Owen Meany’s Batting Stance

Characterised as ‘impassioned literary folk’, Owen Meany’s Batting Stance is the moniker of Halifax via Guelph singer-songwriter Daniel Walker. Walker’s work embarks on an exploration of how a song can be used to cradle narratives, weaving lyrics and melodies to sew stories and express personal longings, frustrations, and all else that results from his tangles with cultural introspection.

Daniel Walker, which might very well be one of the smartest artists on the roster, is a storyteller and his work is often influenced by literature, as indicates the moniker “Owen Meany’s Batting Stance” which is inspired by the famous book “A Prayer for Owen Meany” by John Irving. His first self-titled album/EP was released in 2017 and his new opus will be out soon via Rhyme & Rhythm Records in North America and via DanCan in Europe.

Walker’s persona on stage is somewhat introverted and quirky; his music is lyrics-driven and melancholic. To fully appreciate the experience and delight that is Owen Meany’s Batting Stance, one has to listen, and listen well, and enjoy the storytelling of a master of his craft.
