OwensieAugust 16, 2009
I probably shouldn’t post this today as I have heard the name Michael Owens all over Twitter- evidently he is a famous footballer who has committed some act of treason recently.
Thanks to the guys at Thumped (@thumped) I have come across another Owen but this one has some delightful folk tunes and a beguiling sound. Even if Owensie has that recent Irish affliction of adding ‘sie’ to a word it doesn’t affect his simple guitar plucking and a vocal performance that is close to but not quite falsetto.
He only has a few tunes up on his MySpace with a little bit of history so head over there for a look!
