Joshua Howlett was born in Manchester but has chosen an unlikely location to act as the muse to his music – Switzerland.

Growing up experiencing British and Swiss culture, he ended up somewhere between the two, taking the music from his homeland and marrying it with the tranquil, breath-taking vistas of his new home.
