Q.Tell us about who you are & What you do?
I'm Owen McGarry, I'm a solo musician from Belfast. I play a lot of different instruments, so when I'm writing, I write for more of a band sound as opposed to an acoustic sound. When I'm playing live I either play with a band or if thats not possible or its a more intimate show I will play acoustic arrangements of my songs. I've been playing percussion from a young age then progressed onto playing melodic instruments as a teenager. Then since I've been able to play guitar and sing, I've been busking on the streets of Belfast and a few other cities around the UK as well as writing as much as I can.
