Howie Yeo

Howie Yeo

Guitarist | Vocalist

 

HOWIE, or better remembered as David Yeo during his stint in the first season of Singapore Idol, is a seasoned performer who has played in both the English music scene (at joints such as Wala-Wala, Paulaner Brauhaus, Hood Bar & Cafe, Muddy Murphy's, Beer Market, J Bar and Level Up) as well as in the Cantopop/Mandopop scene (at Dragonfly, Firefly and Shanghai Dolly). In recent years, with bilingual joints being commonplace, he has also played at Wheeler's Estate, BarBarQ and Wildseed Cafe, amongst others.

He also won Guinness Live! 2012, a singing competition organised last year to search for new blood in the Cantopop/Mandopop scene. With the win, he performed together with his favourite Chinese band of all time, Power Station, at their concert at Dragonfly in 2012.

Don't let his tattoos fool you; Howie listened to ballads and boybands growing up, so he is equally comfortable with high energy rock songs as well as emotional ballads.

Even though Howie is known mainly for being a vocalist, he also has a Grade 8 Certificate (with Merit) for Rock & Pop Guitar from Trinity College London. As such, don't be surprised if you see him shredding on lead guitar!
