Owl in the Sun are a 6-piece who mix rich vocal harmonies with a range of acoustic and electric instruments to create a highly original style. Their melody driven songs blend shades of contemporary folk, americana and gypsy jazz in a warm sound which is all their own. The band has been making a splash in the West Country since the release of it's debut album ‘Outside the City Way of Things'.

“A band to look out for at the summer festivals” MAVERICK MAGAZINE
“Song-orientated, lots of acoustic instruments, emotions and energies from outside the city way of things. The class of the writing, the energy and the not-bowing-the-knee to the most obvious influences really do mark these guys out as something above the average.” BATH FRINGE FESTIVAL
“Wonderful accessible songs enhanced by a truly warm stage presence. One of those great bands that subconsciously have you smiling and tapping your feet as soon as they play. The audience reaction was fantastic and I would recommend everything about them.”
