Facebook: Owen Steel
Owen Steel was raised between a farmhouse in rural Prince Edward Island and a rambling, seaside hostel in small town New Brunswick – the latter hosting an array of touring musicians who instilled within him an interest in song craft. He has written and released an assortment of idiosyncratic garage / folk material that runs the gamut from simple and coy, to ugly and bizarre.
Since 2008, he has toured sporadically in support of numerous independent releases (as well as with bands The Belle Comedians, Mike Trask & The Precious Memories, and Dana Sipos) from Newfoundland to the Yukon, Texas to Sweden, and points in between. From folk festivals to freak festivals; basement bars to revered soft seat theatres; by thumb, boat, band van and train; In the process making his way under the radar and into the ears of a small but mighty group of listeners.
DCMF would like to thank partners Klondike Institute of Art & Culture (KIAC), Parks Canada and North Klondyke Highway Music Society.
