HowellDevine was formed back in the Summer of 2011 when Joshua Howell and Pete Devine met each other in SF. They both realized that they had a similar love of the blues and instantly bonded musically! Joshua, who had just spent the previous three years in Thailand, was freshly dealing with the "Back to America Blues," and Pete had just climbed out from the pits of hell to begin the healing process in his new life after a month long vacation in a sunny So. Cal rehab. Happily, they played together around SF for several months as a duo. Then in the fall, they recruited upright bassist Sam Rocha and recorded a CD titled "Delta Grooves" as a trio. Sam soon went off to war to a (not so) foreign land. So enter current upright bassist Joe Kyle Jr. Since then, HowellDevine has been providing Northern California and The Bay Area with the kind of blues that makes folks whoop, holler and hump.....well, dance!

In our four-year existence as a band, we have played many fantastic venues around the greater Bay Area....and our scope is vastly expanding heading into the new year of 2016!

We have released 3 records now, two of which have been release on the legendary blues & roots lable, "Arhoolie Records"! Our last 2 records for Arhoolie, have been receiving stellar reviews from music critics and radio disc jockeys from across the country AND over seas. KQED/NPR also recently aired a fantastic feature on our recording "Modern Sounds of Ancient Juju" for "The California Report" .

Check out what these music greats are saying about HowellDevine's new album:
