Award-winning singer / songwriter Natasha Owens has released her first holiday-themed single, "A Christmas Twist" from Radiate Music. The lighthearted, '50s retro throwback cover of Si Cranstoun's holiday hit goes for adds at radio outlets internationally and is available at iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify and more digital retailers and streaming outlets everywhere.
A change of pace thematically from her trio of acclaimed, full-length albums that were birthed through tragic circumstances, Owens says, "This song was easy on my heart and a joy to record. I hope this is how you hear it too and that it will be a blessing to you and your family this Christmas.
"Christmas at the Owens' household is a lot of fun; it's my favorite time of the year," continues Owens, who together with her husband have two sons. "We are continuously listening to Christmas music and when we heard this song, we all broke out into dancing."
Produced by GRAMMY-nominated, two-time Dove Award-winning "Producer of the Year," Ian Eskelin, Owens is taking the new song and impactful, fan favorites from her repertoire on the road. She joins legendary Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame inductee and Journey member Jonathan Cain along with Stars Go Dim for the "Don't Stop Believin' Family Christmas Tour." Dates for this holiday tour are to be announced.
Traveling from her home base in Dallas, TX, Owens has previously toured with some of Christian music's bestselling artists, including Michael W. Smith, Jeremy Camp, Matthew West, Audio Adrenaline, Danny Gokey, Plumb, John Waller, JJ Weeks, Jason Crabb, 7eventh Time Down and more.
About Natasha Owens:
Owens shares the heartache and pain she experienced in the aftermath of her father's sudden passing with her debut album, I Made it Through, followed by hopeful exhales of optimism with her sophomore release, We Will Rise, which sparked coverage by FOX News, XM Radio and CNN along with a Best Contemporary Album of the Year NewReleaseToday.com WE LOVE Christian Music Award. For her current album, Warrior, produced by Eskelin, Owens offers an "overcomer's record" after nearly dying following a diagnostic, arteriogram procedure that accidentally punctured an artery. The album has been heralded as a "triumphant...sonic landscape" (NewReleaseToday.com) and "a solid mixture of vertical praise and pop-flavored jams" (CCM Magazine), and reintroduces Owens lyrically, sonically and thematically.
