Whats On Logo button image THE BIO Whats On Logo button image

Whats On Logo button imageOWENELL: Owenell are a four-piece Indie rock band that formed early in 2004.Owenell image Owenell have been building a live following throughout Newcastle, the Central Coast and Sydney with their dynamic and explosive show.
Frontman Michael Peter pulls influences in his performance from singers in bands like Incubus, Rage Against the Machine and Live, while guitarist Matt Goodwin brings influences from bands like Tool and Cog. The Rhythm section, Jeff Doukakis (drums) and Mark Stockwell (Bass) liken their tight, funky sound to bands ranging from The Red Hot Chilli Peppers to Led Zeppelin, and everything in between.

The songwriting is well thought out and creative, the performance oozes enthusiasm and the live show is unpredictable. Owenell is a sincere, determined hard working unit that has an highly infectious energy about what they stand for both musically and lyrically.

With connections to industry heavy weights Sebastian Chase (MGM) and Garry Beers (INXS), Owenell are signed to Override Records.

Owenell are currently putting the final touches on their debut E.P. titled Fantasies and Nightmares that is due for release in February. The first single, ''Complicated'', will be accompanied by a film clip which was shot in October '04.

(Silverchair and INXS are currently the only other endorsing Australian artists) The band will be a part of a nation-wide advertising campaign for the new Tribute series of guitars and bass guitars; which will feature a photo of Owenell playing live.
Owenell have played a number of venues up and down the coast including; The Hopetoun, The Vic on the Park, The Cat n Fiddle, The Grand Hotel, The Empire Hotel Annandale, Bondi Hotel, The Cambridge, The Woodport inn, The Lucky Country Hotel, The Harp Hotel, The Green Square Hotel, The Beachcomber Hotel.

Whats On Logo button image REVIEW - OWENELL Whats On Logo button image
Whats On Logo button image OWENELL:
What's On staff would like to congratulate OWENELL for taking out the prize in Thursday night's Battle of the Bands at The Beachcomber, Toukley. A deserved win by all means. The power and the passion (thanks Peter) of this young band is mesmerising and exhilarating. They are tight, energetic and exceptionally talented.

The soulful, sincere, idealistic words penned by singer /songwriter, Michael Peter, were surprising in their wisdom and values from one having spent so little time on this planet. His performance of the songs add credence and passion to his words. He was well supported by the equally energetic Mark Stockwell on bass, Matt Goodwin on lead guitar and the binding drumming of Jeff Doukakis. They have the ability to come together as one unit once they start playing. Once they have your attention, you aint getting it back until they are done.

The boys have been making quite a name for themselves of late and that name can only get bigger. What's On wishes the band every success for the future. If they keep up at this rate, they wont need our wishes.

Special mention must go to 'Ask Bob' who were in no way outclassed, but of a completely different genre to the other contestants. The judges must have had a difficult task making their final verdict.

A different venue and who knows what would have been.....

Congratulations also to Pauline and Todd from PBJ for a well organised event and of course, the Beachcomber hotel for being the hosts.
