One of the Southern Pacific members…
Kurt Howell started his serious musical career in the early eighties by joyning Southern Pacific, a country/rock group with Stu Cook (ex-CCR), Keith Knudsen and John McFee (ex-Doobie Brothers) and vocalist Tim Goodman.
In the period from 1985 till 1991 Southern Pacific made five albums. Their third album Zuma (1988), with the hit single New shade of blue, was hitting a high point.
In 1992 Kurt Howell’s released his first (and till now only) solo album, a typical AOR West Coast album with a cool balance of beautiful balads and strong up tempos. The selftitled album was produced by Michael Omartian and with a lot of the L.A. studio cats contributes with excellent results.
Together with Marc Beeson & Sonny LeMaire, Kurt Howell formed the band “Burnin´ Daylight in 1995. The project were intented as a live band, but Curb Records signed them after been listning to some tapes from the group and in 1997 they released their first and only album.
