DAN OWEN, Josh Fuchs, Alex Maxwell
Beyond Presents are delighted to announce Dan Owen’s Edinburgh performance on his 2016 UK tour.
It has been a ground-breaking year for young singer-songwriter Dan Owen. The 23-year old has gone from playing to tiny audiences in backrooms of pubs to a run of impressive festivals dates, including Bushstock, The Great Escape and Glastonbury. Having clocked up over 150 shows to date, the Shrewsbury-native is now gearing up for a headline tour in April 2016.
Dan has recently finished recording his debut EP with Cam Blackwood (George Ezra). Dan was main support to Rae Morris on her UK tour, he played on the Communion New Faces tour with Seafret, Flyte and Jack Watts and headlined 3 sold out nights in his home town of Shrewsbury. Time Out have named Dan as one of their Rising Stars for the year.
When Dan first started out on the live circuit, an audience member filmed his live cover of ‘Ballad Of Hollis Brown’ – this is now sitting on 500k views on YouTube. Following those early live shows, he went on to win Best Young Artist at the British Blues Awards and a surprising accolade came from another audience member, Mick Fleetwood (of Fleetwood Mac), who hailed Dan “at the forefront of the new wave in British singer-songwriter talent”. Now, stepping away from the blues and writing new material, Dan is currently demoing tracks for a debut album release due early next year. Listen to his new track ‘Fall Like A Feather’ on Spotify here and a live version on YouTube here.
Uncommonly insightful lyrics and charming melodies flow naturally as Dan effortlessly wins over audiences wherever he plays.
