Creative COW Records

DownloadCreative COW is pleased to announce that we have received our first shipment of CDs and have now officially opened the Creative Cow Records website, where you can buy the CD or download MP3s of our first release, "A Mother's Garden" from Howard Cowles. This recording includes 15 songs that span over 59 minutes. The melodies are lush and orchestral and the production work is first-rate, with Troy Dexter and Tim Heintz sharing the duties. Tim has worked with many top names over the years, with credits including Madonna, Lee Ann Rimes, Emerson Lake & Palmer, etc.

Howard Cowles' lifelong love of the piano has brought a myriad of styles and influences to bear in both his playing style and his repertoire. There are strong classical influences that permeate his music, especially from the Romantic and Impressionist periods. Timeless masters from the Great American Songbook -- names like George Gershwin, Duke Ellington, Cole Porter, Harold Arlen and others -- add their influence to Howard's playing and writing. Then you will find nuances and threads of Stan Getz, Dave Brubeck, Bob James and other jazz greats in the music of Howard Cowles. Add the flashy arpeggios, glissandos and portamentos of power players like Roger Williams, Ferrante and Teicher, and others, to Howard's musical mixing bowl. Throw in a tip of the hat to pop songwriters like Elton John, Billy Joel, Randy Newman and others, and you are beginning to arrive at some of what goes into the playing and composing of Howard Cowles.

Creative Cow Records president, Ron Lindeboom, believes that "Howard is a man whose talent places him as at least an equal to artists like David Foster, Jim Brickman, George Winston, David Lanz, and other contemporary pianists working in the New Age instrumental field. Personally, I think his technique and ability -- not to mention his melodic sensibility -- are on a level that exceeds many of his contemporaries."

Today, he still practices hours a day and his friends would tell you that anytime you call, both day or night, the chances are great he will answer the call while continuing to practice as he talks with you. His dedication to the piano and to his music has never slowed down and it is this dedication, experience and degree of mastery of his instrument that makes the music of Howard Cowles so multi-faceted, expressive, emotionally rich, and directly personal.

In this article, Ron Lindeboom looks at the powerful HP Skyroom technology, which allows team members to interact in high definition video with one another, as they work on projects and approvals remotely. Highly powerful, yet priced within reach of many small to medium-sized companies -- nevertheless, the system is powerful enough for even major players like Dreamworks Animation, who used the system during the making of the blockbuster 'Monsters vs Aliens.' Powerful, elegant, simple to use.
