About Howard Wiley
Born in Berkeley, California, Howard Wiley displayed the seeds of his musical talent at a very young age. Wiley found himself playing in the most nurturing of all environments for young African American musicians: the church. Wiley’s music is a direct reflection of his youth, which gives his music a level of simplicity, honesty and integrity. He has developed into a complete artist in the sense that he possesses a great awareness of the past while he continues to make statements and ask questions into the future. Wiley has recorded and performed with Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown, Lauryn Hill, Miles Mosley & The West Coast Get Down, Chester Thompson, and Christian McBride.
