unnamed - The Prohibition Sessions with Owen Paul +// Sarah Jones

Read Owen’s bio below:

“Owen Paul is the Scottish singer, producer and co-writer of the 1986 UK and European smash summer hit My Favourite Waste of Time.

He toured the UK and Europe as a member of Mike and the Mechanics and was the vocal arranger on their Rewired album as well as running a West End theatre in London’s Leicester Square and co-producing the winning UK entry for Eurovision 2001.

He has released the albums About Time, About Time II and the EP Acoustic 80’s, and in 2016 brought out two brand new versions of My Favourite Waste of Time (Parts One and Two) to celebrate its 30th Anniversary.  In 2018 his track Amazing (remixed by the Swedish DJ and dance producer Stonebridge) hit the Music Week top 40 club charts.

His new Americana album ‘Overblown Superstar’ is due out in 2020 and sees a return to his Scottish Celtic Folk singer/songwriter roots”.

Supporting Owen will be Sarah Jones.

Read Sarah’s bio below:

Sarah Jones is an 20 year old singer/songwriter/guitarist and pianist from Liverpool.

She has performed at festivals and events all over Liverpool and the North West. Her style is mainly pop usually performing a mix of original and cover songs.

Sarah first performed on stage at the age of five in a school musical, and this is when she realised that music is what she wanted do.

After a couple of years performing around Liverpool at festivals and shows, Sarah began learning to play the guitar at the age of 9.

In 2011, Sarah entered a local talent competition performing her original song, ‘Stay’ where she won her category. Shortly after this she began to teach herself piano and started producing her own demos.

Over the next couple of years, Sarah found herself performing at venues such as the Liverpool Empire, Liverpool Everyman and performed with her College at the Echo Arena! During the past couple of years Sarah performed at festivals such as Folk On The Dock, Threshold Festival, Gigfest, Chester Live, Solarsphere Astronomical and Music Festival and many more.

She has appeared on a number of radio shows including the ‘Billy Butler’ show on BBC Radio Merseyside and Radio City Talk for the ‘Sound of Merseyside’ Feature with Steve Hothersall and John Gibbons. Over the last year Sarah has supported acts such as ‘Blair Dunlop’ and ‘The South’ formally ‘The Beautiful South’. Sarah is currently studying music at University and is currently recording her debut E.P, hopefully to be released very soon!
