Tipped by BBC Radio 6 Music’s Tom Robinson & Joe.ie – Belfast indie artist Owen Denvir plays his first ever Black Box headline show with full band
Fresh from the release of his RTE Radio 1 playlisted singles “”Bad For You””, “”Jackhammer”” and “”Green Light””, Belfast’s indie singer-songwriter/producer Owen Denvir performs his first ever Black Box Green Room headline show with full band.
Owen’s DIY songwriting & production has totalled over 100,000 streams on Spotify and 2,000,000 views on videos across Facebook and Youtube, even drawing the attention of Coldplay on Twitter. Coupled with support slots for dodie, JC Stewart and Ryan McMullan as well as Irish TV appearances on BBC 1’s “”Nolan Live””, ITV’s “”UTV Life”” and TV3’s “”The 6 O’Clock Show”” and major Irish radio playlisting, his music has stretched far beyond its quiet beginnings of his bedroom studio.
With music that has been described by Hot Press magazine as “”honest, personal… complex and affecting”” and tipped by BBC Radio 6 Music’s Tom Robinson and Joe.ie, Owen’s sound has expanded from his solo sets into more intricate soundscapes exploring the piano, guitars, drums and cello of his new band. After being selected from over 500 applicants to perform at Dublin’s prestigious Hard Working Class Heroes Festival, Denvir’s music has reached new audiences all over Ireland.
