Ginny Owens has spent the past two decades sharing her heart with listeners and readers as a singer/songwriter, author, teacher, and advocate. Her unique musical style and inspirational lyrics have transcended genre definition and taken her to diverse venues that include the White House, the Sundance Film Festival, Lilith Fair and the National Day of Prayer in Washington, D.C. Ginny has also been an adjunct professor at her alma mater, Belmont University, served as a worship leader, partnered with non-profits, and authored two books.
As a toddler, Ginny picked out melodies on the piano before she was able to put words together in a sentence. Even as vision left her eyes — a degenerative eye condition left Ginny completely blind by age three — songs began to emerge from her fingertips, providing a window into the world she could not see.
Cementing her place in the music scene in 2000, when she was named the Gospel Music Association’s New Artist of the Year, the multi-award-winning singer/songwriter has recorded more than ten albums, garnering critical success and chart-topping radio singles and streaming hits, such as “If You Want Me To,” “Free,” “Stand With Me” (feat. Resound), and “Echo.” Ginny has composed for such artists as Michael Card, Michael W. Smith, JJ Heller, and Rachael Lampa. “Fly Away,” a song she co-wrote with David Das for the independent film Trafficked, made the short list to be considered for the 2018 Academy Awards ballot (Best Original Song in a Motion Picture). Her recent set of EPs, entitled Expressions I and II (November, 2020; February, 2021), have amassed millions of streams. And in May, 2021, Ginny released her first EP of modern hymns and praise songs, Sing Hope in the Darkness.
