„Howie Reeve ist eine besondere und einzigartige Figur in der britischen Subkulturszene. Nachdem er über 20 Jahre in einer Reihe von wichtigen Bands aus Glasgow gespielt hat, tritt er seit 2012 als Solokünstler mit akustischer Bassgitarre auf und liefert eine fragmentierte und kunstfertige Musik, die es aufnimmt mit Post-Punk, Avant-Folk und Free-Jazz. Immer mehr nimmt er sich dem Songwriting an und wendet sich an das Publikum mit kryptischen, intimen und beunruhigenden Texten.“ (Chris Joynes)
Mike Watt & Howie Reeve Collaboration:

Freunde der Sonne sind ein Akustikduo aus Kassel mit Liebe zum Soul, Funk und Blues.

Howie Reeve: Solo acoustic bass and singing; third album, 'smaller, now' (February 2016) is a joint release with The Audacious Art Experiment (UK) and Red Wig (Germany).

7" of bass duets with Minutemen/Stooges legend Mike Watt was released in September 2015.

“As inventive and playful as it is richly emotional…his approach to bass is beautifully expressive, melodic and thoughtful, but also takes in flamenco-style flourishes, charging post-punk grooves, choppy, percussive passages and one surprisingly violent bout of chaos.” (Matt Evans, The List)

"Life affirming...fragile, funny, oozing with empathy and above all fantastic songcraft." James T McKay (The Cosmic Dead)

“Unplugged-punk genius Howie Reeve is a linchpin in Glasgow's DIY community…a breathtaking bass player." (Nicola Meighan, The Herald)

“He exists somewhere between post-punk virtuoso, innovative non-linear avant-gardist, and honest and intimate lyricist” (The List)

"Howie Reeve is a unique and singular figure in the current British underground. Having spent over 20 years playing in a number of key Glasgow bands, since 2012 he has been performing solo on acoustic bass guitar, delivering a fragmented and dexterous music that takes in post-punk, avant-folk and free jazz. Increasingly turning to songwriting, he further engages audiences with cryptic, intimate and unsettling lyrics.

Resolutely DIY in his approach to music, he lives in Glasgow but appears to be perpetually on tour, whether in the UK, Europe or Japan." (Chris Joynes)

Freunde der Sonne is an acustic-duo from Kassel which loves Soul, Funk und Blues.
