TIMELINE

Owl Citybutton.gif (123 bytes) Owl City is actually one man: Adam Young from Minnesota. Young has said that his love of creating music stemmed from his bouts of insomnia and hours of creating music in his parents' basement. After the release of 2 independent 'electro-pop' LPs which hit the Top 20 on the Billboard Electronic Albums chart and gaining notice on MySpace, Owl City gained worldwide success with his official debut LP Ocean Eyes. The first single "Fireflies" became a hit pop songs video that helped further launch the interest in Owl City.
