“Lethbridge Owen comprising of singer Kelly Louise Lethbridge and guitarist/singer Jimmy Owen. Leaning more towards the West Coast type Rock/Pop sound, Jimmy’s incredible guitar playing was matched by Kelly’s strong vocals. They covered their two singles “Taking Over Me” and “Leaving Home” along with “Hope”, “The Great Healer”, “If Only” and the Lindsey Buckingham inspired “Nothing Sacred”. Kelly and Jimmy harmonise perfectly together, but it is Jimmy’s guitar playing that is the stand out feature of the duo. Ranging from a classical guitar style on some songs, to a full band sound, (by use of a loop pedal), on other songs. Certainly a group to watch out for.” Their singles 'Two Steps Forward’ and ‘Leaving Home’ are now available world wide and the newest track ‘Re-Inspire’ is due to be released on the 28th of April.
