ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Owen Plant is an acoustic artist out of Boston who writes, arranges and performs touching original songs that are often mixtures of pop and Caribbean music. He has packed rooms from Vermont to Key West and has enthusiastic followings on the West Coast and in the Midwest.

Fans of artists like Dave Matthews, David Byrne, Beck, John Mayer, Jack Johnson, and Norah Jones instantly fall in love with Owen's sound. His catchy and universally appealing melodies attract people of all ages and backgrounds. His powerful lyrics are refreshingly
honest and remarkably diverse, including various languages and themes.

Owen was exposed to Caribbean music on the island of Jamaica, where he was born. His music incorporates his vibrant heritage and echoes the styles of music greats Paul Simon, Bob Marley and James Taylor, singer/songwriters who, like Owen, went beyond acoustic-only music. People often describe his voice as a blend of Taylor, Marley and Cat Stevens, and yet it's distinctively his own.

He is a rare combination of the consummate singer/songwriter (i.e., Jackson Brown), dynamic performer (Marley, Sting, David Byrne), and poetic lyricist (Dylan, Simon, Tracy Chapman).

Owen's musical development began at age 7 with classical piano lessons. He performed in a children's group, where he was taught African and Caribbean
rhythms on the congas. The Children's Workshop, as it was called, toured the country playing traditional Jamaican and American pop songs, not surprisingly
two of the major threads in the tapestry that makes up his music today. He didn't pick up the guitar or begin writing songs until 1995. Within days, he had penned his first song.

Owen expanded his acoustic repertoire while the front man of critically acclaimed, Boston-based bands, Shake Senora and Kumina, writing and performing pop songs and exploring and combining a variety of genres.

There is a timeless quality in his pure and powerful voice, heartfelt lyrics, and progressive guitar style that he communicates from the stage with a compelling softness. Owen is one of this country's raw-talent troubadours.

amazing poet, incredible voice
the poetry on this cd is amazing - equal to the best i've heard. some songs are as good as any bob marley or paul simon lyrics. it's amazing to me that owen writes all of his own music & words. track #3 (don't mean to stare) is one of my favorite songs ever. his voice & guitar playing is as strong as the writing, i highly recommend all of his music.
