PAs the frontwoman and guitarist for Alabama Shakes, Howard has become one of music’s most celebrated figures. The band has won four GRAMMY Awards and topped the Billboard200 with the Gold-certified Sound & Color, the follow-up to its Platinum debut album, Boys & Girls. She will release her debut solo album, Jaime, on September 20 via ATO Records. She recorded Jaime after a cross country drive that took her from Nashville to a small house in Topanga, CA – a rustic Los Angeles county town wedged between the mountains and the beach. She titled the album after her sister, who taught her to play the piano and write poetry, and who died of cancer when they were still teenagers.
