From the first moment he picked up a guitar at age 10 and wrote his first song at the age of 15, Owen Danoff knew he wanted to be a songwriter and performer. After his debut performance at his mom's neighborhood restaurant, he played small gigs around his hometown of Washington, DC, finding his voice and realizing he loved being on stage. Though his love was writing and performing, he attended Berklee College of Music for film scoring (inspired by John Williams) and bass. After graduating, Owen released his first full-length album, Twelve Stories, which was well-received by his growing fan base. Owen quickly began working on new music, releasing his single, No Such Thing, which won the American Songwriter Magazine Lyric Contest. While working on his next release, Owen got a call from the producers of NBC's The Voice, inviting him to audition for coaches Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, Pharrell Williams, and Blake Shelton. Receiving the coveted Four Chair Turn, Owen ultimately chose to work with Adam Levine. Under Levine's mentorship, Owen performed his way to the live shows and earned the distinction of being the first Voice contestant ever to play bass on the show.
