"After Reid appeared on the Vinyl Cafe we received tremendous feedback from our audience. He stole the show...He blew me away." - Stuart McLean - CBC Vinyl Cafe

"Neither derivative nor nostalgic...The Unavoidable Truth, is a work of elegant, understated beauty... enveloping the listener in the atmospheric glow of his soulful vocals." - Paste Magazine (4 to Watch For)

'Irresistible...' 'An intelligent, eclectic-pop tunesmith with a rich voice in the tradition of Neil Finn' - Eye Magazine

'Arresting...dazzling voice' - Toronto Sun

'Well-constructed pop treasures that rival Glenn Tilbrook's compositional prowess and the emotionally potent presentation of Jeff Buckley... gorgeous, unbridled voice beams thoughtful lyrics over a vintage country-inspired band.' -

'More than just another promising upstart... rootsy, mellow and honey-sweet.' - 'Toronto boy kicks Josh Rouses ass crooning indie-soul-country classics all of his own making...your life will be better with this music in it.'- Americana UK

'In a few short bars Reid stole the show...' - Now Magazine



"Quadra club owner Gordon Town has always credited singer guitarest Howie James with making the Quadra a success over the past six years."

"Anyone who consistently makes it in the local clubs has to have something going for him...Howie James, the man with the People Power at The Living Room, and consequentially the highest paid single entertainer in town, is on of them."

Alix MacGillivray - The Vancouver Sun


"Howie James and the Jamesman have turned the place (The Quadra) into the town's most swinging non-rock roost."

"Howie James singing the blues at The Newsman Club is one of the better things around town. You havent lived until youve heard him sing tunes from Sesame Street to the slightly spiffed midnight mob."

(1971) Jack Wasserman - CJOR/Vancouver Sun h



"Howie James, the guitarist who sings so well, is actually Howie Jamieson who once sang with Evan Kemp and friends on radio and TV."

"At the Quadra Club...pleasant group called Howie James and the Jamesmen...absorbed much of the nightclub sophistication. the result is a man who can sing the standards and set the atmosphere. This kind of atmosphere is the kind you want...appeals to the introvert in us all"

Lorne Parton - Vancouver Province (1966)


"I heard Howie James singing and playing to a packed house at the Quadra...If there was a college course on ways to satisfy steadily the biggest possible audience, the faculty, led by lawrenece Welk, should include Howie (James). I think every young musician eyeing a commercial career should watch and listen to James at work." (1969)

"Its nice to welcome the coolest of them all, Howie James, back to the nightly scene. He and accompanist Clive Gard opened recently at Clementine's, Ken Stauffer's refurbished flashback in the Lulu belle on West Broadway....The set I caught was typcal James: all kinds of material from his bag of musical and vocal tricks, and I must admit I was especially taken with the sophisticated sambas and bossa novas." (1975)

Bob Smith - Vancouver Sun
