Halls is the solo project of 21 year old South London musician Sam Howard.
Formed in London, UK in early 2010, Halls worked on material that would appear on the debut EP “Halls EP”, released in January 2011, which was described as having ‘ambient soundscapes buttressed by skitter-step beats.’
Ark - his brooding debut album - draws from a palette of crystalline melodies, intense production and panoramic instrumentation to create a deeply personal, constructivist work of art. Evocative in sound and yet isolationist in sentiment, the album is an intense, dramatic and emotive study of loss and modern anxiety set to a strained electronic soundtrack.
Halls performs as a live band. Accompanying Howard is drummer Ian Jenkins and multi-instrumentalists Oliver Goulden and Patrick Ghirardello.
