  More info

 As the Josh Owen Band put the finishing touches to their long awaited debut studio album, Josh is touring WA with his stunning solo show showcasing the songs from his critically acclaimed solo acoustic CD “Do You Wonder”. Honed in the musical melting pot of Melbourne’s Brunswick Street, Josh’s modern day spin on spiritual soul, a melange of funk, jazz, soul and reggae, creates an upbeat and sensual urban soundscape that stretches the bounds of roots music.

 Josh Owen has seen his first three independent releases, a live band album, a studio band EP and a solo acoustic mini-album, receive massive critical acclaim and airplay all over Australia, including Triple J, RRR, PBS, FBI, ABC 702, 774 & 891, Dig Radio, RTR, ZZZ, EdgeFM and many more.

Save Me Save Me was voted 1 on Triple J’s Unearthed Roots chart and came in second in the semi-final round of UncharTed, the Tooheys Extra Dry online band comp, after being nominated as the Australian Community Radio finalist. Both band CDs have been released in Japan and a track has been released on a Brazilian surf compilation. 

The band have become festival regulars with appearances at the Pyramid Rock Festival (06/07), Blues at Bridgetown, Apollo Bay Music Festival (07), Melbourne 2007 Cultural Festival, and performed to 20,000 at Federation Square on New Year’s Eve (06/07). Josh has toured New Zealand twice, featuring on the Soundsplash Festival in 2007, and has appeared at the Frankston Guitar Festival, Narooma Blues Festival, Queenscliff Music Festival and Woodford Folk Festival, Swan Valley Blues & Roots Festival and The Darling Harbour Jazz & Blues Festival.

The Josh Owen Band are always spreading soulful music far and wide by touring WA, SA, Qld, NSW and Tas on a regular basis. Josh has toured Australia and New Zealand as part of Reggae legend Ernest Ranglin's band, including the Adelaide International Guitar Festival. He was also handpicked to back Third World's lead singer Bunny Rugs during his Australasian tour and Sydney Festival shows, and has also kept up a grueling pace touring as a solo artist.

2009 saw Josh tour as guitarist for Toni Childs on a 30 date national tour including 7 shows with Jackson Browne. “There is a striking strength and intensity in the sound coming from a man seemingly strumming and singing away effortlessly. Plucking beautiful blues and roots from his array of guitars and moving vocally from sweetly whispered melodies to climbing gospel tones ….. there is something sublimely unique about the way Owen lays his soul bare in his music.” – Emma Baille, PBS review "a sexy fusion of cataclysmic soul rhythms and white hot funk." - Buzz Magazine

Josh Owen Band Live Reviews

“They tick all the boxes... Brilliant, talented and oh-so-very nice... (Josh) gave everybody a masterclass in how to transfer musical skill into a decent song” .... Roadkill (live review) FasterLouder.com.au

“The Josh Owen Band epitomise a perfect fusion of chunky riffage and feel-good soul bounce” Jesse Shrock, (live review) Beat Magazine

What the critics are saying about Josh Owen (solo) “Do You Wonder” “intimate atmosphere highlighting his soulful, convincing voice and superb guitar' 4 stars. - Billy Pinnell, MAG

“has a depth to it that a lot of other 'roots' artists don't seem to possess.” - Sam Fell, Rhythms Magazine

“tasteful, pared-back soul .... inspired instrumental textures” - Jesse Shrock, Beat Magazine

“His voice is rich and nuanced... hear the gravitas in his groove” - Simone, Beat Magazine

“Jack Johnson-esque sensitive dood music” -Clem Bastow, Inpress Magazine

  "Josh is that rare combination of both a naturally talented and well-schooled musician. Whether it’s funk, blues or reggae, the overriding element for Josh is the infusion of soul and he combines these genres to produce his very own original sound." - Pedro Manoy, The Drum Media, Sydney

“The Melbourne based talented funk trio Josh Owen Band is full of funk, reggae and roots taste. Josh's melodic and funky tunes remind me of PRINCE (Josh sounds like he inherited Prince's DNA for musical talent), and his laid-back melody has hooks of "Surf Music". I can't wait to listen to their upcoming studio recording album” - Jun Maegawara, Ad Lib Magazine, Tokyo
