Biography

My name is Joshua Owens. That's my birth name straight from the womb, no flashy promotional tactics used here. There is no goal, audience, or fan-base I am trying to reach, achieve, or influence. I play music that "I" enjoy and music that means something to "me". But since we are all the same I guess that translates into playing music that "you" will hopefully enjoy and get something out of as well. Whether it's sadness, joy, anger, or boredom; I hope you at least receive some sort of emotional return from listening to me speak... in song form. Thanks so much.

Lyrics

Wilderness Wanderer

Written By: Joshua Owens

It started with a plan / to fix what I had done
To find myself again / when I saw what I’d become
When I left my home / to live down underneath
The ground became my bed / and from that I chose to sleep

As the animals head out / I follow from behind
I throw away my things / and I start to lose my mind
So caught up by the sound / and searching for your help
Too distracted by the lack of words / to listen for myself

Lost out in the rain / washed back by the sea
I’ll meet you on that mountain / where you promised you would be

Living in the cold / Fairbanks back in May
I’m a wilderness wanderer / and I will find my way

I was warmed by the sun / rocked by the winds
Sheltered by the trees / and brought back to life again
