I know I’m kinda slow but I just found out about Owl City! Adam Young is really inspirational. If you guys haven’t heard about his story, he created a music project called Owl City in his parents’ basement, where he turned to music as a result of insomnia. He started uploading his songs onto MySpace and they became a viral popularity among the community, which led to him signing on Universal Republic.

His third album called Ocean Eyes was released on iTunes in July 2009, and his wonderful single, Fireflies, was a phenomenal hit! It topped the US and Canadian charts and became the most-downloaded song on iTunes in the US. Although his music is synthpop, I feel that his songs have a childlike quality to it and it is awesome. I highly recommend listening to it!

You can buy the album Ocean Eyes here on iTunes and make sure you check out his website Owl City Music!
