Brian Owens at Uncle Slayton's
“My father was a preacher and, like most soul singers, I grew up singing in church. That is the route of traditional soul,” Owens explains. “Growing up, I would watch my father sing and see the effect it had on people. When he delivered a song, it was pure and genuine, and that’s what touches people and changes people’s lives.” The Belleville, St. Louis native was also weaned on vinyl platters by the Temptations, Wilson Picket, classic R&B anthologies, and Nat “King” Cole. His debut Moods And Messages is vibrantly vintage. Aesthetically it follows the groove gospel of classic 1960s and 1970s soul but it has a very in the now emotionality.
