ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Irish-born, folk & country music singer, songwriter and guitarist, Owen Moore is a very familiar face in country music venues and folk clubs around the south coast of England.

A well-travelled veteran of the country music & folk music scenes, Owen plays regularly in bands and duos and also occasionally appears as a solo performer. His music is widely available on numerous internet websites and he can often be seen and heard playing Live in town centres and high streets around the south, as he is an inveterate busker and street performer too.

Over the past few years Owen has also developed into a writer of novel country music and folk-style songs with interesting themes, intriguing words and catchy tunes. His original songs have featured on folk and country music radio shows in the U.K., Ireland, France, Germany, Scandinavia, Italy, Australia, New Zealand and in the U.S.A.

In addition, Owen has recorded many other songs along the way by some of his favourite songwriters. His album, "Songs For Passing Strangers" collects together works by writers such as Billy Joe Shaver, Chris Rea, Lesley Duncan, Roger Davies, Penni McLaren Walker, Bob Coltman and J J Cale and includes songs that have been performed by Johnny Cash, Don Williams, Liam Clancy, Christy Moore and Woody Guthrie

Here are some press reviews of Owen Moore's albums of his own original songs...


"HAND-PAINTED SONGS" - (2018)

"It's like Townes Van Zandt transposed to Limerick... ...Consistently enjoyable listening." - Fatea online magazine - May 2018

"The latest release in Owen Moore's fast-growing catalogue. Owen does everything himself - including writing all the songs - and whether by chance or design, he's produced a gently happy sing-along album." - R2 Rock & Reel magazine - September / October 2018


"SONGS FROM SMALL HOTEL ROOMS BY THE SEA" - (2017)

"Album of the week" - Celtic Music Radio - December 2017

"Another well penned set of original songs well worthy of your attention." - Fatea online magazine - December 2017

"A positive album that is perfect listening for a lazy weekend." - Maverick magazine - December 2017/January 2018

"A collection of songs inspired by various corners of Britain's coast as seen through the eyes of a wandering minstrel. A bit singer-songwriter, a bit country and all very entertaining." - R2 Rock & Reel magazine - March / April 2018


"SECRET SONGS THROUGH AN OPEN WINDOW" - (2016)

"West Country based Irish singer songwriter who trades in the easy rolling sounds of folk-country... Delivered in a relaxed style and warm voice that might be best compared to Don Williams... Liltingly easy on the ear... Sit back, close your eyes and sip a Bushmills and honey..." - Fatea online magazine - November 2016

“Owen Moore is a veteran singer/guitarist and songwriter and "Secret Songs Through An Open Window" is his fifth album. It boasts a light touch in performance and production, an underlying country feel and a bunch of songs that are easy on the ear with intriguing titles like, "An Irish Song And A Spanish Guitar" “. - R2 Rock & Reel magazine - March / April 2017


"SHORT SONGS FROM THIN AIR" - (2015)

"Owen Moore is a one-man record business and "Short Songs From Thin Air" is his fourth album of original material. It's gentle and refreshingly melodic with a country edge... He might just brighten your day." - R2 Rock & Reel magazine - November/December 2014

"Even in the titles to his albums you can spot the theme, with the emphasis on songs, the craft of writing these Moore has clearly taken time to hone. "Short Songs From Thin Air" ...one of the finest titles to come this way in a long time... ...a thoroughly enjoyable collection of songs that will make you feel infinitely better about the world after listening to it." - New Country UK online magazine - October 2014


"SIMPLICATED SONGS" - (2013)

"Owen Moore has put together another delightful album of his "simple" little songs. This is an album that harks back to the days of old, when songs had memorable melodies and catchy lyrics that captured the more innocent side of life. Typical is the jogging
"Hang Around With You", a wonderful little love song. "The West Coast of Kentucky" reminds of George Strait's "Ocean Front Property". Slightly country, occasionally celtic, but at all times rather pleasant." - Maverick magazine - November/December 2013

“Three albums in and Owen Moore is still writing all the songs, singing all the vocal parts and playing all the instruments. "Simplicated Songs" is a set of country-influenced observations, although this time around he has spread his musical wings." - R2 Rock & Reel magazine - September/October 2013

"Owen Moore has put together an album that is sunny like the Bournemouth weather." - Celtic Music Radio, Album of the Week - September 2013

"An album that is sunny and breezy. Light and hook-laden, the country styled songs draw on both Irish and American influences to provide themes that are instantly accessible. You can feel the influences of the likes of Glen Campbell and Johnny Cash reverberating around the album and that's no bad thing. "Simplicated Songs" could just as easily be called Songs To Get Your Attention." - Fatea online magazine - June 2013


"RAINY DAY SONGS" - (2011)

"Excellent songs. Well produced, sounds professional and is radio friendly. This impressive second set gains from a much-improved production showing Owen's skill in layering and arranging... ...the vocals are nicely done... ..."She's Still Wearing Blue" could have been lifted out of the Roy Orbison songbook... ...well thought-out lyrics... ...well constructed melodies..." - Maverick magazine - May 2012

"Clever, catchy and very country... ...pleasant and relaxed... ...just crying out to be covered..." - Online Country UK - February 2012

"Owen Moore has continued with a winning formula here. A talented instrumentalist, he has a remarkable feel for the genre, with a perfectly-suited voice for it, slightly gravelly and on the verge of fragility. A pleasing variety of rhythms and moods and an excellent introduction for anyone who has never heard contemporary country and would like to get the feel for what it is all about." - R2 Rock & Reel magazine - March 2012

"Owen Moore's slightly quirky take on country has got that certain something to it. This is country with an edge and a sparkle in the lyrics. A delightful album." - Fatea online magazine - November 2011


"WINDSWEPT SONGS ON A BROKEN GUITAR" - (2011)

"A very likeable performer. His songs are of such a high standard that with the right publishing deal, Nashville could be beating a path to his door." - R2 Rock & Reel magazine - March 2011

"The songs are all country tinged with a pop consciousness, melodic, good humoured and show promise for the future. Nearest comparison, straight off the top of my head, would be Don Gibson." - Maverick magazine - November 2010

"Owen writes in a style that has a refreshing touch. A heart-warming experience." - Fatea online magazine - November 2010

"...a new country songwriter to keep an ear out for is Owen Moore. His debut CD displays real talent. His gentle ode to an aged cowboy, "Ride Along", for instance, is perfectly crafted..." - Country Music People magazine - September 2010
