Growing up in the Rockies of Colorado, Betty Elaine Chandler Owen began formal music training at age 4. Her gift for music led to degrees in voice and piano, accompanied by acclaimed performances from the West Coast to the Deep South. Having recently left the lush surrounding of Northwest Washington, she currently finds inspiration from the surroundings of Southern Utah's color country where she puts her many talents to use helping with the family business and home schooling her children as well as composing, performing, teaching, directing and producing her music. Her zest for life and love of nature is reflected in the rich variety of her music and performances. Her passion for music is exceeded only by her love of family. Married and mother of 5, she finds her greatest joys and moments coming from being a Mother and making home a little bit of heaven. Combining her passion for music and the love of her family, she has created The Owen Family Celtic Christmas. The Bret Sevy famlily joins the Owen family in creating one of the most enjoyable CDs ever made.
