Brent Howard released his self-titled debut album, produced by award-winner Tony Rudner in 1996.  The CD on FRE/EMI resulted in four nationally charting singles and three videos.  The first release "What is and isn't Mine" climbed to # 16 across Canada and the video was "Pick of the Week" on C.M.T. in the summer of 1996.  The second single “The Good ol’ Days” reached the top 30 nationally and also peaked at # 2 on the charts in Germany.  "Always Leaving Something Behind" and "The Wrangler" followed and continued to receive strong radio and fan support across the country.  All three video releases went into heavy rotation on CMT and as mentioned, all four singles from the debut CD charted nationally on country radio.

The 2nd CD Now Where Was I …?” co-won the Album of the year award at the 25th annual BCCMA Awards.  Brent and his band Southern Cherry were nominated for Country release of the year at the West Coast Music Awards, and have had nominations for best Male Country Vocalist at the Canadian Country Music Awards and the Pacific Music Industry Awards.  Brent has also taken home the BCCMA rising star (Ray McCauley Horizon) award.

The 2nd CD “Now where was I…?” got rave reviews from fans and radio.  Three singles were released to radio.  “Change” was on the charts for 15 weeks and the second single “Can I keep er?” has become one of the most requested songs ever at CJJR FM in Vancouver.  “Listen to the Rain” topped off at #16.  The sold out CD release party for “Now where was I?” was at BC’s # 1 Country Club Roosters.  It was reported to be the best attendance of any one-night showcase ever hosted there.

Brent Howard and Southern Cherry songs have been placed in many motion pictures, TV shows and video games.

The 3rd CD, entitled No Relish, is just off the press and not yet released and will be coming out very soon!  Initial responses have been fantastic, as chosen industry people have given this new CD a big “thumbs up”.

The band’s live performances have included playing to huge, enthusiastic crowds at The Calgary Stampede, Merritt Mountain Music Festival, The Salmon Valley Festival, and The Cloverdale Rodeo.  The band has shared the stage with Alabama, Michelle Wright, Lisa Brokop, Loverboy, Don Felder, Aaron Pritchett and many more.

Brent is also a tireless supporter of many charitable organizations, including the Variety Club, Basics for Babies and the Flood Relief Victims Aid program.  He and the band contributed a track to the EMI release Love Conquers All, along with Bryan Adams, Sarah McLaughlin, 5440, and a host of others with all proceeds going to the 9/11 fund.
