Bones Owens was born in rural Missouri, raised on gospel and classic country music. Picking up guitar by the age of 10, he was taught bluegrass and folk before discovering rock and roll. He began writing songs at 13, fronting bands throughout high school and college, one of which landed him his first publishing deal with EMI in 2005. Over the course of the last decade, he has written songs with artists ranging from Yelawolf to Bon Jovi and has toured the world with his own bands, also serving as guitarist for Mikky Ekko and Yelawolf. (Owens co-wrote the Yelawolf track 'Daylight', featured in the trailer for Magnificent 7). Bones released his debut EP Hurt No One in the fall of 2014, boasting guest appearances by Butch Walker, Matt Thiessen (Relient K), Russ Pollard (Everest, Sebadoh) and Caleb Crosby (Tyler Bryant & the Shakedown). His Track ' Moonshine' landed a spot on the CMT show Gainesville. With the release of his follow-up EP Make Me No King in early 2017, Bones solidified his presence as a solo artist with a penchant for confessional lyrics intertwined with dark, dreamy landscapes.
