Muziek 19 november 2020 20:30 Podium door Prinsenkwartier

Born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida. He received his first set of drums at 5 years of age. His formal education in the academics of music started at about the age of 10 with piano lessons. At the age of 12 was the start of his formal studies on drums in the Duval County public school system.
Owen continued with this until finishing high school in 1989 at Douglas Anderson School of the Arts in Jacksonville. While combining playing gigs with an assortment of musicians and musical situations, he attended Jacksonville University as a Music Performance major. Owen moved to New York in April of 1997 as a result of an extended collaboration as percussionist with the Urban Bush Women (UBW) Dance Company. This experience launched his career further into an international exposure with a tour in Switzerland in addition to other performances in the US. Settled in his Brooklyn residence Owen’s schedule was occupied with periodic rehearsals with UBW, accompanist for dance classes at Lehman College in the Bronx and ‘practice sessions’ with great musicians.
Having the evenings free to explore what was happening on the music scene gavehim the opportunity to do gigs all over NYC including a steady gig on Monday and Tuesday nights at the “Village Lantern”, a popular hang in the west village. Meeting and playing with the musicians who would pass by and sit in resulted in more valuable playing experience. Among these musicians are some of the people who Owen credits as his most influential collaborators; Rob Dixon, Abram Wilson, Ronald Westray, Gregory Tardy, Benny Green, Vanessa Rubin, Wycliffe Gordon and RaviColtrane.
In September of 2001, Owen began teaching in the Netherlands at the Prins Claus Conservatorium in Groningen. As a professor in the Jazz Drum department, Owen designed the 4 year curriculum for the Bachelor degree in Jazz drums. In addition, he’s also given workshops and master classes internationally in Turkey, Azerbaijan, Indonesia, South Korea, Colombia, Greece, Spain, Portugal, Curacao, Italy, Slovenia and the Netherlands.
While residing in the Netherlands, Owen balanced his busy teaching schedule at PCC with a busy tour and recording schedule with artist such as; Timucin Sahin, Ramon Valle, Michael Moore, Ernst Reijseger, Ernst Glerum and Juraji Stanik. Also including US based artist in affiliation with the Conservatorium; Craig Handy, Don Braden, Seamus Blake, David Berkman, Conrad Herwig, Dena DeRose, Ralph Peterson, Brian Lynch and many others.
While residing in Bologna, Italy (2006 – 2007) he collaborated with some of the finest musicians on the scene including, Steve Grossman’s “Two Tenor” Quintet and the Piero Odorici Quintet In addition to some of his prior collaborators.
With a variety of musical influences which include; traditional and contemporary gospel, soul, rock, fusion, Caribbean, Brazilian, Cuban and hip- hop, Owen has developed a unique style. His many influences allow him to access just the right timbre, touch and attitude to compliment a vast array of musical situations. You can hear this for your self upon a listen to“Osiris”, from saxophonist Michael Moore or the much different displays of musical diversity on guitarist TimucinSahin’s “Window for My Breath .”

The line-up will be Timothy Banchet – Piano and Joris Teepe- Bass
