Tim Owens es especialmente conocido por el difícil trabajo de sustituir a Rob Halford en Judas Priest en 1996. Antes de esto era el cantante de Winter's Bane a la vez que colaboraba con una banda de tributo a Judas Priest llamada British Steel, donde había demostrado ser especialmente apto para interpretar el repertorio de la banda.. Con Judas Priest grabó dos álbumes de estudio Jugulator y Demolition, época en que la banda sonaba con un estilo parecido a metallica mientras que el proyecto en solitario de Halford sonaba como Judas Priest. En 2003 Rob Halford retorna a Judas Priest y Owens se unió a Iced Earth, mientras llevaba un proyecto paralelo llamado Beyond Fear. Tambien se vio obligado a dejar esta banda al retorno de Matt Barlow . Posteriormente ha colaborado con Yngwie Malmsteen, con la superbanda Charred Walls of the Damned, ha participado en la banda de covers Ripper , formado la banda Dio Disciples (junto a exmiembros de Dio), colaborado con Helker y dirigido su propio proyecto en solitario. Tim Owens is specially known for the difficult job of replacing Rob Halford in Judas Priest in 1996. Before this important period of his career he was the singer at the band Winter's Bane, and also collaborated with a Judas Priest’s tribute band called British Steel, where he proved to be fit for  singing in a somwhat Halford Style. With Judas Priest he recorded two studio albums Jugulator and Demolition. At that time Judas Priest sounded like Metallica anda Hlaford’s solo project sounded more like Judas Priest. In 2003 Rob Halford returns to Judas Priest and Owens joins Iced Earth as long as he playes with a project called Beyond Fear. He was also fired from this band at the return of their original singer Matt Barlow . Laterly he has collaborated with Yngwie Malmsteen, with the supperband Charred Walls of the Damned, participated in the covers band Ripper , and created the band Dio Disciples (alongside with ex Dio members), collaborated with Helker and leaded his own solo project.
