In advance of his upcoming new album, Soul of Ferguson, musician Brian Owens debuted his new single, “For You,” featuring five-time Grammy Award winner, Michael McDonald on January 6. The single was written and produced by Owens, and is a joint venture between Ada Cole Records and The Purpose Music Group. The single is distributed via iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play, Pandora, and all other digital music retail outlets.
“For You” is a song about the celebration of love, both human and spiritual. The single is an uplifting message of hope and positivity amongst the sad and tough times we all face in this world. The song piqued McDonald’s interest after McDonald heard the Owens playing the song and inquired about it. After Owens mentioned that it was his original song, McDonald then mentioned his admiration for the song. As the saying goes, the rest is music history.
Owens gained attention after being featured on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, from his time as lead singer with the National Guard band Sidewinder. This appearance on Ellen led to other national appearances. Being a Ferguson, Missouri native, Owens dedicates much of his time to local charities in and around the St. Louis area.
Owens’ winter tour begins Jan. 12 in West Palm Beach, Florida and ends on March 31 in Bangor, Maine. Tickets can be purchased via Owens’ website here.
