New single finally!!
Over the past couple weeks I have been busy practicing for shows, writing new music, and managing the new album. If you haven’t yet, you can become a fan of Harris Owens Music on Facebook to get more up to date updates. I’m happy to say the album has had many plays since it was released and is continuing to get noticed. It was most recently posted on http://doughnutmag.com/discover/harris-owens/
The plan from now on is to book a couple shows and spread the music as much as I can. Feel free to help! The next album coming out is a quick under the radar cover album called “Covers From Cover To Cover” featuring covers from Eddie Vedder, Kings Of Leon, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and many more.
I hope you guys are enjoying the album.
- Thanks, Harris
It has been a while since I updated this blog because I’ve been pretty busy on deciding what I’d like to do next with music. As many of you know I released an album last year called “Obstacles and Opportunities” and have not played to many shows, but I plan to over my gap year and the summer… Which leads me to my next announcement and reason to the blog title change… I will be taking a gap year this coming school year. I will write another update soon giving the details why I am taking a gap year. I changed the blog name because this will no longer be a blog for just promoting my music, but rather a blog to show my progress over my gap year. I will be traveling around the world and will be posting photos and stories here, so if you are younger and maybe interested in taking a gap year, I’ll be posting many of the things you might be interested in.
As far as my music goes, I will be releasing some new material very soon. I have just finished recording my first new single and plan on releasing it sometime this summer. The album following the single will be much different and will consist of experimenting with some types of music I may not be to familiar with (ex. Classical, jazz, etc.). The album will probably be pretty short and consist of around 8 or so songs.
To end out the summer I will be writing more for my side project “Faith Factory” which consists of pop / funk / big band grooves.
I will also be starting a band called “Dude Abides” with a good friend of mine, Sam Aquirre. There will be updates for that very soon.
Just got a copy of Relix’s March Magazine! A song of mine, “Hooray”, is on the free CD inside with a short bio! I thought I would only dream of being on the same CD as Dave Matthews Band, Slightly Stoopid, and Yonder Mountain String Band!! Album is still available here http://harrisowens.bandcamp.com/album/obstacles-and-opportunities for free, But only until the issue is out. You can also grab it on iTunes!
