Luther "Luke" Owens 1930s musician in Texas

Hello. I am trying to solve a mystery and locate some information about a man named Luther Owens, nicknamed Luke, who was a musician in Central Texas in the 1930s and made recordings during 1936-38 with a San Antonio-based band called the Nite Owls and he also recorded as a guitarist with future country star Al Dexter during this same period. Mr. Owens played guitar, sang and wrote a few of the songs that he recorded with the Nite Owls. I can place him in San Antonio during the 1935-38 period but know absolutely nothing else. He was a heavy set guy, probably no older than 25 -- born c. 1908-1915 or so. I am not a relative -- this pertains to music related research. I'd be grateful for any help -- Thanks.
