A Chat With Adam Young of Owl City
Adam Young of Owl City is excited to tour with John Mayer this summer....I really hope John Mayer doesn't ruin him, because he is such a sweet, nice......well, the word gentleman comes to mind...
I still remember hearing "Fireflies" for the first time last summer, at the Wonder Ballroom. I had never heard of Owl City, but they were opening for one of my fave bands on the planet, Relient K. I got the CD and couldn't stop listening to it....driving everyone I know a bit crazy (I tend to do that when I really like a CD). Seems like a lot of people were like me and couldn't get enough of that song. "Fireflies" is one of the biggest hits of the year. Adam Young is bringing Owl City back to Portland Saturday night for a show that sold out pretty much the day tickets went on sale. Adam called in this week to chat and I have to say he was every bit as sweet and kind as I had been told. Listen to clips below!
