Howlin’ is getting some great feedback lately. Here are some press clippings!
“Smooth vocals, perfectly structured with a stellar Pop feel dominate the track while ominous pads and a dark progression take hold. Driving basslines and sharp synth stabs add the perfect backdrop for the vocals to shine. Lyrically the track speaks about the lust for an undeniable love. All consuming, the need for love outweighs all else and when the moon comes up, Pete Cho will be “Howlin’ for you.” …All in all this is a well executed and catchy jam. Just enough edge, a captivating vibe, a great vocal performance and solid production. We’ll be knocking this for sure.”
-Brian Delaney, Rockdafuqout (Read more here)
“[Howlin’] is such an infectious pop track with awesome synth works, driving basslines and smooth vocals. The chorus got stuck in my head and I am really loving this pop tune!”
-CaesarLiveNLoud (Read more here)
“Resultatet är en 80-tals doftande poplåt med skön varulvsmetafor, vilket jag tyckte var underhållande.”
-Johan Alexed, Pop Muzik (Read more here)

The leap from Korean barbecue to pop music might not seem an obvious one, but for collaborator Pete Cho it was the only logical move. No stranger to the music industry, Pete spent years as a DJ touring the US, enthralling crowds on stages from Lollapalooza to North Coast Music Festival before leaving it all in 2012 and heading back home to Chicago to care for his ill father. With the help of his mother, Pete launched GOGI, his successful Korean barbecue restaurant, but the itch to get back into music persisted – intensifying a year later after an introduction to Dino Zisis (Lady Gaga “Applause”) and with the recollection of words of support from his father: “Before my dad passed away he said after two years of running a restaurant, if I find passion in music again, sell the business and get back into it. He told me he was proud either way. Strangely, everything is following that path.” Cultivating an ever-amplifying appreciation for pop music, Pete has studied the craft of pop writing and production – pitching songs for major artists, movie sync opportunities, and finding time to release music for himself and his friends. Now he’s gone all in, selling his restaurant to make music full time as an artist, producer, and songwriter.
