Dan Owen announces show at Actress & Bishop

May 30, 2017 in News

Shrewsbury singer Dan Owen has announced the release of ‘Moonlight’, the first single to come since signing a major deal with Atlantic Records. A reworked version of the 2016 track, which featured on his Open Hands and Enemies EP, ‘Moonlight’ is a haunting love ballad and an intimate insight into Dan’s stunning songwriting and jaw-dropping vocal abilities. The song has been featured on Spotify’s ‘New Music Friday’ playlist in eight countries across Europe, including the UK, upon release today.

Dan has gained attention and critical acclaim across the world with his deep, soulful, blues-infected tones. At the end of last year he was a prominent figure in a number of high profile tips for 2017 including The Independent who said, “Dan Owen has the most incredible voice and a down-to-earth charm that’s proving a hit with fans.”

He has just completed a sold out headline tour across the UK and Europe following the release of his Open Hands and Enemies EP last year, which saw him enter the Top 40 iTunes Album Chart and top the Singer/Songwriter Chart upon release. Dan has quickly established himself as one of the UK’s most impressive new talents. Now having signed with Atlantic Records, and with a debut album due to follow, he is set to become an even more formidable and impressive musical figure.

New Faces Tour comes to Birmingham

September 7, 2015 in News

Communion, the hugely respected independent promoter and label, is taking its ‘New Faces’ on the road once again, in what is now the fourth instalment of the biannual tour. Continuing in the previous vein of encouraging the uprise of promising new talent, this year’s line-up consists of some of the most exciting new acts coming out of Britain right now.

The label team up with Birmingham Promoters for the Birmingham date on Sat 21st November at The Rainbow (tickets). The tour, which takes its name from the influential New Faces compilation album, features some on the UK’s most hotly tipped artists.

 Topping the bill this year are the hugely exciting Yorkshire-born duo Seafret. Making huge waves with their continuously brilliant output over the past year or so, starting with their debut single ‘Give Me Something’ which topped The Hype Machine charts in the summer of 2014. The pair will be bringing a full live band to the table, a rare occurrence since their inception a little over a year ago – and this is a performance which is not to be missed.

Next up is a band who are without a doubt flying the flag for British indie-pop, London based quartet Flyte, who are sure to stun crowds up and down the country with their anthemic brand of guitar-led pop.

The final two acts on this edition’s bill are equally as exciting. Shrewsbury born singer-songwriter Dan Owen has been quietly plying his trade over the last twelve months or so, and is now set to take his wonderfully powerful vocals and unique blend of blues-infused acoustic sounds to a much wider audience.

Last but not least, we have Brighton’s very own Jack Watts – with a voice so fragile and beautiful, and instrumentally one of the most impressive and imaginative we’ve heard all year, his live show is one that is something totally and completely unforgettable.
