Biography Owl City

Owl City is an electronica/
pop project of Adam
Young. Formed in early
2007, in Owatonna,
Minnesota, Owl City has
reached the Top Unsigned Artist position on
Myspace, having over 10
million total plays. Owl City
has released the EP “Of June” in 2007 and the album “Maybe I’m Dreaming” 2008. In July of 2009, the
album “Ocean Eyes” was released. Young maintains two side projects,
Swimming With Dolphins, and Port Blue. “If your household appliances wrote love songs while you were away on
vacation, their cheerful blips and bleeps would pour out the windows, sweep
through the neighborhood like candy-coated tidal waves, and you would
return home to find crowds of people standing on your lawn, clapping and
singing along to the happiest pop melodies imaginable. Welcome to Owl
City.” Musisi Amerika Adam Young membentuk proyek musik Owl City yang
diangkat dari pengalaman insomnianya. Musiknya merupakan gabungan
synth pop dan elektronika dengan sentuhan new wave ‘80an. Sound dan
vokal yang dihasilkan adalah perpaduan Ben Gibbard dengan Postal Service
dan Daniel Hunter dari playradioplay! Beberapa lagunya seperti Fireflies dan
The Tip Of The Iceberg bahkan agak mirip dengan notasi Such Great Heights dan Sleeping In milik Postal Service. Young mampu menampilkannya
dengan warna yang lebih muda dan ia berhasil menghadirkan lagu-lagu yang
tidak membuat pendengarnya mengerutkan kening. Jika hard rockers
menggemari Ben Gibbard dan Postal Service, maka album ini wajib dimiliki. Adam R Young atau lebih dikenal sebagai Adam Young merupakan a-one-
man-band dibalik Owl City. Lahir 5 July 1988, berasal dari suatu kota kecil,
Owatonna, di daerah Minessota, yang berhasil menempati top charts all over
the world. Adam yang memiliki problem dengan waktu tidurnya-insomnia. “The creative
juices start flowing most when I’m lying awake with nothing to do. My mind is
quiet, and my thoughts are collected, and that’s when I find that the ideas
really start happening.” Adam memperjelas. Tahun 2007, kekasih dari Ann Monson ini bekerja di sebuah gudang Coca
Cola dan tinggal dengan orang tuanya (ayahnya seorang mekanik dan ibunya
guru). Adam spend his time stay in his basement and making music.
