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 authora Irvine Welsh and Ian Rankin, and BBC broadcasting legend 'Whispering' Bob Harris. 

Hard to pin down to a particular genre, his music is a unique blend of Scottish roots and Americana – the unfettered enthusiasm of a rock n roller coupled with the sympathetic delivery of folk’s best storytellers.  

His new power trio The Southerners brings together the formidable talents of award winning multi instrumentalist Tom Collison on keys and bass guitar (sometimes both at the same time) and guitar maestro Jim Maving (Case Hardin, Don Gallardo) on electric, delta slide and mandolin. Three outstanding live performers, their gigs are marked by a joyous onstage chemistry, and exuberant standing ovations.

Dean’s music has taken him all over the world, particularly throughout the USA, where he has made most of his eight solo albums, including the upcoming Sinner’s Shrine, recorded with 'desert noir' legends Calexico.
