About Olwen

I grew up in a musical family in Sussex, singing in choirs and playing violin in orchestras from an early age. I learned piano as a child and picked up a guitar when I found myself at university without any instruments. I started writing songs with a friend in the late 90’s and over the last 20 years or so have drawn from a variety of genres including folk, pop and jazz. 

In 2004 I released my first album, Live at the Chapel Royal, followed by Daughter of the King in 2006 and the EP Hardly A Day in 2009, all of which were produced by renowned producer and pianist Mark Edwards, who has produced Stuart Townend, Kate Simmonds and many more artists, both Christian and secular. Daughter of The King and Hardly A Day both received 10/10 reviews from Cross Rhythms

In 2006, I had the privilege of supporting UK worship leader, Kate Simmonds on her final UK tour before moving to Australia. I have also performed at the Tearfund tent at New Wine and was featured on a compilation album released by Essential Christian in 2009.

After the release of Hardly a Day, I took a break from writing to focus on family, but continued to lead worship in my local church. I moved to South Wales in 2016 and began writing again in 2018. and returned with the EP Parables in 2022. I am currently working on a new 10-track album to release later in 2024
