When not falling off of horses, and in my never ending pursuit of self-amusements (and the making of a buck or two of course), I have taken back up with my old creative outlet of still photography. I wasn’t bad at it years ago, and apparently I’m still not too shabby as my first commercial assignment for Hook Magazine will be published in their July 15th edition, featuring a spread on the new Antique and Classic Couture emporium, The Eclectic Eye, in Warwick, NY. “The Hook” has been around for quite awhile and focuses on style, art, fashion and the creative goings on (with a dash of social news… pour ceux dans le savior) in the lower Hudson Valley, Northern New Jersey and Putnam and Westchester County areas. Kind of like a Hampton’s Magazine, but without anything about The Hamptons in it… and I’ve heard tell that apparently there are people out there who actually enjoy that sort of a thing. So look for more to come. I’ll be shooting horse shows of course (No… not shooting horses. Jeez… you guys are so predictable.), portraits, events, some more commercial gigs… and yes, I do weddings (well… maybe weddings. We’ll talk). – See ya round the campfire, DH
3/9/15 – Regrets friends and fans…. but Doug has elected not to tour this 2015 season and has stepped back from Rhett Tyler & Early Warning in order to concentrate on his music video promotion company, www.VJ-Pro.com. No worries, no drama. Just a decision to take a little break for this year, and then perhaps later see what happens down the road.
Sorry to perhaps disappoint, but look for some fun to come.
Best to you all! See you down the road!

8/3/13 – Finally, the long wait is over. Fully remixed and re-mastered, SpoonBread’s live album “Live At The Fireman’s Ball” is set for release on September 1st, 2013. Of course the tracks have been available on this site and others for streaming, but not for download. The album is the live recording of Doug and the band’s rare appearance at The Oneonta Theatre on May 12th, 2012 and features their special brand of roaring funk and slamming rock & roll that left the crowd exhausted and screaming for more. A CD version will be available Sept 1st on SpoonBreadMusic.com, here of course… iTunes and Amazon.com.
Stay tuned! The band as ever is grateful for your patience and support. Look for SpoonBread to resume live dates in 2014.
4/3/13 – For the 2013 summer show season, Doug has teamed up with guitar wizard Rhett Tyler. And there are tons of dates. Best place to keep up on where they are going to be is Rhett’s Fan Page or, follow Doug Howard on Twitter or on his FaceBook site.
1/12/12 – Doug will be contributing his bass pyrotechincs to the soundtrack of the upcoming feature film “Motel Hell 2012” which is currently in production and slated for release later this year. What exactly Doug will be performing on the soundtrack is still under wraps, but samples will be posted as they are released. To learn more about the film, please visit www.motelhell2012.com
