BACKGROUND AND LIVE

Isaac Haselkorn, better known by his stage name Almost Owen (or AO) began performing in bars and jazz clubs when we was 11. He grabbed the attention of grammy winning percussionist Jamey Haddad, who would include him in studio sessions and performances with other legends: Paul Simon, Kenny Werner, Paul Winter to name a few. Their advice...travel internationally, study broad music styles, and perform for audiences everywhere.


Four years, 12 countries, and 500+ shows later, AO is gearing up to the release his first album ate Night Dangerou in his home city of Boston, where he was selected as one of its 25 most influential personalities for 2018 by The Improper Bostonian
