Who is Owl City?

Owl City is an American electronica project created in 2007 in Owatonna, Minnesota; it is one of several projects by singer, songwriter and multi-
instrumentalist Adam Young. Young created the project while experimenting with music in his
parents’ basement. Owl City developed a following
on the social networking site MySpace, like many musicians who achieved success in the late 2000s,
before signing with Universal Republic Records, now Republic Records, in 2008. After two independent releases, Owl City gained
mainstream popularity with the 2009 major label
debut album Ocean Eyes, which includes the six- time platinum single “Fireflies”. The album was certified platinum in the United States in April
2010. In June 2011, Owl City released its third studio
album, All Things Bright and Beautiful, which was followed by The Midsummer Station in August 2012. Owl City has recorded songs for several animated
films, including Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole, Wreck-It Ralph, The Croods and The Smurfs 2. Owl City also has released several charting singles, most notably “Good Time” and “Fireflies”.
