Formed in 2007, OWL CITY is the electronica-music brainchild of Minnesota-born Adam Young whose foray into music came about as a means of distraction from his insomnia. After gathering much attention on social networking site MySpace through the EP ‘OF JUNE’ and self-released debut album ‘MAYBE I’M DREAMING’, OWL CITY signed with Universal Republic in 2008. In 2009, OWL CITY shot to fame with ‘OCEAN EYES’, its major-label debut album that spawned singles such as ‘Vanilla Twilight’, ‘Umbrella Beach’, and the quadruple-platinum chart-topping single ‘Fireflies’. OWL CITY’S debut album sold over a million copies and was certified platinum by the RIAA in April 2010.
OWL CITY returned in 2011 with ‘ALL THINGS BRIGHT AND BEAUTIFUL’, which peaked at #2 on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Albums chart. The following year, in 2012, OWL CITY released ‘THE MIDSUMMER STATION’, an album that saw Young collaborating with other artistes such as Blink 182’s Mark Hoppus on the song ‘Dementia’, and on ‘Good Time’with Carly Rae Jepsen. ‘THE MIDSUMMER STATION’ eventually peaked at #1 on Billboard’s Canadian Albums chart. Owl City has also contributed to movie soundtracks such as “When Can I See You Again” from Wreck-It Ralph, collaboration with Yuna “Shine Your Way” from The Croods and “Live It Up” from the upcoming Smurfs 2.
