Wake Up Happy! is probably the closest thing I have to a ‘hit’ (so far!).

It has been heard on numerous campaigns, including radio spots for McDonalds, TV adverts for MTV Good Deeds Day and Snuggles, and a cute web promo for Beneful.

The track has also been featured on hit TV shows Jane By Design (ABC Family) and Geordie Shore, as well as the Hallmark film ‘Fir Crazy’.

Wake Up Happy! is of course available from all good stockists, including iTunes, Zune and more…

Howes & Slatter provided bespoke music for the latest Protect Your Bubble television advert.

For this job I realised a long held dream and finally managed to use a Swanee whistle in a piece of commercial music!!


A cute puppy playing with a ball and cheering up a deary day at the office to the strains of “Wake Up Happy!” by Howes & Slatter… what’s not to love?!
