Gerry Owens is the vocalist, songwriter, arranger and producer of Irish Industrial rock band Lluther. Owens was born in Dublin, Ireland. As his father was a musician, Owens was always surrounded by music, particularly film soundtracks and classical/orchestral music. After spending some time in London and playing in a series of bands, he returned to Dublin to form Skindive, who were quickly signed by Chris Blackwell (founder of Island Records) to his Palm Pictures label. Owens wrote, arranged, recorded and co-produced the Skindive album and gained considerable exposure and success worldwide with the band, including rave reviews in publications such as Rolling Stone Magazine, Boston Globe and Rock Sound and the music being featured on the Grammy Awards 2002, MTV Movie Awards 2002 and MTV Road Rules.

Having worked with such names as Danny Saber (David Bowie, U2, Black Grape), Dave 'Rave' Ogilvie (Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails, and Skinny Puppy), Adrian Sherwood (Ministry, Sinéad O'Connor) and Scott Humphries (Rob Zombie), Owens developed his creative and technical abilities extensively. The outcome was Lluther. Owens also worked with Aoife O Leary to help create the Dublin band Moth Complex.
