Tartan Texans - Dean Owens


Tartan Texans is another occasional theme which seems to have slipped off the schedule somewhat recently.
However I shall persevere as this particular series is pretty much nearing its conclusion.

Dean Owens coincidentally first appeared on CCM on this very week last year with New Mexican Monday. He has also featured previously in the Tartan Texan series as lead singer of The Felsons.

My previous post gives some bio blurb on the man from Leith  described by Irvine Welsh as "Scotland's most engaging and haunting singer- songwriter"
He is held in high regard by his colleagues with the likes of Karine Polwart, Will Kimbrough, Thad Cockrell, Robert Reynolds and the mighty Al Perkins all appearing on his records.

Today's first track is Strangers Again from Deano's 2004 record on Vertical Records My Town.
It is followed by Whisky Hearts the title track from his 2007 album on Vermillion.
He is often on the road and if you get the chance to see him I guarantee you a good night out
