A true adherent to the DIY ethos, Owen Duff blends influences from chamber pop, folk, electronica, film scores and jazz, with lyrics inspired by books, films, TV, philosophy, politics and personal experience.
As well as playing or programming nearly all of the instruments on his songs, Owen also creates the visuals that accompany them, from artwork to music videos.
He has recorded five EPs and five albums, one of which, rather than releasing, he he hid in secret locations around the world for people to find at random.
Owen scored the Queerty award-nominated web series Kissing Walls in 2019 and released his most ambitious album, the narrative concept album 'bed', in 2022.
He has performed in iconic UK venues including Bush Hall, the Royal Vauxhall Tavern and Wigmore Hall, as well as supporting acts such as the Hidden Cameras, Scott Matthew and The Unbending Trees.
Owen's songs have been played on BBC Radio 6 music, BBC Radio London and are a regular fixture on Amazing Radio playlists. His work has been featured in The Independent, Amelia's Magazine, Creative Review, Atwood Magazine, Earmilk, and Music OMH.
In addition to his work as a singer-songwriter and media composer, Owen makes experimental music, and in 2023 his piece broken metronome concrète was Highly Commended in the 'Composed with Sound' category at Sound of the Year Awards.
Owen holds a Master's degree in Music from Goldsmiths University.
