There’s far more to Undersong than the time Salt House spent recording on the tiny Hebridean island of Berensay …There’s clearly been a period of careful nurturing and refining, both in the studio and before live audiences. The result is a highly accomplished album of wonderful music that singles Salt House out as a trio of exceptional talent.” FOLK RADIO

  • dean owensDean Owens into the sea
    Velvet-voiced Dean Owens is one of Scotland's most acclaimed and established singer songwriters, with fans including Bob Harris, Irvine Welsh and Russell Brand. Dean's music has been described as Celtic Americana with a rocky pop edge, and draws as much from his Scottish roots, especially his home town of Leith (referenced and loved by the Proclaimers) as from his US heroes. The emotional honesty in his songs shines through as he sings about people and places, love and regrets with a gritty yet lyrical Scottish sensibility, delivered with a searingly soulful voice. Dean's solo career has seen him tour far and wide, including in Europe, USA and Australia. Dean is also highly regarded among other musicians and has played shows and toured with Steve Earle, Emmylou Harris, Joan As Policewoman, Eddi Reader, John Hiatt and Nanci Griffith. In his early career Dean was the front-man of the much loved band The Felsons. Since launching his solo career he has produced five albums, including the highly regarded Whisky Hearts (also recorded in Nashville), and Cash Back (Songs I Learned From Johnny) album, inspired by one of his lifelong idols, Johnny Cash.   ARTIST:                       Dean Owens                        TITLE:                          Into the Sea (Deluxe Edition) CATALOGUE No:       DRMFR018X   "One of Scotland’s best…" Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2
