Dean Owens & The Southerners (Album Launch)
Award winning Scottish singer songwriter Dean Owens is widely hailed as one of UK's finest troubadours, with fans including Trainspotting author Irvine Welsh and BBC legend "Whispering" Bob Harris.

The Southerners are his new power trio  aka the formidable talents of award winning multi instrumentalist Tom Collison on keys and bass guitar (sometimes both at the same time) and guitar maestro Jim Maving on electric, delta slide and mandolin.  The Southerners' debut on the English tour circuit in June 2019 met with exuberant standing ovations and several sellouts.

He's delighted to be bringing it all back home to launch his new album - The Man From Leith (The Best of Dean Owens), released (as CD, digital and gatefold-sleeve vinyl) on Eel Pie Records on 20 Mar 2020 - at Leith Dockers Club. And yes, if you're at the gig, you can get your hands on it a full week before its official release!

Armed with a searingly soulful voice, skilfully crafted songs and earworm inducing melodies, Dean's music conjures the wild romanticism of the open road, distilling the Scottish and Americana into a unique blend of celtic spirit, country soul. The unfettered enthusiasm of a rock n roller coupled with the sympathetic delivery of folk's best storytellers.

A Dean Owens gig isn't just about the songs though. Dean is also a witty raconteur (ie a "blether"!), with anecdotes about his travels and the songs  from a 7 album solo career, and his days with Scotland's original Americana/alt country/cowpunk band, the Felsons - peppered throughout his set. His performance takes his audience from tears to laughter to rocking out, in the course of just a few songs.

"One of Scotland's best troubadours... fabulous" - Bob Harris (BBC)
