"When you combine the brilliant musical talents of Howard Lips with the renowned Peter Bordonali, there is only one way to describe DOWN SOUTH -- A Down Home Musical Masterpiece." (Sandy Floyd, Fan Club President)

Written by Tom Pick & Howard Lips (published by Timberjack Music), this is a slideshow of the title song from Adonda's new release, "Down South." The album's liner notes contain the following: "It's refreshing to hear an artist bring compassion to his music like Howard Lips. He sings with the same compassion as he uses to deliver the Word of God. As his Lay leader and friend I can speak for many of us who get to enjoy this talent each week" (Dale Carnahan, Emergency Management Director, Perry County, Mississippi). "I am proud to know Howard, not only as a Musician, but as our Methodist Minister. He also works with our School through His music and spiritual leadership and the kids really love Brother Lips. I'm honored to be a part of this new CD" (Albert Garner, Mayor, New Augusta, Mississippi). "This album is special to me, you feel like you are there with Howard as he sings his memories and fantasies" (Tom Pick, co-producer). "Howard's style is unique and his abilities are second to none. Adonda is proud of Howard Lips -- a multi-talented songwriting and singing troubadour" (Harrison Tyner, co-producer).

With his legendary guitar, mandolin and bass playing work on the "Down South" album, he now adds Howard Lips to his list of Country Stars.

He is well-received in a variety of venues, such as colleges and universities, fairs, concert halls, pubs, festivals, private parties and church events. The music of Howard Lips is rooted in the traditional story-telling style of music performed by Jimmy Rogers, Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, and Neil Diamond. He draws from the deep well of Elvis Presley's Gospel and Rock & Roll, Robert Johnson's Delta Blues, and Country Legends Merle Haggard, Hank Williams, Sr. and Porter Wagoner.
