Owen Kortz

Owen Kortz is an award-winning singer/songwriter from Denver, Colorado. Formerly the leader of the popular Owen Kortz Trio, Owen went solo in spring 2013 and just finished his 3rd album, “OK.”

Owen’s music is a mix of introspective, funky, folksy and bluesy, with a smattering of humor — always personal and intimate, no matter how large the space, and always highly entertaining. His voice is a warm blanket and his deftly combined music and lyrics are a wash of summer rain — soothing but refreshing, making you think and feel, sometimes spurring you to jump out of your seat and celebrate! Owen strives to reflect a traditional folk/pop vibe with a message that resonates today. He’s the “anti” musician — the antidote to our busy, over-digitized lives.

Owen has been compared to James Taylor and John Denver, and has performed at concerts with legendary guitarist Pat Metheny and YouTube phenom Kina Grannis, and has recorded with the Bissonette brothers (Ringo Starr, Joe Satriani). Owen’s music has been featured on KNGU-Channel 2 News, and he is a founding member of the Singer/Songwriter program at the University of Colorado at Denver, where he is on faculty.
