Laura Owens was born and raised in San Francisco, but was always drawn towards the country lifestyle. She admits to having an unusual growing-up for a city girl, spending most of her time on the back of the horse with her headphones on and listening to artists like George Strait and Brooks & Dunn. Although she always wanted to be a singer, she felt like she was too shy to pursue her dream. "I always wanted it so badly, but it wasn't until I started writing my own music as a teenager that I really came out of my shell. Now, that's my favorite way to express myself and I love singing in front of people." At 22, armed with strong, catchy songs and filled with the passion and drive for the industry, Owens is ready to emerge as country music's new 'it' girl.
While she strives to be the girl next door in "Everyday You", "Let Me Love You", "What Would Mama Do", and "Nothing to Prove", Owens takes a different stand in the tongue-in-cheek song "Most Girls", the sassy, rocking "My Turn", and the confident, upbeat "Buy You a Drink". "Once" is a fun reminder to enjoy the present moment and not dwell on the past. Listeners will be able to empathize and laugh with Owens about the initial feelings of wanting to be with someone to the point of losing yourself in the fast-paced "Bad", while they will enjoy the reflective, thoughtful look at a past relationship in "You Know".
Sweet as honey, yet brutally honest with a bit of an edge. What more could a country fan want?
