Ollee Owens – Through the Darkest Night

“Awesome ownership of your voice, so bright, sonorous and rich! The melody and atmosphere americana completely captures all your attention and attracts to itself as if a powerful magnet! No magic and magic, before you is pure, real, lively music!” (Automatically Translated with Google Translate)

“Потрясающее владение своим голосом, такой яркий, звонкий и насыщенный! Мелодия и атмосфера Americana полностью захватывает всё ваше внимание и приковывает к себе словно мощным магнитом! Никакой магии и волшебства, перед вами чистая, настоящая, живая музыка!”


Ollee Owens is a musical force of nature who combines burning intensity with elegant grace and skilled composure wrapped in an electrifying blues rock veneer. The result is an unforgettable, emotionally charged musical experience that moves both body and soul. Having released “Edge of Goodbye” and “Raging Fire” earlier this year, Owens has set her intentions as a talented artist who deals in authenticity.

Latest single, “Through the Darkest Night,” is an evocative track that touches on the endurance of a powerful connection – an intense love that builds throughout intense musical moments and smooth, soulful vocals. For the accompanying music video, Owens and her team went to Vegas, shooting the desert and cityscapes in contrast with each other to capture the sonic dynamics visually.

Owens’ new album, Cannot Be Unheard, explores the many facets of how our perceived “truths” can deceive us and hold us back and how important it is to grow towards becoming the greatest version of ourselves, always staying connected to the people who bring out the best in us. To Owens, this collection of songs are a declaration of sorts that Cannot Be Unheard. Her desire is that listeners come away from these songs feeling free to be themselves in a fresh new way, shining their light a little more brightly for their world to see – and so the ripple effect continues on towards a better tomorrow for all.
