Recent Winner of the 2008 - 15th Annual, Telluride Blues Festival's Solo Acoustic Blues Competition. Also winner of the Founder's Folk & Bluegrass Festival Songwriters Showcase 2006. Acoustic blues & folk with a big dose of soul & gospel thrown in for good measure. Van Morrison meets Muddy Waters meets Keb Mo' meets James Taylor. With 3 well received Independently released CD's behind him, award-winning songwriter neil bradley owen, or “blue” as many of his close friends call him, seems to be on his way. A genuine, heartfelt, bluesy, singer/songwriter, Neil’s songs prove to be instantly memorable, with melodies and lyrics that speak to the heart......just picture if you will, a bunch of folks with their guitars, mandolins, upright bass, harmonica, and anything else anyone can shake or beat, sitting around on an old, wooden, rustic front porch, playing and singing songs about what makes life worth living. Music that just makes you feel good. Bluesy, acoustic soul/folk with that ever present earthy undertone, of those warm acoustic instruments... and oh that voice....that's Neil Bradley Owen music. (Review of Neil’s album ”Front Porch Prose”) Take a minute and give a listen to neil's latest 2007 release- "Peace & Harmony"
