Up and coming Irish songwriter Owen Rua releases his impressive new emotive single ‘Don’t Rely On Anybody But Yourself’ on 6th November.
A prolific songwriter and performer, Owen blends piano with rock and soul sounds, drawing influence from the likes of Hozier, Lewis Capaldi and Sam Smith, to create his unique, upbeat pop sound.
Growing up in a very musical household, and from a young age he knew he would embark on a journey to make his dreams come true. Fully immersing himself into music, this led Owen to Rome, Italy, where he studied music in
Saint Louis College. Along with this, he graduated with a 4-year degree from the Cork School of Music. Coming back to Ireland, Owen would regularly perform passionate acoustic performances around the country, making him a celebrity in his hometown of Tralee, Co. Kerry.
Storytelling is an important part of the creative process for Owen. ‘Don’t Rely On Anybody But Yourself’ is a breakup empowerment anthem. It’s a tale of overcoming heartbreak, finding independence and self love.
Owen released his debut single ‘Do You Ever Think of Me?’ on July 24th 2020. This single received great reviews and write ups from Hot Press Magazine, and had interviews and radio plays from Spin South West, Soho Radio London, Indie Star radio, Radio Kerry, The Sound Lab radio, Limerick 102FM, Near FM, Mid West Radio, KCLR96FM as well as being playlisted on RTE 2xm and appearing on GoldenPlec.
