Dean Owens releases the second part of his EP set, ‘The Desert Trilogy’.

It follows up, naturally enough, volume one, ‘The Burning Heart‘ – which featured Calexico members Joey Burns and John Convertino.

‘Sand And Blood’ continues the special guest theme, containing a duet ‘Land Of The Hummingbird’ – with Guatemalan singer songwriter Gaby Moreno, and co-written with Gabriel Sullivan, of XIXA/Giant Sand.

There are three further songs on the EP – Dolina’, ‘Ashes & Dust’, and ‘She Was A Raven’, which can be obtained via Owens’ Bandcamp page on CD or download as well as at his own website.

You can also catch a set performed by Owens from London venue The Green Note where the Edinburgh-based singer-songwriter performs alongside Kirsten Adamson, and Dave Huckfelt.
