24 year-old singer-songwriter Dan Owen has just completed a 30-date European tour supporting Birdy, and will head out with her again in the autumn following the release of his new EP. His new single, and our Track of the Week, ‘Made to Love You’ will feature on his Open Hands and Enemies EP, out on October 26th. An emotional folk-induced affair, it examines what keeps people together, yet drives them apart. Inspired by a personal experience supporting a friend who was suffering in an abusive relationship, ‘Made to Love You’ is poignant and powerful. Owen’s husky voice and the affecting piano manage to hammer the emotion home in what is a promising first glimpse of the EP.
