Warm Vibes On An Icy Day – Josh Owen Band at Basement Discs

Last week’s scheduled in-store with Zulya was cancelled owing to the performer in question coming down with the flu, so it’s been two weeks since I last tasted live music.

Melbourne today is putting on a typical winter’s day, sort of not too cold if you’re out of the wind and in the sun, but nevertheless pretty chilly. A great excuse therefore to get down to
Basement Discs at lunchtime for some funky grooves.

Josh Owen Band fit the bill perfectly with a short demonstration of tunes from their latest CD The Long Way. The music encompasses soul, funk and reggae, sung with conviction by band leader Josh Owen in his strong soulful voice. His band, including himself is a trio, with Luke Hodgson on electric bass and Jason Heerah on percussion and harmony vocals.

An enjoyable and heart warming interlude on a cold day it was too.

Find out more, and listen to his music on
Josh’s web page or My Space.
