PRODUCTION / LIBRARY MUSIC
Owen has a large back catalogue of library and production music placed with some excellent Publishers and in range of genres. He almost always has a new collection underway and is frequently commissioned to write entire albums. Owen’s favourite part of writing production music is the breadth of styles he’s asked to explore – from Punk to Modern Classical, Trailer Music to folk and everything in between.

MUSIC COMPOSITION SHOWREEL
INDIE POP PUNK (BEDS & BEATS)
American Punk was one of the things that first inspired Owen to pick up a guitar so this collection was very much in his comfort zone. Legitimacy was important here so the entire album was recorded using real guitar amplifiers and features the exceptional Charlie Kenny on drums.
The tracks have proved popular with the track ‘Cheeky Lads’ being used by the BBC ’Top Gear’ programme.

REFLECTIONS (BEDS & BEATS)
Owen recently completed this commissioned album of intimate and refined music for piano and string quartet. The collection was Recorded at Oakwood Studios in Afan Forest Park, South Wales. Oakwood is a one hundred year old church steeped in ambience and character with a sound to match. No compromises were made in capturing the detail of the space and the live performances.

Owen is my “go to guy” for guitar sessions, mainly because he’s talented, quick and efficient, knowledgeable beyond belief, and for all my projects (which can range from Classical to Hardcore dance) he has just picked up his guitar and proved his versatility again and again. He has a nice selection of guitars which suit all sorts of sounds and I’m always impressed with his speedy turnaround.Dave Bethell
