I first heard of Brian Owens through Jarred Gastreich after he put together a 24-minute, live video, of a recent performance at the Old Rock House in St. Louis. After just a few minutes into the video, it was clear that Brian is a class-A, genuine performer.
His brand of soul music, inspired by the Motown vintage, may feel comfortable and familiar, but his (and his band's) performance is what sets the experience apart.
It is with this background that I present to you two Show Me Shows recently filmed in NYC, on a trip to Sony Red Distributing.
Enjoy them, as they are a rare-glimpse of an off-stage Brian Owens. An intimate look into the "new voice of American soul."
