Official album launch gig for Dean Owens Musician — Official's brand new album SOUTHERN WIND (release date 16 Feb on At The Helm Records)

One of Scotland’s finest singer/songwriters, and the first Scottish musician to be officially invited to showcase at Americanafest in Nashville.

Armed with a searingly soulful voice, skillfully crafted stories and earworm-generating melodies, Dean’s music conjures the open road’s wild romanticism, combining the primal sounds of two very different countries. In the songs you’ll hear the legacy of the open plains drifters and box-car jumpers, the perfume of Autumn heather, the copper burn of a single malt or a smoky late night bar-room bourbon, the unfettered enthusiasm of early rock ‘n’ roll coupled with the sympathetic delivery of folk’s storytellers.

His Whisky Hearts band – Amy Geddes, Brian McAlpine, Craig Ross, Jim McDermott and Michael McCann — is a mighty all star line-up, who can rock up a storm, with flashes of folk and a touch of twang.

Southern Wind was recorded in Nashville with a distinctive swampy groove; this is the FIRST chance to hear the songs live, and get your hands on a CD in advance of its official release.

One of Scotland’s best troubadours… fabulous… Bob Harris (BBC)

Scotland’s most engaging and haunting singer-songwriter… Irvine Welsh

Magical...a gem of a gig… a must see – Ricky Ross (BBC)

Also on the bill: THE JENNY STURGEON TRIO
