Open House Conspirancy is excited to welcome legendary talent, the voice of house music himself, Robert Owens. His velvety vocals and powerful lyrics are behind timeless hits like “Tears,” “I’ll Be Your Friend,” and “Bring Down the Walls.” Working with Larry Heard as Fingers Inc., he was there for the birth of deep house through the group’s seminal classics “Mystery of Love,” “Can You Feel It,” and “Distant Planet.” Not just a brilliant artist, Owens is also an extraordinary DJ, bridging the gap between early Chicago house and its future forms.
