Dan Owen announced today that he will embark on his own headline show Upstairs at Whelan’s, December 16th. This is after the release of his highly anticipated EP “Open Hands and Enemies” on October 19th. Tickets for his headline show are €11.75 available from Thursday at 9am from usual outlets and here.
His latest video for his single “Made to Love you” taken from his upcoming EP can be watched here .
His captivating songwriting and relentless touring has seen Dan already develop a fervent fanbase, which resulted in him selling out his headline show at London’s St.Pancras Old Church earlier this month.
Dan has just completed a 30-date European tour in support of Birdy, this continues when he supports Birdy on two consecutive nights at The Olympia Theatre this October 25th & 26th.
The singer was such a huge fan of Dan that she finished every night of her tour inviting him onstage to duet on her 2015 hit ‘Let It All Go’. He’s also been invited back to head out on the road with her again for more shows in the autumn.
The Shrewsbury vocal powerhouse has been turning heads ever since he first started playing live ten years ago, at the tender age of 13. He first rose to wider prominence after a video of him playing a stunning live cover of Bob Dylan’s ‘The Ballad of Hollis Brown’ was uploaded by a random audience member to Reddit and became an overnight viral internet sensation.
Since then Dan’s own talents as a songwriter have blossomed and the result is a stunning selection of songs. His debut EP Bad for Me was released to high praise in 2015 and now ‘Made to Love You’ is the first taste of his upcoming Open Hands A nd Enemies EP.
Open Hands And Enemies sees Dan straddling swooning soul, throaty blues and carefully crafted pop sentiments, and is due for release on October 19th.
