‘Made To Love You’ has clocked up over half a million streams on Spotify. It also flew high in charts on the platform, topping the Viral Chart in Belgium, entering No.2 in France and charting in the Netherlands, Hungary, Turkey and Indonesia. It’s also gained high profile support from the likes of Radio X, BBC Introducing, Shortlist and more.
The single which opens the EP is a hauntingly beautiful, heart-on-sleeve, break-up ballad from the husky-voiced 24-year old. Examining what keeps people together yet drives them apart, the song comes from Dan’s personal experience supporting a friend who was suffering in an abusive relationship.
Elsewhere on Open Hands and Enemies EP, ‘Witching Hour’ is a redemption anthem reflecting on life’s mistakes, while ‘Moonlight’ is a haunting love ballad that finds Dan at his most effortlessly smooth. Closing the EP is a home recording of ‘Closer’, showcasing the intimate songwriting abilities and soulful performance that is winning hearts across the world.
Dan recently stunned the audience at his sold out headline show, where his voice cascaded around the beautiful surrounds of St.Pancras Old Church.
He will be touring the UK with Birdy throughout autumn, which follows the recent 30-date European run he completed with the singer. Birdy is such a huge fan of Dan that she finished every night of her tour inviting him onstage to duet on her 2015 hit ‘Let It All Go’.
With ‘Made To Love You’ resonating throughout the world, the release of the Open Hands and Enemies EP will see Dan Owen make his mark as one of the most impressive new voices coming from the UK today.
