Owen Riegling has been picking away at the guitar since he was eleven years old. Growing up on a 100-acre farm outside of Mildmay, Ontario, Owen’s childhood consisted of playing hockey and riding dirt bikes. It wasn’t until his late teenage years he started to visualize life as a musician. Country music didn’t really cross his radar until it hit the mainstream. If you ask, he remembers listening to rock music, and popping the Best of Steve Miller Band into his walkman. It was Eric Church and Tyler Childers that captured Owen’s attention. It was from artists like these that he learned he could bring together the elements of both rock and outlaw country that he loved, and give them a modern spin that would resonate with listeners today.
