Owen Danoff’s First Post-‘Voice’ Single “Love On Your Side”: Premiere
Singer-songwriter Owen Danoff earned some high profile, prime time exposure earlier this year when he landed a spot on Adam Levine‘s team during Season 10 of The Voice. In his run on the show, which saw him make it into the Top 11, the D.C. native showed off his vocal skills by taking on songs both classic (“Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright”, “Fire And Rain”) and modern (“7 Years”, “Lego House”).
Today Idolator is premiering Owen’s first post-Voice single, “Love On Your Side.” It’s a Beatles-esque track that showcases both the 26-year-old singer’s folky side as well as his pop sensibilities.
“I wrote this song while living in NYC,” Owen explains to Idolator. “I love the city and the people in it so much, but in a place with so much going on it’s sometimes easy to feel interchangeable, which was a bit of my inspiration for the lyrics. ‘Love On Your Side’ was produced by Mike (vocals, guitar, keys, production) and Nick Squillante (vocals, production), with Ben Marino on drums and vocals. All are great friends of mine and really amazing musicians so we had a lot of fun putting this together.”
Danoff continues, “I’ve always considered myself to be first and foremost a songwriter, but being on The Voice made me much more comfortable as a vocalist as well, which made this song a lot of fun to write and sing. That said, the coolest part of this process was recording the harmonies, because we all just stood around a microphone and sang together. It was totally organic and I think it shows. I think it’s my favorite part of the record.”
Give “Love On Your Side” a listen above, before the single’s official release on July 8.
