Singer/Songwriter

Please check out my website at jamesstanleyhowen.com

Singer/songwriter James Stanley Howen (Jimmy to his
friends) has many years of performing both in bands
and as an acoustic artist behind him. While playing
the songs of some of the greatest singer/songwriters
in the American tradition like John Prine, Rodney
Crowell and Merle Haggard has influenced his original
music, Jimmy has found his own voice as singer and
songwriter. The sounds of Americana, Classic Country
and Southern Rock all make their marks on Jimmy's
music.

On his first full length CD, Jimmy presents a serie
of songs written by him, lyricist Harry Hamm and
producer Donny Weber. From the timeless imagery of
"Where the Mighty Rivers Meet," to the humor of
"Beside Myself" and "Some Guys Have All the Luck" and
the reflections of "I Owe it All to You" and "Too Late
to Say I Love You," Jimmy and Harry's songs cover the
emotional gamut. The mix of traditional acoustic
instruments with modern electronics reflect Jimmy's
roots in the American tradition and his openness to
new experiences and influences.....Mark Douglas Marti 6/15/05.

Many thanks for your comment on my page, Jimmy, and for your great support and wonderful friendship through the years.

Congratulations again to Mark Hoekstra for winning the Golden Kayak for 2016 Best Blues Song and to you on your nomination for Best Country Song for your great song, "Dreams of a Boy".

Congratulations are in high order to you as well for assembling the amazing group of artists / musicians along with yourself for The Mighty Rivers Project and for your special role and part in writing the songs for the album project, and for dominating the IMP charts for weeks with many of the songs on the album.

The CD is on autoplay here, and has been and continues to be greatly enjoyed many times over. It is a classic, Jimmy, just like you in every respect.

Hi Jimmy,

Yes, another year has come and gone all but for December arriving tomorrow.

I hope the year has been good to you and yours Jimmy and that the New Year brings you peace, love, good health and happiness - and music. The special friendship we have shared since first meeting on MySpace almost 10 years ago - can you believe that - 10 years!! - has meant the world to me and will be treasured for as long as I live.

2016 is going to be a busy year for me - I'll be releasing three new albums at different times throughout the year (all being recorded simultaneously as we speak) and it looks like finally my novel will also be published next year. Now if only I could aim my wagon west and meet up with you and Roy and Les, we could make the Fireside Cowboys dream become a reality.

I know it will happen Jimmy - one day the stars will line up and we'll meet somewhere in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains or where the mighty rivers meet, maybe even where the restless wind blows warm all through the night ... and we will have the time of our lives.

Until then buddy, keep the dream alive and keep writing and singing those great songs that come from your heart.

Merry Christmas ... luv ya Jimmy.
Neil

Hi All,

My song "WHERE THE MIGHTY RIVERS MEET" was nominated for best Country Song Of The Year by IAIA (International Academy of Independent Artist) for a Golden Kayak Award.

I was very surprised and honored by this. Though I didn't win it was great to be picked for it. I was very happy that my buddy Neil w. Young won the Golden Kayak for Best Country Song Of The year with his THE COWBOY SONG.

I would like to congratulate all the nominees and especially the winners this year.

I would like to thank all those who have ever taken time to listen. Also to all the great e-mails from the many music lovers who said wonderful things about "WHERE THE MIGHTY RIVERS MEET". To all the people who have supported my singer/songwriter quest for so many years. To all of the Artist friends I have made on Myspace and KIAC Internet Radio. To the members and my peers of the International Academy of Independent Artist.

I would also like to thank and share this honor with my co-writers and producers Harry Hamm (Executive Producer) and Don Weber (Music Producer and Engineer).

I would also like to thank and share this honor with the great musicians that contributed tracks on "WHERE THE MIGHTY RIVERS MEET". Geoff Landon - Harmony Vocals, Don Weber - Guitars, Russ Brunner - Dobro, Nathan Lee - Flute & Banjo, Tommy Greywolf - Fiddle, Mike Spellman - Bass Guitar and Scott Mottet - Percussion.


I would like to thank the INTERNATIONAL ACADEMY OF INDEPENDENT ARTIST for this much honored nomination.

Sincerely, Jimmy

Hi All,
This a video made by Roy and Wendy Muniz for "Where The Mighty Rivers Meet" which was a song on my 2005 released "Side By Side" CD.
Thank you Roy and Wendy and you both are very special and I am honored to have you both as friends. Wendy took this footage parts of three different rivers. In Montana and Idaho for this video.
I hope you enjoy it as I did!
Jimmy
