About Owen Danoff
An up-and-coming Washington, D.C. area performer and songwriter, Owen has song in his blood. Born into a musical family (his father, Bill, wrote such hit songs as Country Roads and Afternoon Delight, the latter earning him two Grammy awards in 1976), he has grown up surrounded by accomplished musicians. At age 16 he wrote his first song, but it was not until he was 20 years old, and soon to be a senior at Berklee College of Music (Class of 2011), that he began performing. He has played many major DC area venues including Strathmore Music Hall, the Kennedy Center, the Black Cat, and the Birchmere. Owen's music has got some pop, some folk, and some country, but the end result is all his own.
