    Soundhouse Residency at the Traverse Theatre

    "Rocks like the E-Street Band." Uncut Magazine

    "Fantastic stuff." Bob Harris BBC Radio 2

    Velvet-voiced Dean Owens is one of Scotland’s most acclaimed and established singer songwriters, with fans including Bob Harris, Irvine Welsh and Russell Brand. 

    For 2015 Dean has a new Nashville-recorded album Into the Sea out and you can expect to hear some of the new material at the gig, plus plenty from his huge back catalogue of favourites.

    Dean’s music has been described as Celtic Americana with a rocky pop edge, and draws as much from his Scottish roots, especially his home town of Leith (referenced and loved by the Proclaimers) as from his US heroes. The emotional honesty in his songs shines through as he sings about people and places, love and regrets, drawing favourable comparisons with the likes of Springsteen. A gritty yet lyrical Scottish sensibility, delivered with a searingly soulful voice.

    Dean’s solo career has seen him tour far and wide, including in Europe, USA and Australia. He is also highly regarded among other musicians and has played shows and toured with Steve Earle, Emmylou Harris, Joan As Policewoman, Eddi Reader, John Hiatt and Nanci Griffith, to name but a few.

    In his early career Dean was the front-man of the much loved and lauded Americana band The Felsons. Since launching his solo career he has produced 5 albums, including the highly regarded Whisky Hearts (also recorded in Nashville), New York Hummingbird (recorded in the Big Apple with some exceptional New York-based musicians) and Cash Back (Songs I Learned From Johnny) album, inspired by one of his lifelong idols, Johnny Cash.
