Said McCarroll: “I think that Michael is one of the most talented creative executives working in the industry today, with a real ability to work in partnership with artists to help them in achieving their goals. And he promises never reveal that I once worked at HITS.” Howe's first industry gig was A&R at Epic Records, based in Chicago, before moving to online retailer Spun.com in 1999,then founding LA-based independent artist development and management outfit Boundless Entertainment.
