Dan has gained attention and critical acclaim across the world with his deep, soulful, blues-infected tones. At the end of last year he was a prominent figure in a number of high profile tips for 2017 including The Independent who said, “Dan Owen has the most incredible voice and a down-to-earth charm that’s proving a hit with fans.” He has just completed a sold out headline tour across the UK and Europe following the release of his Open Hands and Enemies EP last year, which saw him enter the Top 40 iTunes Album Chart and top the Singer/Songwriter Chart upon release. It has clocked up over 6.3 MILLION streams on Spotify and had its singles top the platform’s Viral Chart in Belgium, hit No.2 in France and chart in a further four countries. Having just completed a sold out headline tour across the UK and Europe, Dan has announced two headline shows for October this year.
