Tune in to the “Roadtunes Sessions” tonight, Tuesday, January 3rd, at 8pm, for a live performance by Jamaican-born troubadour Owen Plant. Owen lives in San Francisco, CA where he writes and performs his music and from whence he tours and peers out at the world. His writing style is reminiscent of introspective singer/songwriters from the ’70s but also incorporates his Caribbean-ness on the regular. Rasta Folk? Reggae Pop? Singer/Songwriter Dub/Ska/Americana? No catchy hybrid genre yet coined (all submissions are welcome).
Owen has released many albums and EPs, both solo and with bands, since 2000. He most recently fronted the Sunshine Brothers, an upbeat Santa Barbara band now on hiatus. For the most up-to-date Owen Plant music and news go to owenplant.net. Owen will be headlining the Cambridge Drive Concert Series this Friday January 6 at 550 Cambridge Dr. in Goleta.
