ABOUT THE ALBUMOn his new album, SOUL OF CASH, Owens offers up his own soulful take on timeless classics recorded by legendary Johnny Cash, including "Ring of Fire," "Folsom Prison Blues," "Walk The Line," Man In Black," and "Sunday Morning Coming Down." Each song is configured respectfully by Owens and his band, The Deacons of Soul (Alvin Quinn, Shaun Robinson, Rob Woodie), to preserve the genius of the original versions while demonstrating their universal meaning and adaptability.
"The way I look at this project is not so much as a tribute, but more of an Americana soul project that features the music of Johnny Cash," says Owens, who has been lauded by Rolling Stone as a “vibrant soul singer who bridges a racial and generational divide." "One of the things I've come to know is that the soul of Johnny Cash is very similar to the soul of me."_______________________________________THE DEACONS OF SOULShaun Robinson, electric guitarAlvin Quinn, bassRob Woodie, drumsTHE CASH KIDSDaru Jones, drumsMarcus Machado, electric guitarVictor Broden, bassTony Esterly, pedal steelZander Wyatt, acoustic guitarWillie Eames, electric guitarLee Carrol, organ and rhodesShedrick Mitchell, organ and rhodesSPECIAL GUESTSRobert RandolphRissi PalmerDylan McDonaldAustin Grimm-SmithThe VaughansHORNSJason SwaglerBrady LewisKwanae JohnsonKyle AllenAaron Chandler_______________________________________
