JASON OWEN - 'SO THIS IS CHRISTMAS'
Country music recording artist Jason Owen is gearing up for a massive 2020 festive period with the release of his first ever Christmas single 'So This is Christmas'. Jason recorded the cover of the classic John Lennon & Yoko Ono song to coincide with his charity run for Doin It For Rural Aussie Kids. Jason’s charity raises funds for children doing it tough in regional areas.
Jason says: “I’ve wanted to release this cover version for a while now as the words really resonate with what I’ve been trying to achieve with my charity. Next year marks the 50th anniversary of when this iconic song was first released so I’m honoured to be singing such an impactful, timeless tribute. I also had a group of kids from the Blue Mountains, NSW – one of the bushfire-affected areas – singing the backing tracks which made it even more poignant. I hope it will bring joy to people.”
Jason will shortly embark on an epic drive covering 10,000 kms in 10 days across New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia and Victoria in line with restrictions to personally deliver funds, toys, gifts and groceries to more than 500 children in need, supporting local businesses along the way. Major sponsors include Coles, Big W, Officeworks, Bunnings and Taronga Western Plains Zoo.
A proportion of funds raised through sales of 'So This is Christmas' will be donated to Doin It For Rural Aussie Kids.
Bursting onto the Australian music scene in 2012 as runner up of the X-Factor, Jason launched his debut album “Life Is A Highway” which debuted at number one on the ARIA Top 40 Country Albums chart and number five on the ARIA Top 20 Australian Albums chart. He has since released three more albums. “Friday Night” containing his first original hit single ‘Damn Right’; “Proud”, his first all-originals album celebrating his First Nations background and most lately, “Jason Owen Sings John Denver: the 20th Anniversary”.
