Celtic Americana with a rootsy pop groove and a touch of Springsteenesque rock.
Filtering his love of Americana through a gritty yet lyrical Scottish sensibility, and armed with a searingly soulful voice, Dean Owens is one of Scotland’s most acclaimed and established singer songwriters, with fans including Bob Harris, Irvine Welsh and Russell Brand.
A compelling and engaging live performer, Dean’s songs draw as much from his Scottish roots, especially his home town of Leith, as from his US heroes. The emotional honesty shines through as he sings about people and places, love and regrets.
The former Felsons front man has released five albums and toured round the world, including tours with the likes of Steve Earle and Emmylou Harris.
