There was a time when Gospel artiste Owen Uriah thought God could never use a man like him. He began his musical journey as a DJ with local sound systems in his home town of Birmingham, England. Owen progressed into a more creative mode as a drummer, but found he had a vocal ability. He decided to use his vocals to lead his band URIAH, which he formed in the mid 1980s. Owen was very successful as a secular artist, fast becoming one of the top artistes on the Club Scene and was in great demand. He toured the country performing classic Soul, RnB and Reggae.
