Sixteen year old Owen Mac resides in Coleraine, Northern Ireland, and began singing just 4 years ago. He is a natural born singer having had no professional lessons and truly demonstrates a God given talent! His musical influence comes primarily from being in a fairly musical family with a Dad who is always singing and a Mother who continually has music on in the house. Owen told me that the music was usually “the good old country singers such as Ray Price, Gene Watson and others”. Owen has two sisters Shauna 18, and Shannon 12, who are very supportive of Owen and also love Country and Country Gospel music. Owen was given an opportunity at 12 years of age to sing at an outside broadcast of Hugo Duncans (BBC Radio Ulster) and sang a Derek Ryan cover of “Gods Plan”. BBC Radio Ulster put it on their website and it went viral. This inspired Owen and proved to be a real confidence builder for him and an encouragement to keep going.
