I'm Owen Poteat, a One-Man-Band by choice. I'm Not With the Band, I Am The Band. If you see one of my performances you'll likely see me playing up to 5 instruments at the same time. I'll be playing some kind of foot percussion, usually either a custom made suitcase setup or a full set of Pearl drums. I play these drums with my feet while playing guitar and bass on the same old guitar as well as singing and blowing out some hot licks on the blues harp. Over the years it's grown to be a very polished show that is always a hit.
Take a few minutes and meet my band...
Here's a video of me doing The Wood Brother's song, One More Day. It's a great way for you to get to know my music, especially as I introduce each "player" starting around the 5:00 minute mark of this video. This song is 100% live with just me, my voice and my 5 simultaneous instruments.
Here's a video of me performing Chris Knight's song, Bridal On A Bull on April 14, 2015. It was recorded during the soundcheck for a corporate event in Spartanburg, SC. This is all me... the way I do things... the way I sound right now... 100% live music.
Music has introduced me to lots of interesting folks. From friends made at weddings and private parties, to fans made at festivals and brothers made as I travel around playing my music anywhere I can. My friend Walter made this cool video of me while I was performing at the St. Petersburg, FL Saturday Morning Market. My new friend figured out really quickly that when it comes to the color of one's skin I'm color blind.
