Owl City

It’s a electronica musical project created by Adam Young, a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. It was formed in 2007 in Owatonna, Minnesota. He experimented with the music in his parents’ home.

This music is described as indietronica and synthpop and is often classified under the “electronic music” label. Young is inspired by disco and European electronic music, as well as instrumental genres such as drone, ambient, and post-rock.

Young writes, composes, records, and produces all of Owl City’s music. But, in the concerts, he is accompanied by a group of supporting musicians. They are:

– Breanne Düren –  keyboards, backing vocals.

– Daniel Jorgensen – guitar, vibraphone.

– Laura Musten – violin.

– Hannah Schroeder – cello.

– Casey Brown – drums.

These are his studio albums:

– Maybe I’m Dreaming (2008)

– Ocean Eyes (2009)

– All Things Bright and Beautiful (2011)

– The Midsummer Station (2012)

This was his most famous song and thanks to this he is famous:
