I'm a very good pop songwriter and producer. As far as recording goes, I'm a perfectionist in that the final mix should sound like it could be on commercial radio and/or in a TV show or a film.
My shows an example of my production skills as I wrote, arranged, sang lead and background vocals, and mixed everything along with a studio engineer.
As far as genres, I can write and record in pretty much any genre. I can also remix songs created a new dance mix of an acoustic song or turn any song into an electronic dance mix, which I have done.
I'm open to performing live and have played both percussion and drums live in Los Angeles in 2019.
In the studio I can be valuable as a producer or to record any parts which can be played on a keyboard. This includes bass, strings, horns, drums, samples of any sound, and sound design to create new and interesting original sounds which would make any recording sound unique and fresh.
I can sing pretty well and would be glad to sing either lead or background vocals.
If you have a home studio or are a guitarist/engineer living in the Los Angeles area, I'm definitely interested in collaborating with you. Also, any vocalists who are looking for a great song to record, I'm interested in playing some of my catchy, hooky pop songs.

I have a set of congas and a djembe. I can play the drums but need a kit at the moment. I have keyboards but it's kind of heavy to move around so if I were gigging using keyboards, I would buy a new keyboards.

Christmas Mourning (children's version)
Christmas Mourning (children's version)This song was written and produced by Michael Allen Howard. I sang and spoke all vocals (yes, even the cute little girl voice). The other instruments were all played by real musicians. My wish with this song is to bring a smile to people's faces especially if they are alone during Christmas. If you would like to see me playing piano on You Tube, just put Michael Allen Howard into the search bar and you will find me. Merry Christmas! :o)
Christmas MourningThis song was written, performed and produced by Michael Allen Howard. All vocals were sung by me and the other instruments are played by actual musicians(not synthesized). This song was recorded in a studio in Chicago that is no longer in existence. To see me playing piano on You Tube, check out Michael Allen Howard. I'm grateful to share this music with the world. Thank you very much.
