A Dream Come True
Shane Owens is about to realise his lifelong dream. In 2015 this young and affable 18 year old will hit the road and launch his new live dance show which promises to be the most exciting event on the country scene this year.
Born in Reading just outside London to Irish parents (both Mum and Dad are from Cavan) Shane from the age of three fell in love with Irish country music, at every opportunity he would raid his dads record collection and listen for endless hours to Mick Flavin, Mike Denver, and some legends from the USA including Waylon Jennings, George Jones and Willie Nelson. By the age of five, he was performing the country classic “Country Roads” on stage at his local Irish club, and there and then he was bitten by the bug and he has never looked back.
Before signing to J & C promotions, Shane continued to perform on the Irish club scene with his Dad and his apprenticeship has served him well as he prepares to bring his style of country and dance music to Irelands leading venues.
Ireland has always been a home away from home for Shane, all school holidays were spent in Cavan with his parents and his new career will see him take up residence in the Breffni County. In November 2014, J & C promotions, which is the leading management company on the Irish country dance circuit launched a campaign to find Ireland’s next country superstar, over 500 people responded to the call and after countless auditions, voice and screen tests, Shane came out on top. J & C promotions managing director and well known broadcaster Joe Finnegan has already stated his belief that “Shane Owens has what it takes to be a huge international star, we are delighted to have him with us and already we see great potential in this talented young man”.
Shane Owens is Ireland’s newest country sensation, The Shane Owens live show is not to be missed.
