Today I would like to introduce you to songwriter and producer Almost Owen, the singing drummer who releases new music in Boston regularly.

Songwriter/Producer Almost Owen has been quietly grinding it out, waiting for his moment. Since moving back to the US from India where he worked as music teacher from 2013-2014, the 26 year old has played nearly 500 shows. He’s toured massive music festivals in Panama, theaters in China and India, intimate sets at UNESCO in France, and beer soaked clubs in his native Boston, MA. He’s also written and produced songs for other artists, taking time to hone in on his own sound and message. Gearing up to release his own projects, Almost Owen is ready to show everyone exactly who he is.

I had a chance to listen to some of his music recently and have to say that I am quite impressed.  He’s very talented. I have a real treat for you guys today! Here is a look at his brand spankin’ new video: What You Do to Me (Studio Version): https://www.almostowenmusic.com/whatyoudotome – Soundcloud link on page.  I absolutely love it and can’t wait to hear what you guys think.

Now that I have heard some of his music, I am super excited to go to one of his shows so I can see him perform live.

Wednesdays at Lucky’s Lounge
