Dean Owens and The Southerners

Award winning Scottish singer songwriter Dean Owens is widely hailed as one of UK’s finest troubadours, with fans including Trainspotting author Irvine Welsh and BBC broadcasting legend 'Whispering' Bob Harris. 

His new power trio, The Southerners brings together the formidable talents of award winning multi instrumentalist Tom Collison on keys and bass guitar and guitar maestro Jim Maving (Case Hardin, Don Gallardo) on electric, delta slide and mandolin.  

Armed with a searingly soulful voice, skilfully crafted songs and earworm inducing melodies, Dean’s music conjures the wild romanticism of the open road, distilling the Scottish and Americana into a unique blend of celtic spirit, country soul. The unfettered enthusiasm of a rock n roller coupled with the sympathetic delivery of folk’s best storytellers.

A witty raconteur, Dean's sets are peppered with anecdotes from his seven album solo career, and his days with Scotland’s original Americana/alt country/cow-punk band, the Felsons.
