** I can't thank all you Chicago people enough for coming out to the CD release, and to those outside of Chicago for all the support spreading the word about the album! Purchase the new album HERE!**
Hello everyone! My name is Owen Stevenson, and I'm a singer songwriter based out of Chicago, Illinois. I've been fortunate enough to carve out a career in the music world, and this is where I like to showcase my original music.
I've had the pleasure of performing in such groups as Straight No Chaser, The Singing Hoosiers, and Children's Chorus of Washington among others. I still keep up with the a cappella world by directing a group in Chicago called Vocal CHAOS. I also get to shape the musical minds of my students up at Rock House Glenview 4 days a week, where I teach guitar, bass, piano, voice, and ukulele. I'll keep posting updates below here as new things emerge - but in the mean time, enjoy the music!
We are DONE in the studio! Keep an ear out for a big release party in Chicago soon, and coming to a city near you after that! Please make sure you visit the facebook page for more updates in real-time!
I have been hard at work in the recording studio, and can't wait to share some new music with you VERY soon.
Join me, and my friends from Nonpronto at @northbar in Wicker park for a LIVE preview of some of the new music! check out the facebook event for more info!
In the meantime, here is a throwback to our fun live video shoot in LA a while back!
Very Excited to announce I'm back at it full go with my wrist! I'm playing 3-4 nights a week right now around Chicago, so if you're in the area, please swing by a gig and say hello, and if you're in a city that ISN'T Chicago, but would like to hear me play, lets talk, and find a venue that can host me, and/or the Owen Stevenson Trio!
On to the next phase of recovery! I am now strengthening my wrist and will begin playing guitar in a matter of a few weeks! I'm still performing every friday and saturday at Mother's Too in Chicago's Gold Coast, and would LOVE to see you all out there if you're in the City!
Recovering from knee and wrist surgery, but prepping for a big year. Hit up the studio a few days before wrist surgery, so I'll be getting some new tunes out to you all soon! In the mean time - be sure to follow me on Instagram and Twitter @owencstevenson and on Facebook.com/owenstevensonmusic !!
It's officially been spring for a few days (even though it snowed yesterday in Chicago…) and I'm ready to have some fun as the weather gets warmer! Don't forget about live music at Mothers Too Thursday, Friday, Saturday featuring myself, Scott Porter, and Robbie Gold. Let's kick off spring the right way this Thursday AND Friday! I'll be playing BOTH nights at Mothers Too!!
ALMOST THROUGH WINTER! It's been a brutal winter, especially because I've been spoiled and in the caribbean sun for the past 5 winters! But we are almost through, and ready for warm weather, sunshine, vacations, and some fun! Be sure to come out and support the live music in Chicago's Gold Coast, at Mothers Too, every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday - with a rotating line-up of Scott Porter, Robbie Gold, and Myself! Hang in there for a few more weeks, and then let's hit the Chicago Beaches!
HAPPY NEW YEAR! Don't forget to stop by Mothers Too on Division St. every friday in 2014, 7-11PM to catch me performing SOLO!

Thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected by hurricane Sandy. It will be a slow process, but if I know my friends up in the Tri-State area like I think I do, we'll all come out stronger than before. I'll be heading out on a cruise ship for the winter on the Celebrity Equinox 11/26-3/15, then will be back in the states for a fun summer of new recordings, and shows, so keep checking back for updates on when I'll be touring through a city near YOU!
Hello all! I've had a lot of fun in the studio with some great guys over the past few weeks, and have posted a preview on here of the unmastered tracks!! Right now on the Audio page, you can listen to all 4 new tracks - but only through this Monday! Pass this on and if you haven't already liked the facebook page, it's www.facebook.com/owenstevensonmusic
We will Also be performing at the RENAISSANCE HOTEL on July 12th from 6-8PM!! Spread the word!
Very excited to be going into the recording studio starting on friday, and will be releasing the first tracks online around mid-june so keep your eyes and ears open! Will also be performing at Bar Novo at the Downtown Chicago Renaissance Hotel on 7/12/12 - Josh Murtha will be joining me on guitar and bass!
Hello everybody, just wanted to welcome you to the Official Owen Stevenson website. I've made the move out to Chicago, and am gearing up with rehearsals to record my new 4-song Demo the first week of June, as a prelude to a full album late 2012/early 2013. I'm very excited about starting work on what will eventually be a new album with some of my best friends and musicians from Indiana University, as well as those I've become friends and colleagues with along the way on Cruise Ships, and other gigs. I'm looking forward to being back to the Midwest for an amazing summer. Keep checking in for updates and shows!
