"A songwriter of subtle complexity that belies his tender years" -
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".
"What a voice! A wonderful talent" - Matt Lucas
personal song-craft, paired with beautiful vocals... This Northern star is rising fast" -

Owen's DIY production has totalled over 200,000 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.

Over the course of the year, Denvir has been releasing a trilogy of EPs:
"Sticks", "Stones" and "Bones". These are themed based on Sigmund Freud's theory of personality,
where every person is defined by a balance of 3 separate characteristics. The first EP "Sticks"
represents hesitancy and anxiety. The second EP "Stones" is a headstrong approach to life. The
final EP "Bones", which will be releasing early 2021, represents a healthy balance between the two.
Lead singles from "Sticks" ("Ghost" & "Stay") have topped the "RTE Radio One Recommends" playlist
and were selected by Spotify for Irish curated playlist "An Alternative Eire". Second EP "Stones"
has had lead single "This Could Be Love" featured by Scott Mills and Chris Stark on BBC Radio 5
Live, Janice Long on BBC Radio Wales and Gemma Bradley on BBC Radio ATL Introducing.
"One of the finest talents around in Northern Ireland today" - Ralph
McLean, BBC Radio Ulster
After spending the last year collaborating with the charity 'Live Music Now' - who
provide professional music for care homes and special schools - Owen recorded and produced the album
"Music & Memories: Voices of Belfast" alongside Peter J. McCauley (of Rams' Pocket Radio). This
side-project compiled performances and stories from residents of Belfast care homes, resulting in a
unique set of arrangements featuring guitar, piano, viola and ukulele, bringing together voices from
across the city in a blend of nostalgia and Belfast wit.
"One of Belfast's gems" - Gigging NI
"Lyrically and vocally
expressive... Denvir's classical background provides an intricately delicate musical
scaffold" - State.ie
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.
