Owen Denvir (Owen Denver)

"A songwriter of subtle complexity that belies his tender years" - Daily Mirror

  Training as a young orchestral viola player, Belfast-born Owen Denvir was drawn by the alternative sound of Bon Iver over Bach. These two styles of music influence his songwriting, which Hot Press magazine have described as "honest, personal... complex and affecting".

"Honest and personal song-craft, paired with beautiful vocals... This Northern star is rising fast" - Hot Press magazine

  Owen's DIY production has totalled over 80,000 streams on Spotify and 2,000,000 views on videos across Facebook and Youtube, even drawing the attention of Coldplay on Twitter. Coupled with support slots for dodie, JC Stewart and Ryan McMullan as well as Irish TV appearances on BBC 1's "Nolan Live", ITV's "UTV Life" and TV3's "The 6 O'Clock Show" and major Irish radio playlisting, his music has stretched far beyond its quiet beginnings of his bedroom studio.

"Well worth a look" - Coldplay
"Will leave you mesmerised" - Independent.ie

  After spending the last year collaborating with the charity 'Live Music Now' - who provide professional music for care homes and special schools - Owen's songwriting has been shaped by the moving stories of the residents and families involved in the scheme. New single 'Bad For You' and b-side 'The Lie That You Think I Am' were both inspired by elements from fond memories and stories from dementia patients.

"One of Belfast's gems" - Gigging NI
"One of the finest talents around in Northern Ireland today" - Ralph McLean, BBC Radio Ulster
"Lyrically and vocally expressive... Denvir's classical background provides an intricately delicate musical scaffold" - State.ie

Owen Denvir (Owen Denver)

"Mesmerising... one of the most amazing releases in recent times" - Stephen McCauley, BBC Radio Ulster

After spending 2 years collaborating with the charity 'Live Music Now' (who provide professional music for care homes) Denvir recorded and produced the album "Music & Memories: Voices of Belfast" with friend and talented musician Peter J. McCauley.

Over 6 months they collected recordings of party pieces, stories and jokes from residents in East & West Belfast care homes. These snippets were then adapted into modern/experimental works via a unique set of arrangements featuring piano, guitar, viola and ukulele, bringing together voices from across the city in a blend of nostalgia and Belfast wit.
