Owl City Tickets Information
Owl City dabbles in a genre that was long-forgotten since the early years of 1990s, but was revived later as synthpop. It was created by this amazing multi-instrumentalist, singer and songwriter Adam Young while he was experimenting and trying out new kinds of music in the basement of his parent’s house. At that time Adam Young was afflicted with insomnia as he worked for the Coco Cola Company, loading its trucks in Owatonna. He decided to compose his own music and uploaded his songs onto a popular networking site, MySpace . From there he got a lot of positive reviews and encouragement. It was from this site that Owl City was noticed and developed its fan base. Adam Young took special interest in his fans, answering all their queries and being in touch with them regularly. This helped him in developing a healthy relationship with his fans.
Following this Adam signed a deal with CD Baby , a digital aggregator. This helped him to release and sell his songs officially on iTunes , an even more famous music site. Owl City debuted its first EP in the year 2007, called "Of June", which was followed by another album titled "Maybe I’m dreaming Of June" in 2008. Both of these albums reached the 15 th and 13 th spots on the Billboard Electronic Albums chart, respectively. After these albums, which were released independently, Owl City was able achieve mainstream success in the year 2009, with its first ever major label album, titled "Ocean Eyes". This album was released by the Universal Republic , who approached Adam Young with a deal and partnered him up with Steve Bursky from the Foundation Arts Management Company, as his manager.
Owl City’s album "Ocean Eyes" was released on the 14 th of July in 2009 on iTunes. It was its second ever full-length album. This extraordinary album made its debut on the 27 th spot on the Billboard 200 . Officially three singles from the album called "Fireflies", "Umbrella Beach" and "Vanilla Twilight" were released. The song "Fireflies" was a quadruple-platinum hit single from the album and made it to the top of the charts all over Canada and America. It also went on to become a song which was downloaded the most on iTunes in America. The album went Platinum in America in the month of April in 2010, along with topping the American Album and Electronic charts.
Owl City also took over the UK audience with its songs, as they were downloaded the most for quite some time. On the 21 st of September in 2010, another single was released on iTunes, titled "To the sky" and on the 13 th November in the same year, a new album, "Flight" was released as a part of Adam Young’s another project called "Windsor Airlift". Then Owl City’s album "All Things Bright and Beautiful" was released on the 14 th of June. This album also went on to become a huge hit and peaked at the 1 st spot on iTunes American Album chart along with reaching the 8 th spot in Canada.
