Soul’d Out Welcomes Ian Owens
October 24, 2012 Leave a comment
Soul’d Out Quartet announced the addition of Ian Owens as their bass vocalist yesterday. Owens is replacing Matt Fouch, who left recently to join Legacy Five. Owens comes to the group with an impressive resume, having sung with the Cumberland Quartet, the Imperials, and most recently Ernie Haase and Signature Sound.
I mentioned when Owens announced he was leaving EHSS that I always thought he fit better with the Imperials than he did EHSS. I expect that Owens will fit with Soul’d Out quite nicely. Quietly, this quartet has assembled quite a vocal lineup. With Dusty Barrett, Matt Rankin, Bryan Hutson, and now Ian Owens, these guys can really stand toe to toe with the top tier quartets in this industry. I’ve been a fan of the group for a while now, and they have a bright future ahead of them. You can find the press release with quotes from both the group and Owens here.
Congratulations to Ian and Soul’d Out!
