Album Notes
Owen Moore's reverential take on the country/gospel, modern-day standard, "The Far Side Banks Of Jordan", (written by award-winning songwriter Terry Smith), is recorded here in a style that is very much in keeping with the way Johnny Cash and June Carter used to perform this classic song on stage. At the same time as issuing this new single, Owen Moore has just released his seventh album of his own original compositions, called, "HAND-PAINTED SONGS".

In addition, there are six previous albums of all-original Owen Moore songs. Here are some press reviews:


"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


"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

Album 4 - "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

Album 3 - "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

Album 2 - "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


"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
