Artist Feature

Owen Plant

Jamaican-born troubadour Owen Plant lives in Northern California where he writes and performs his music and from whence he tours and peers out at the world. He refers to his own style as Jamaican-Born, California Folk. It is reminiscent of introspective singer/songwriters from the ’70s and contemporary acoustic artists but also incorporates his Caribbean roots on many songs. Owen’s strong vocals evoke the emotional depth of Cat Stevens and the soulful passion of Bob Marley and you can hear James Taylor, Paul Simon and Leonard Cohen in his guitar work and writing. People who listen to artists like Amos Lee, Ray LaMontagne, Jack Johnson or Ziggy Marley love Owen’s stuff. Music fans who might consider these artists as ‘not their thing’ often surprise themselves by liking Owen anyway. His presence as a touring artist was thrown into high gear this summer when he joined the Vans Warped Tour for a month on the Acoustic Basement Stage. He will be on the West Coast portion of the tour again in 2013 in addition to his constant independent meanderings. For the most up-to-date Owen Plant music and news go to www.owenplant.net


"Not only can Plant sing effortlessly in two divergent modes, but he also accompanies himself on four instruments. Still, the greatest accomplishment on Beach Busker is the sense of optimism and genuine happiness that slides off of Plant’s acoustic guitar strings. We’re not sure if it’s Cali or Jamaica that holds the bigger place in Plant’s heart (he’s a San Fran resident and former Santa Barbara dweller), but he sings sincerely about his appreciation for both. On “Raise It up High” Plant nicely articulates the feeling that runs throughout Beach Busker. “We all come from some place, maybe the same place,” he sings, sweetly reminding us that roots run deep, but compassion runs deeper.” - Odette Blaisdell, Santa Barbara Independent
