''The charts keep climbing for Canadian Country Artist ''Owen Barney,'' releasing one hit after the next this year. His brand new single ''Pour Me'' is killing it, the follow-up single after releasing ''Thank Her For That'' that smashed the charts.''
''Owen is on fire...and this is one artist you need to hear and the one to watch,'' says Cyr. ''Owen has big dreams for his career in country music and he has the industry's attention. The fans really connect and resonate with Owen's music and he is off to one hell of a start. With his first Top 20, Thank Her For That, his new single Pour Me, and the toe-tap-inducing Make Your Night, (plus a live-off-the-floor recording of Pour Me) Owen Barney has shown incredible growth as an artist, maturity as a writer, and reinforced exactly why he is one to watch. We are all watching. I love to see a young artist with sheer raw talent like Owen. He has what it takes to take him all the way in country music,'' says Kim Cyr, NOW and THEN Magazine.
''I am really excited for Owen and I can't wait to see what he has in store for us. I look forward to watching him grow and become the artist he dreams of becoming. There is no doubt in my mind he will do exactly that. It is a real gift to witness and watch his long musical career ahead of him.''
Born and raised in Toronto, country artist Owen Barney has been strumming the guitar since he was just 7 years old, influenced by country heavy-hitters Eric Church, Steve Earle, and Jason Aldean. He has played shows around Toronto from the age of 14 and has spent the last few years honing his skills as a performer. “Barney’s maturity and natural talent as a performer allow him to be a storyteller so young in his career,” says Front Porch Music, while Canadian Beats commends Owen’s ability to “fuse soulful songwriting and easy breezy vocals.”
2020 has been a landmark year for this rising star, with over 7.5 million global streams and a chart-topping summer smash “Thank Her For That”. The timing couldn’t be better for the release of his brand new EP No Road Too Long featuring his latest single “Pour Me," a lighthearted song that reflects on dealing with hard times. This release follows a big month for Owen; being named the Amazon Breakthrough Artist of the Month, hitting over 320K views on his most recent music video for "Thank Her For That", topping the Shazam charts, and a partnership with iconic Canadian brand Roots.
