Between Howls

Join us for a live performance by Between Howls!

Between Howls are dynamic vocalist/violinist Ren Cooper Howl & guitarist/singer-songwriter Nick Muska Howl. The two perform a blend of folk, rock and blues featuring a distinctive take on the catalogs of artists past & present alongside their own original material.

The Howl’s met in college at the University of Wisconsin-Superior. They first crossed paths as members of various jazz & fusion/rock ensembles directed by Dr. Greg Kehl Moore; and got to know each other at house parties, where they would steal songs from each other’s playlists. The two began performing publicly in the winter of 2018 at the Thirsty Pagan in Superior, WI.

Since then they have performed across the US and have cowritten several albums worth of material together, primarily as frontmen for the touring rock group One Less Guest, spent several years living in Southern California, and have contributed to numerous records for other artists, even scoring a couple films- a documentary & a short film which recently debuted at Grauman’s TCL Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles.

After many years of being friends and bandmates, Ren & Nick were married in September of 2023. The two are currently in the initial stages of recording a forthcoming Between Howls album of all-original material and routing a cross-country tour to support.
