Dean Owens: Into the Sea
"Scotland's most engaging and haunting singer songwriter" Irvine Welsh

Celtic Americana with a rootsy pop edge and a touch of Springsteenesque rock.
Velvet-voiced Dean Owens is one of Scotland’s most acclaimed and established singer songwriters, with fans including Bob Harris, Irvine Welsh and Russell Brand.
Armed with a searingly soulful voice and a neat line in memorable heart-twisting melodies, Dean is a compelling and engaging live performer, both solo and with his Whisky Hearts Band.  Dean’s career has seen him tour far and wide, including in Europe, USA and Australia. He  has played shows and toured with Steve Earle, Emmylou Harris, Joan As Policewoman and John Hiatt to name but a few.
In his early career Dean was the front-man of the much loved and lauded Americana band The Felsons.  Since launching his solo career he has produced 5 albums, including the highly regarded Whisky Hearts (also recorded in Nashville). 


His new album – Into the Sea - is released on 11 May 2015, on Drumfire Records.  It was recorded in Nashville, Tennessee with producer Neilson Hubbard and a whole host of amazing US musicians, including award winning guitarist Will Kimbrough and renowned singer-songwriters Kim Richey and Suzy Bogguss.  A single from the album - Valentine’s Day in New York was playlisted on BBC Radio Scotland.

The album will be launched (with the Whisky Hearts band) in Edinburgh and Glasgow as follows:
Sun 26 Apr - The Glad Cafe, Glasgow  Tickets - £10 in advance 
Mon 4 May - Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh  Tickets (£10)
