As Time Goes By

      Welcome to the site!  Kenny Owens is a singer songwriter who currently resides in Hendersonville, TN . Originally from the great state of New York, he traveled down south playing bass for a band that wanted to record in a Nashville studio. After the group parted ways, Owens decided to stay and make a go of it.                                                                                                                         About twelve years ago, Kenny started working at Mr Mark's Music which was close to the Rescue  Mission downtown. He recalls...The store was a small warehouse full of discarded musical gear, broken tape decks, all kinds of stuff. Rare finds like Taylor Swift's cassette demo tape! Definitely an interesting place to work with a cast of characters  masquerading as employees and I fit right in.  All these song ideas came into my head after a day's work. It was then that I decided to lay down the trusty Fender P and started writing songs again on a six string flat top.                                                                                                                                                                                                       Owens recorded his Tn, debut album "Walking In St James" in 2010 and fell in love with the process. Next came the album "Look Both Ways" in 2014, released a vinyl 45 "Trouble's Coming Round" and in 2018 another album saw the light of day. "Colored By The Blue" on Vinyl and a single "Gone Fishing" on CD. Which brings us into 2020.                                                             As a songwriter, KO always loved the tune"Counting Flowers On The Wall"so with guitar in hand he penned "So Many Thoughts Of You" the latest single out now in the digital world. There is a YouTube video as well. A new Vinyl EP is to be released in August of this year.                       The songs Kenny writes are in the Americana, Country Vein  but he's not afraid to stray into another direction. Loves the sound of a Hammond organ and the growl of a Tenor sax. A big fan of the Byrds , Gram Parsons, Bob Dylan, Rodney Crowell , Kim Richey,  Linda Ronstadt as well  as Merle Haggard and Johnny Cash. Too many over the years to mention. He sounds like himself while paying homage to the greats!  Well crafted songs full of truth,fiction, lyrics and melody. He loves touring, used books, vintage  clothing , old guitars and trains.  His favorite movie is "October Sky."
