Simply Country features Dean Owens

Simply Country features Dean Owens

This week’s Simply Country programme on 100.8 Revival FM presented by Leslie-Ann Scoular has as its featured artist, Glasgow born Dean Owens.

Singer-songwriter Dean Owens has a crystalline voice and a sound that meshes country rock with acoustic ballads combining elements of Woody Guthrie and Townes Van Zandt.

Dean Owens is one of Scotland’s most acclaimed and established singer songwriters, with fans including Bob Harris, Irvine Welsh and Russell Brand.

Armed with a searingly soulful voice and a neat line in memorable heart-twisting melodies, Dean filters his love of Americana through a gritty yet lyrical Scottish sensibility. A compelling and engaging live performer, with an innate ability to connect with any audience.


In his early career, Dean was the front-man of the much loved Scottish Americana band The Felsons. His music has taken him far and wide, including Europe, USA and Australia. He has played shows and toured with the Mavericks, Steve Earle, Emmylou Harris and Joan As Policewoman, to name just a few.

Originally from Glasgow, Dean is now living and based in Leith, Edinburgh. Visit the Simply Country playlist here.
