Owen Steel was raised between a farmhouse in rural Prince Edward Island and a seaside hostel in small-town New Brunswick. Since 2008 Owen has toured from coast to coast, from Texas (SXSW) to Tennessee (Folk Alliance) to Sweden, France and points in between. From folk festivals to freak festivals; basement bars to revered soft seat theatres; by thumb, boat, van and train; In the process making his way under the radar and into the ears of a small yet mighty group of supporters.
An invitation to the Banff Centre’s inaugural Songwriter Residency in 2017 saw Steel work alongside engineer/producer, Howard Bilerman (Leonard Cohen, Arcade Fire). Most recently, Owen has collaborated and recorded with classical harpist Sarah Pagé (The Barr Bros, Lhasa de Sala) and Fredericton based weirdo art-punks, Motherhood. Owen is a past recipient of Winnipeg Folk Festival’s Young Performer Award and Harvest Jazz and Blues Best Original Song Award.
