Heavy Songwriting

By Owen Davies

Owen Davies, a songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist based out of Montague, PEI, released his fourth full-length album, Heavy Songwriting, on all streaming platforms in digital format in May.

The intimate, psych-folk leaning collection explores themes of love, loss, and moving to the country. Davies worked with long-time collaborator, producer Jeff D. Elliott, to expand on his home recorded demos. The album also features an orchestral arrangement from Nick “Walker” Grimshaw on the album opener, “Notes From An Elevator,” as well as a duet with PEI’s own Gina Dunn on standout track “Waves Of Mercy.” 

Davies explains that the inspiration for the record was to “write songs for songwriters—where the lyrics, melody, and chord progressions were strong enough to stand alone.”
