The song writer took a hiatus from the band to release her standalone album, Jaime, in 2019. With songs like “Short and Sweet” and her hit “Stay High,” Howard continues to feel like a breath of fresh air to the world of rock.
While Alabama Shakes received notable recognition in 2015 for their second album Sound & Color, with six Grammy nominations including album of the year, in 2017 Howard left the band.
“I was sitting there, silent, thinking to myself, What am I gonna do? What do I want?” Howard said in an interview with The New Yorker. “I’d rather make a few mistakes and still be myself than be rich and bored.”
At the end of 2020, Howard released Jaime (The Remixes) which features artists like Bon Iver and EARTHGANG as they help her reimagine three songs on her previous 2019 album.
