Dean Owens – Into the Sea (3 stars)

Dean Owens – Into the Sea

(Drumfire Records)

Americana-influenced Scottish singer-songwriter's latest album

This is Scottish songwriter Dean Owens’ most Nashville-sounding album to date – which is not surprising given it was recorded in the city – replete with languid verses, soaring choruses and wistful lyrics that talk of lost love and faded aspirations. Owens is a songwriter who knows how to pull on the heartstrings with driving melodies and dynamic harmonies and this has plenty of both.

Out now.

Dean Owens

Scotland's Americana troubadour.
