The Owl Service originally began as a studio-based solo project for Steven Collins in June 2006. While working on the first Owl Service release (the Wake the Vaulted Echo EP from 2006) he met Dom Cooper of The Straw Bear Band who was drafted in to provide lead vocals on the song The Two Magicians. Dom remained involved with The Owl Service until March 2012 singing, writing songs, and co-ordinating the band's graphic design . The Fabric of Folk (CD) (2008) (Static Caravan).

The Owl Service was originally intended to be a studio-based solo vehicle for Steven Collins, but while working on the first Owl Service release (the Wake the Vaulted Echo EP from 2006) he felt the need to enlist some help with vocal duties and this resulted in collaborations with Rebsie Fairholm (who sang on the debut EP, but then made only one. more fleeting appearance with the band on the Bitter Night EP in 2008) and Dom Cooper of The Straw Bear Band, who remained involved with The Owl Service until March 2012; singing, writing songs and co-ordinating the band's graphic design. While recording the debut Owl Service album later that year, two permanent female singers joined the band; Jo Lepine and Diana Collier. The band's debut album, A Garland of Song, was released on Collins' own Hobby-Horse micro-label in July 2007.

A few photographs from yesterdays launch of Petals and Claws at Oriel Plas Glyn Y Weddw. We were very lucky to have Alan Garner's daughter Katharine Darby with us and to launch the show she gave a short talk about how Alan came to write The Owl Service and her personal memories of those events. David Heke followed Katharine's talk with a short introduction to Petals and Claws. Later that afternoon Jacqueline McCormick gave two 15 minute presentations of her solo dance piece Meadowsweet, Oak and Broom.
The Owl Service have a new EP due out on Rif Mountain titled There Used to be a Crown. It contains 4 great covers of the legendary US psych folk band Pearls Before Swine. It was Pearls Before Swine that partly inspired Owl Service founder Steven Collins to form the band 6 years ago. You only need to listen to Translucent Carriages and compare it to the original (listen below) to grasp the respect they have for the original materia. very fitting tribute from the Owl Service who have an incredible magic and authenticity in their music that transports you back in time. Listen to it in full below
