Singer/Songwriter neil bradley owen from Hurricane, Utah has just announced his 3rd independent album release, entitled "Peace & Harmony". Neil's albums are distributed by Heartrise Music, of Logan, Utah. Owen's music is an eclectic mix of acoustic blues and soul/folk, with touches of gospel thrown in to keep it interesting. Recorded at Soularium Studios, in Alpine Utah, with Producer/Player Ryan Tilby, this new album of Owen's has a distinctive live studio feel, and as always with neil's music, has that ever present warm feel to it, which comes from his use of numerous acoustic intruments including- guitars, dobro, mandolins, fiddle, and harmonica. Neil has many performance dates scheduled throughout Utah and Arizona this summer to promote the new album, including a big show at the IAMA (Intermountain Acoustic Music Assoc.) Founder's Folk & Bluegrass Festival on saturday, July 14th,at Snowbird Utah, where last summer he won the Songwriters Showcase Contest. First Place among nationwide entries, earns him the right to return this year in the Festival's main lineup, to perform a full set of music. Owen or "Blue" as his musician friends call him, can be seen locally at a special concert in his hometown of Hurricane, at the City Park on Main street, saturday, the 30th of June at 8pm.

PROMO PRESS KIT BLURB- With 2 well received Independently released CD's behind him, and another coming the summer of 2007, award-winning songwriter neil bradley owen, or “blue” as many of his close friends call him, seems to be on his way. A genuine, heartfelt, bluesy, singer/songwriter of the first degree, Neil’s songs prove to be instantly memorable, with melodies and lyrics that speak to the heart......just picture if you will, a bunch of folks with their guitars, mandolins, upright bass, harmonica, and anything else anyone can shake or beat, sitting around on an old, wooden, rustic front porch, playing and singing songs about what makes life worth living. Music that just makes you feel good. Bluesy, acoustic soul/folk with that ever present earthy undertone, of those warm acoustic instruments... that's Neil Bradley Owen music. Review of Neil’s album ”Front Porch Prose” “The songs aren't necessarily country...not quite folk... bluesy, but not too rowdy. With enough fiery passion burning, to make sure no one falls asleep! Just the right balance… Songs that seem to speak to the heart, from the heart. I know that sounds corny, but it’s refreshing to me to find music, so unpretentious and honest, that is well-crafted enough to just flow and be enjoyed.” “Neil seems to bridge the gap between the ultra-cool arrangements of Enoch Train, with the smooth conversational storytelling of Steven Curtis Chapman, and the warmth of James Taylor, and we need more James Taylor songwriting and singing in this world!”
