Biography

Eugene aka Brandon Owens moved from Los Angeles to New York at the age of 18. He spent the better part of the past four years touring and recording as a bassist with the elite of the jazz and pop world, such as Lauryn Hill and Terence Blanchard. In Summer 2004 he picked up an acoustic guitar, learned to use a four-track recorder and started to write his own songs.

After years of playing music but never writing his own material, Eugenes songs just started pouring out, with over 40 songs captured on four-track in only a few months time. Though the recording process was painstakingly primitive, what has come out on these recordings is refreshingly honest songs that have a tremendous range, a warm immediacy and a real pop sensibility that is very different from the other sounds currently coming out of New York.

In Fall 2004, eugene began playing local venues, in both LA and NYC, to audiences of friends. An undeniable presence, his statement in show and song is both relevant and timelessly cool.

Eugene recently signed with New Line Records and will be releasing his debut LP this fall.

Lyrics

Still Around

Written By: Eugene aka Brandon Owens

(Verse 1A)
no i didnt know she was still around
and i could of sworn that i stood my ground
cause ive neever been the man for 2
baby you know it's only you
...oh ya
(Verse 1B)
know i didnt know that she was there
and i never said that love was fair
you mean more to me than words can say
darlin this situations got me feelin strange

(Pre Chorus)
you better believe me
cause you're the one

(Chorus)
im sayin
dont think my love will ever choose
thats why you're still around
you are the rose thats in my ground love was lost then found
have i become the leafless tree
that you refuse to see
oh im still around
ya im still around
still around
...feels good

(Verse 2A)
no i dont know where things went wrong
and i never knew i could sing this song
casue i didnt know that you were mad darlin this situations got me feelin sad
(Verse 2B)
i was singin songs for you to hear
when i didnt know that she was there
cause ive never been the man for 2 baby you know its only you

(Pre Chorus)
you better believe me
cause you're the one

(Chorus)
im sayin
dont think my love will ever choose
thats why you're still around
you are the rose thats in my ground love was lost then found
have i become the leafless tree
that you refuse to see
oh im still around
ya im still around
still around

...around ...around ...around
...around... oh oh

oh im still around
ya im still around
still around

(Outro Verse)
no ive never been the man for 2
baby you know its only you

River

Written By: Eugene aka Brandon Owens

(Verse 1)
calm cool and collected
the river gives rise
to the sea it turns
i still heard your cries
...but i remain
calm cool and collected
calm cool and collected
...now let me ask you

(Chorus)
who are you anyway
you aint got a word say
ill see you another day
do what the river say

(Verse 2)
i say
come away come away now
and lose your pride
im tellin you
turn it dow turn it down now
the river has died
...but i remain
calm cool and collected
calm cool and collected
...now let me ask you

(Chorus)
who are you anyway
you aint got a word to say
ill see you another day
do what the river say

(Outro)
...but i remain
calm cool and collected
calm cool and collected
calm cool and collected
...i was
calm cool and collected
ya
