Judith Owen | Lost and Found
a radio bobo-k music cd review

Buy It



Judith Owen has a very Amos-like quality in her voice. There is a Tori Amos radio promo CD that has her covering Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit", The Rolling Stones "Angie" and Led Zep's "Thank You". Owens' new CD Lost and Found kicks off with a cover of "Smoke on the Water" accompanied by a piano, which is very reminiscent of those Amos covers.

The album features mostly original songs penned by Owens, who also plays piano on the CD - with obvious comparisons to other female singer/pianists like Tori Amos, Fiona Apple, and Norah Jones, but without the big label production values. Lost and Found doesn't showcase the lyrical depth of Amos, the stream of consciousness of Apple, or the soul of Jones, but it's pleasant. Owens' has a child-like innocent quality to her voice, which is interesting considering she is the daughter of an acclaimed British opera singer.

Most of the CD is really stripped down, featuring little more than Owens on piano and a double bass on many of the cuts. Much of her songwriting reminds me of Peter Allen ("Arthur's Theme" "I Honestly Love You"). I hear it especially in the cuts "Emily" and "Moonlight".

Cassandra Wilson, Keb Mo, Tom Scott, and Richard Thompson each make appearances on the CD which also features a cover of The Police's "Walking on the Moon", the classics "These Things (Remind Me of You)" and "Night and Day". Also featured on the CD is the track "Dreaming", which you may remember from the recent Laura Linney film PS.
