Owen focused on film scoring (inspired by John Williams) and bass while attending Berklee College of Music, but post graduation, he returned to the stage and began recording and releasing his own music. Invited to audition for NBC’s “The Voice,” he performed his way to the live shows, and became the first contestant ever to play bass on the show. The experience only solidified Owen’s commitment to creating music that he truly believes in.
Following “The Voice,” Owen moved to Nashville, TN, where he has written and collaborated with artists in a number of musical styles - such as CMT’s “Nashville” star, Charles Esten, and electronic dance artist Vowed - while continuing to develop his own personal sound.
Inspired by classic songwriting from genres as diverse as Folk and R&B, Owen’s unique blend of modern pop sensibilities and singer-songwriter introspection makes for songs authentically his own. “I started making music because it was a way to say what I couldn’t with words alone. As soon as I realized that, music went from something I loved and appreciated to something I absolutely had to do.”
