"The People We've Known" The Music of David Owens
"The singing bus driver", hails originally from Troy, New York and currently lives in Niskayuna. David's songs cover a wide variety of themes from social commentary to relationships to a stirring tribute to Hank Williams, Sr. His styles encompass the range from country to folk to rock with a bit of Sinatra thrown in to round things out. Bill Holszt of the Philadelphia Inquirer once described him as "a very gifted singer, whose voice has a timbre worthy of Tim Buckley and who also has the sort of storytelling gifts of Townes Van Zandt, a truly unusual and winning combination." His latest CD includes "Hank", his tribute to the country music legend as well as "The Poverty Line", a song whose description of the vanishing American middle class is like a Michael Moore documentary condensed down to four minutes with characters straight out of modern day Steinbeck novel. As a school bus driver, part-time carpenter, and performer, his songs are steeped in the gritty realities and hopes and dreams embodied in the working life.
