ALMOST OWEN, “One Lucky Man”
In early May, I introduced you to Boston’s Almost Owen through a delightful acoustic indie bedroom production. He’s followed that up with a full blown alt.rock effort called “One Lucky Man”. He’s got a great voice and like with many classic rockers, he can sing a lot of powerful, meaningful lyrics and draw the audience into his story without worrying that he’s actually singing too much. The song has a straight-forward arrangement with a steady rhythm that steers it quickly through three and a half minutes without it seeming even as such. Definitely keep your ears open for Almost Owen – he’s a sharp songwriter who knows what his listeners want to hear, and delivers a great message with “One Lucky Man” in the process.
