About Al Owen:
Born in Auburn California, Al moved around a lot in and out of schools. His father a cinematographer by trade, gave that up for missionary work in Florida where Al resides today. Raised in a strict family, his father was leading a church youth group, in a very small town in Kansas, Altamont. His father in an effort to attract kids would hold periodic concerts on their 5 acre piece of land in Altamont, featuring Jesus rock bands like HALLELUJAH JOY BAND, Concern, and a number of others through the years. This inspired Al, like most musicians growing up in the church, to pick up a guitar and learn how to play on his own. While living in Bradenton, Florida, His father was the missions director for Christian Retreat, a conference Christian ministry. Al went on to form his own Christian rock band called Majesty in 1979 and later morphed into Zion, in 1984 Zion open up for Stryper at Florida State Fairgrounds. After that Al left the group and had a hiatus from music as far as performing. Soon afterwards he be came the director of music at Cornerstone Church in Lakewood Ranch, Fl. Where he still attends church today. During this brief "time off" he formed and participated in a number of bands, Savant, Rapid Pulse, Blue Gold, working with his compadres, Robert VanDyne, of Cryptic Vision, Peter Taylor from Brixton (England) Andy Kirkpatrick, and Barry Johnson. Each in individually different ideas and different genres.
