Check out The Night Howls ‘s Artwork

Today we’d like to introduce you to The Night Howls.

Formed ​in ​2016, The ​Night ​Howls ​beginnings ​consisted ​of ​playing ​four hour ​gigs ​for ​the ​first ​year ​developing ​tightness ​and ​chemistry. ​Originally ​comprised ​by ​Kimmi ​Bitter (vocals ​and ​guitar) ​and ​Ben ​Neal ​(guitar), ​who ​shared ​a ​similar ​vision ​of ​simple ​pentatonic ​riffs ​and roots ​music, ​the ​band ​shortly ​after ​recruited ​Willis ​Farnsworth ​(bass) ​and ​later, Kai Taylor (drums) ​completing ​their ​singer-songwriter ​with ​high ​intensity ​sound.

The ​Night ​Howls ​quickly ​found ​success ​after ​they ​released ​their ​debut ​self-titled ​album ​in October ​2017. ​Dedicated ​to ​making ​an ​album ​free ​of ​computerized ​effects ​and ​overdubs, ​they recorded ​live ​and ​loud ​to ​tape ​in ​an ​all ​analog ​studio ​using ​vintage ​equipment ​over ​the ​course ​of ​4 days. ​Frequently ​playing ​local ​venues ​(House ​of ​Blues, ​Casbah, ​and ​Pour ​House) ​and ​being ​featured on ​independent ​radio ​stations ​(Award ​Winning ​91x ​Loudspeaker, No So Serious Radio) ​they ​have ​built ​an ​authentic following ​for ​the ​rock-hearted.

We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
The Night Howls are a rock and roll band often described with a Southern and Blues-Rock twist. Songs typically begin with stripped down folk-like acoustic singer-songwriter roots and usually turns into heavy hitters once the band gets through with it. The ​Night ​Howls ​have ​set ​forth ​with ​a ​vision ​of ​creating ​music ​without ​automated ​tweaks ​and representing ​unaltered ​Rock ​and ​Roll, ​much ​like ​in ​the ​days ​before ​technology ​overtook. ​Staying ​as true ​as ​possible ​to ​the ​quality ​of ​60’s ​and ​70’s ​recordings, ​the ​band ​prides ​on ​their ​live ​and ​analog style ​performance. ​We hope people take away simply just having a good time, letting their worries free for the night and diving into their inner rockstar.

The sterotype of a starving artist scares away many potentially talented artists from pursuing art – any advice or thoughts about how to deal with the financial concerns an aspiring artist might be concerned about?
Treat it like a start up business. Don’t expect or feel entitled to take any money made through your artwork for personal gains, at least in the beginning. More importantly, use it to invest in the project’s growth. Look at it as the experience of getting your work out there as a sort of internship for yourself. And don’t be afraid to pay for quality, whether it be a professional promo video or good paint supplies or paying for an experienced audio engineer. Hone into your craft as much as you can so that outside sources will want to help you out because they believe in your work. You have to put in a great amount of work, love, sweat and tears.

Kickstarters and other funding campaigns can be really successful too!

Ask for sponsorships, you may be surprised at how many people want to have a mutually beneficial relationship!
