Brian Owen

The arrival of Brian Owen on the jazz scene was not accompanied by fanfare promising a new era. Rather, critics and audiences saw an artist who had worked diligently through his formal studies and made progress on his most important artistic assignment, finding a voice that resonated with him and with his listeners.

A trumpeter, composer and band leader, Owen was born on June 7th, 1982, in Everett, Washington. He took up the trumpet in his early teens and made rapid headway in music and academic work. Aided by the Running Start program, he managed to complete high school and community college simultaneously.
