spirited singer who loves to perform, Eileen puts on shows that are heartfelt, soulful, swinging and full of honest feelings. “My concerts are really storytelling with music. I like a variety of music so I perform jazz, blues, funk and sometimes folk or rock. The words that I sing must contain truth about the human condition. I want them to be uplifting, have a sense of hope and redemption, and be life affirming.”
