Singer/songwriter Jason Owen is a charismatic country boy whose rich vocals and high energy, heartfelt performances have made him a crowd favourite. From originals such as Proud to faithful renditions of John Denver classics, Jason is a true talent.
Bursting onto the Australian Music Scene in 2012 as runner up of X Factor, Jason launched his debut album Life Is A Highway which debuted at #1 on the ARIA Country Chart and #5 on the Australian National ARIA Chart. Jason has since released three more albums; Friday Night containing his first original hit Damn Right, Proud, his first all-originals album celebrating his First Nations background and featuring Australia’s most iconic female Indigenous entertainer Christine Anu on the title track, and Jason Owen Sings John Denver: 20th Anniversary tribute album, a labour of love dedicated to his Pop.
Absolutely captivating in front of a live audience, Jason has entertained audiences around the country for album tours and at popular events including the Tamworth Country Music Festival, CMC Rocks the Hunter, the ACE Awards and the Sony Foundation’s Wharf4Ward event raising funds for youth cancer care. In 2013 he and country music star Amber Lawrence took their Islands In The Stream tour on the road to packed venues around Australia.
With a Golden Guitar and three Country Music Channel (CMC) Award nominations to his name in categories including New Oz Artist of the Year and Male Artist of the Year, Jason has made his mark on Australian music. His popularity is fuelled by his ability to connect with his audience through songs that capture our shared experiences.
Jason supports and has raised funds for numerous worthy causes close to his heart including Fight Stroke, the Special Olympics and RSL Defence Care. In 2017, he donated a portion of profits from his album Proud to the Sir Ivan Bushfire Appeal and in 2018 he wrote and recorded These Are The Times, with all funds raised going to drought relief.
In 2019 Jason is returning to the stage with a new show, The Power of Love. Joined by some of Australia’s finest musicians, Jason will perform some of the worlds greatest love songs in a must-see, uplifting show.
