Ricky Howard

Drums, personality

Ricky is the leader and the rock solid drummer for Black Salt, providing the dynamic rhythm foundation upon which the band is based. He began playing drums at a young age at school and church, and was also one of the founding members of the original Black Salt band in 1999.

A versatile player who loves styles as diverse as rock, reggae, hip hop, blues, funk, swing and pop, his strength lies in his ability to draw all of these stylistic influences into the unique sound and dependable groove which Black Salt are famous for.

He currently also performs in various other covers bands, for his Church in West Auckland and when time allows, teaches drums to young up and coming musicians.
