Biography


Owl City is a stage name which refers to Adam Young's synthpop/alternative dance project. Formed in early 2007, he called it as a result of his insomnia which forced him to go to his parents' basement and make music in there. From playing music inside the basement, Owl City was ready to showcase his music to the world. He created a MySpace profile and dropped a debut single "Hello Seattle" in 2007 which received more than 6 million plays on the web. Following the success of the song, he released an indie mini album called "Of June" which included 7 tracks. Though only getting self-promotion, the album managed to peak at number 20 on Billboard Electronic Albums chart.

Still unsigned, he was fearless to make another album. In 2008, a full-length indie effort called "Maybe I'm Dreaming" came out. Like his mini album, this record also cracked the Top 20 of Billboard Electronic Albums chart. Every catchy tune which was born from the hands of Owl City was influenced by electronic music from Imogen Heap, Relient K, Boards of Canada and Armin van Buuren.
