“My songs are my journal entries. Sometimes they’re simply my observations of the world around me; sometimes they’re the conversations that I’m neither brave nor articulate enough to have with others.”
Ginny Owens has been turning those journal entries and otherwise inarticulate conversations into music and lyrics for a decade now. Four critically acclaimed studio projects, a live CD and DVD recorded at the House of Blues in New Orleans, and a Christmas album have comprised Owens’ first ten years of musical offerings.

Ello! bLuE04 here... So, I thought after chatting with former SPers on the live chat tonight, I'd post a blog! I would love to reconnect with everyone! So, if you are a former SPer, then by all means add me as a friend! :D
I know a lot of you guys are still sad that SP closed. But the Girls were only following what they felt God were telling them to do. And now we have this community on their new website! We also have Facebook and Myspace! Woot! :D
So until next time ya'll...
we are not blind, we know the truth
still we don't stand, still we don't choose
we'd rather stay so comfortable
stuck in our worlds under control
We may not pull the trigger but we
stand by and watch and pretend not to see
silence is worse, than evil done,
what in the world have we become?

So for all who missed the BarlowGirl Live Chat, here are some of the questions they answered, I didn't get them all. But they answered about 6-8 questions and sang "Stay With Me". So here are some of the questions:
Betty asked: What is Lauren's real hair color?
Lauren said: brown
Sarah asked: How do you chose who gets to sing lead vocals?
BarlowGirl said: They said they ask what they feel like singing, and what they are going through in their life right now. And they also said that sometimes it's just obvious, like if you get a rock song, Alyssa said that that would be something Lauren would have to sing, because of the differences in their singing voices.
Mariah asked: What does Lauren's necklace say?
Lauren said: It's the Italian word for love. And she got it because it's been their dream to go to Italy.
So this is all the questions I got. Sorry if you missed the live broadcasting!!!
When I was 14 back in 2005, I received their first CD for Christmas, I have loved that CD always, even when I left God, I listen to that CD and it takes me back to Him. I have now found a home with God, thanks to BarlowGirl's ministry and music. I have stepped away from suicide, alcohol addiction, self injury addiction, and making an attempt to quit smoking. I thank BarlowGirl for everything they do. They inspire me and encourage me to trust in God, something no one has done for me in a long time. So I thank you from my heart, blessed be.
WayFM Denver played them all of the time. I fell in love with their first single "Never Alone" and loved every song since then. I went to my first concert in Las Cruces, NM in September of last year and had the best experience. I felt like it was an awesome praise and worship and it helped me get back "on fire" again. I had been really struggling since I left my church in Denver and moved to a small church in my new town. After that concert, I got involved with Sound Post and spent a lot of time praying for the young ladies their. I love BarlowGirl and their ministry and I support it in any way that I can.
