‘Made To Love You’ premiered with Shortlist who said, “Domestic violence is an issue that needs to be talked about more, with the shocking figures that 1 in 4 women, and 1 in 6 men will be affected by the issue in their lifetime. Therefore, this hard-hitting new video from up-and-coming Shrewsbury singer-songwriter Dan Owen is an important piece of work. The song, ‘Made To Love You’, was written from the personal experience of Dan supporting a friend suffering in an abusive relationship, with the lyrics touching on the conflict of emotions felt by one partner to another.”
‘Made To Love You’ is becoming a rapid success across the world and entered No.2 in the French Spotify Viral Chart, while No.4 in Belgium and also charted in the Netherlands, Hungary, Turkey and Indonesia respectively.
His captivating songwriting and relentless touring has seen Dan already develop a fervent fanbase, which has resulted in him selling out his upcoming headline show at London’s St.Pancras Old Church on September 7th.
The Shrewsbury vocal powerhouse has been turning heads ever since he first started playing live ten years ago, at the tender age of 13. He first rose to wider prominence after a video of him playing a stunning live cover of Bob Dylan’s ‘The Ballad Of Hollis Brown’ was uploaded by a random audience member to Reddit and became an overnight viral internet sensation.
Since then Dan’s own talents as a songwriter have blossomed and the result is a stunning selection of songs. His debut EP Bad For Me was released to high praise in 2015 and now ‘Made To Love You’ is the first taste of his upcoming Open Hands And Enemies EP.
Open Hands And Enemies sees Dan straddling swooning soul, throaty blues and carefully crafted pop sentiments, and is due for release on September 14th through LAB Records.
Dan has just completed a 30-date European tour in support of Birdy. The singer was such a huge fan of Dan that she finished every night of her tour inviting him onstage to duet on her 2015 hit ‘Let It All Go’. He’s also been invited back to head out on the road with her again for more shows in the autumn.
