Ceri Owen is a song pianist, researcher, and writer. As a pianist she has given recitals at some of the UK's leading concert halls; highlights in 2019 include an evening recital debut at London's Wigmore Hall with longstanding collaborator Dominic Sedgwick, and a recital with baritone Gareth Brynmor John at the Barber Institute of Fine Arts, Birmingham.

She has also appeared in live and recorded broadcasts for BBC Radio 3.

Her love of song is nourished by work as an academic and writer. She wrote a doctoral thesis on the idea of song in the music of Ralph Vaughan Williams at the University of Oxford, and is currently writing a new biography of the composer.

She founded Cambridge Song while working as a Research Fellow at Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge. She is currently Lecturer and Director of Performance at the University of Birmingham.
