Southern Wind – Dean Owens – CMR’s Album Of the Week – 24 February, 2018.
Proud Scot, Dean Owens writes brilliant songs and Southern Wind, out now on At The Helm Records, is ample proof of that. The 12-tracks here take listeners on a glorious journey through the best of roots music, winning them over before the first track has finished.
A son of Leith, he writes with honesty, respect and his music conjures up the wild romanticism of the open road. Southern Wind is full of twists, triumphs and tragedies and all the songs live long in the memory courtesy of wide-screen melodies and heartfelt lyrics.
Recorded in Nashville, the album never loses restless troubadour Dean’s Celtic spirit and country soul – Scotland’s most engaging and haunting singer/songwriter, as he’s been described.
