Now I've never claimed to be a music expert, or any expert for that matter - you know jack of all master of zilch - but I've listened to my fair share and I love when it comes so easy for people - Dave Owens is one of those real down home people who it comes easy for...it's real music and flows naturally.
Listen for yourself to the man and his guitar singing my favorite song on the album: Blackheart (which is by the way about HOPE, in case you thought otherwise) at a recent Hard Rock Cafe performance:
Pretty easy on the ears don't you think?
He may or may not take this as a compliment but Dave Owens has an almost John Mayerish feel to me but also making a 90s music reference to a band I loved Toad the Wet Sprocket (remember them?) - and the down home feel of maybe an earthy Tom Pettyish style without the hippie hair
Love Via Music by Dave Owens
Check It Because: It has some great songs including both of the videos you can listen to here but I think the best part for me listening to the whole disk all the way through was The Sneaky Song the way they snuck in there with the amazing horns and a beat that wasn't like the other songs on the album and yet it still somehow fell into the same feel as the rest of the cuts on the CD.
