Schönes Thema & David Owens “Girl On The Balcony”



Schönes Thema & David Owens "Girl On The Balcony"
David grew up in the west of Ireland. A small town called Galway. Early on, with 5 years, he discovered his passion for music and piano began to play. At Christmas 2004 he got his first guitar, an old Epiphone, paid. A few years later he began to write his first songs, inspired by the folk singers Crosby, Stills and Nash, Ocean Colour Scene as well as of Bon Iver.

In summer 2012 he finally began regularly in pubs his hometown occur. After his studies in mathematics, graduating with honors, he worked until 2013 as a software engineer in a multinational company. He decided his calling to hang up and to pull a camper through Europe. He also made his first experiences as a street musician, as a “busker”. These were at first very spectacular. But he quickly realized that he could earn with his music enough money to pay for his vagabond life.

This was a decisive turning point in his life. He never looked back and played in the next few years in many European countries, always on the street, in parks, under bridges. Gradually, he gained a loyal fan base in Ireland, England, Germany, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Spain around.

But if you ask him what his favorite place is where he plays his “busking spot”, the answer is clear: The Mauerpark in Berlin. Davids style is often described as “Acoustic Indie”. But it differs greatly from other singer / songwriters. It varies and playing with different “picking” techniques slow songs, dominated by a soft voice, usually in a high Falcetto. Superseded turn of rapid folk songs which stir his audience with a strange feeling of happiness to tears.

His successful path as a musician, he writes less a natural talent, but rather hard, daily work. Work itself, his musical abilities, and particularly on the distinctive characteristics of his voice, his singing style. The point is to develop his own handwriting and perfect in all areas.

Street music is hard work. Every day, it is important to inspire his audience. The direct contact with the audience demands a passion and an absolute focus on music. Lyrics occur on the road, are stimulated and influenced by experienced on the road and the reaction of the audience.

The special feature of the street music is the direct connection between art and reception, the direct feedback of the audience to the artist. Unbelievable when partially several hundred listeners crowded together, see and listen to the music. This directness, this honesty makes the difference. Since 2015 David are also many concerts in clubs and is hired by major brands such as VW etc.

David now lives in Berlin and Dublin, still all day on the road. One can show his “intimate” call, the beat is always higher at the end of the heart of his audience than before.
