Eugene, aka Brandon Owens, is an artist originally from Los Angeles now living in New York. After releasing his first recordings, compiled into a 9 song disc dubbed the 4-track demos, he found himself back in LA at the request of Nic Harcourt of KCRW'S Morning Becomes Eclectic. During January of this year he was featured live on MBE and doing a few west coast shows in support of those recordings. One of which was an in store performance at Fingerprints music store in Long Beach. It was here that Eugene met Kenneth Negrete, owner of Time Release Records, a sort of boutique record label based in Eugene's hometown. What started as an invitation to come visit Ken's studio/art gallery quickly and organically turned into what would be the start of a creative means for Eugene's first official release. Immediately attracted by the label's old school approach to art, both in selection and execution, the chemistry between Ken and Eugene was undeniable. With only a few days left to get to work, Eugene would end up returning a few times over the following months to complete the six songs found on Circles. Eugene's music is hard to categorize. It is where vintage meets future and heart meets soul. The music is quality and seems to speak to you without need of genres or demographics. The songs on Circles are each uniquely there own and glue themselves to you in the best way possible. ***Eugene is slated to begin work on his debut LP for New Line Records/Scratchie this fall with producer James Iha of the Smashing Pumpkins***.
