Beccy Owen is a queer, neurodiverse artist. With a spell-binding stage presence and piano-based songs that are overflowing with lyrical intelligence, Beccy’s characterful music has won high acclaim over the years.
Described by the NME as ‘a delinquent Carole King’ and by Music Week as ‘a fallen, aggrieved dark angel, and a very, very special talent’, Beccy has released six solo albums and had also fronted numerous bands, including electro-pop 4-piece Joy Atlas and chamber-pop 9-piece Sharks Took The Rest.
Owen's music has been championed by BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, Tom Robinson (BBC 6Music), Steve Lamacq (BBC 6Music) and Jo Whiley (BBC Radio 2). She's played a variety of festivals, including Glastonbury, Latitude, Deershed and Underneath The Stars, and has worked with numerous world-class musicians, including Elvis Costello, Nitin Sawhney, Maximo Park, Boff Whalley, Kate Rusby, and members of Bellowhead (whom Beccy supported on their 2009 UK tour.)
Beccy has written songs and music for the World Transplant Games, World Sing Up Day; a variety of film projects, TV shows, video games and theatre, where she also performs and musically directs, most often with the national touring company Red Ladder Theatre.
In 2019 Beccy received funding from the PRS Foundation's ‘Women Make Music’ and released her sixth album, CHAOTICA, a creative response to living with bipolar disorder and complex PTSD, which was recorded and toured live with the all-female collective The Refuge.
