Howie Day is known for his energetic, heartfelt shows, where he connects with audiences through the strength of his song writing and his quirky sense of humor. After sales of more than a million albums and two Top 10 hits, Day is back on the road showcasing old favorites, as well as new material from his upcoming studio release.

A native of Bangor, Maine, Day began playing piano at age five and guitar at age 12. By 15, he was writing his own songs and performing across New England. Shortly after graduating high school, Day became a fixture at college coffeehouses across the U.S.

He wrote, financed and released his first effort, "Australia," which was named Best Debut Album at the 2001 Boston Music Awards. During his relentless touring schedule, Day began experimenting with effects pedals and loop-sampling techniques as he performed, layering live percussion with vocal harmonies and guitar parts to become a veritable one-man band. He went on to sell more than 30,000 copies of "Australia" as he navigated the independent music scene and continued to hone his craft.

After signing with Epic Records, Day released his major-label debut, "Stop All The World Now," and hit the road to support it. The constant promotion paid off — Stop was certified gold in the U.S. and spawned two Top 10 radio hits, "She Says" and the platinum single "Collide."

After three subsequent years of intense worldwide touring, Day moved to Los Angeles and returned to the studio. His next release, "Sound the Alarm," built on the emotionally complex spirit of its predecessor and delved into Day’s journey from indie wunderkind to platinum-selling artist. It’s lead single, Be There, became a staple at modern AC radio.

After parting ways with Epic and relocating to New York City in 2010, Day released the "Ceasefire" EP on his own label, Daze. New songs began to emerge and evolve at shows across North America and Australia. Day is currently immersed in the recording process of his fourth studio album, which he is crafting with the help of longtime friend and producer Mike Denneen. “There is a sense of inherent creativity and imagination to these sessions,” Day says. “Everything seems to be in perfect balance, and I want to capture that energy as it’s happening. Nothing is over or under thought, it’s just in the moment.”

Tickets for Howie Day are $32 for premium seating, $27 for orchestra and $22 for balcony. Purchase tickets by visiting www.thenewtontheatre.com or contact the box office at 973-383-3700.
