Dean Owens is back with new single Julie’s Moon – and it’s another stunner from this incredibly talented Leither, who is widely regarded as one of Scotland’s best songwriters.
Dean, who was formerly lead singer of Americana outfit The Felsons and counts Irvine Welsh and Russell Brand among his fans, has released Julie’s Moon (via iTunes, download sites) to coincide with Marie Curie’s Great Daffodil Appeal.
In September 2015, Dean’s beloved big sister Julie finally lost her battle with cancer. She was 50. Julie was a huge supporter of her brother and his music, always encouraging him, always at his gigs.
Written very shortly after her death, Julie’s Moon, recorded with The Whisky Hearts, is one of Dean’s most personal songs – although it was a subject he would have preferred to avoid.
“This is a song I wouldn’t have chosen to write due to the circumstances, but when it came to me I knew I had to just go with it,” says Dean.
“My sister was a big fan of my music so it seems only appropriate that she now has her own song, and I’m delighted if it can do some good in raising awareness and funds for the work of the Marie Curie charity.“
Julie’s Moon is AAA’s Hottest Record of the Week. You can listen to it below, but we also urge you to download the track from iTunes, with all proceeds from sales of the single being donated to the Marie Curie charity.
