Here’s a blog from Owens about the new releases:

“In 2015 I went on a personal journey of sorts. Getting as lost as I possibly could in hopes of finding myself. I toured the United States in a rental car, playing your living rooms & driving hours upon hours in unfamiliar places – re-examining pieces of myself I had forgotten about. Desperately searching for a way to fall back in love with the love of my life, music. Years of obsession had left me lacking passion, and the voices in my head had silenced all confidence… but I found myself still breathing.

Along the ride, I connected with faces of the past – and together, we created from our hearts, no intentions, no fear, and no overthinking allowed. We chased our visions with reckless abandon, and didn’t allow worries to steer us in its lackluster directions.

These songs are from my Las Vegas sessions. A week slow dancing with myself in the blistering Nevada heat to Frank Sinatra’s “A Man Alone” & laughing with my good friend Kane Churko. I have found that “adult” is the best way to describe the sound of the songs.

I hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoyed creating them.
