Owl City coming to campus

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Electro-pop performer Owl City is swooping into Orem on July 13th for a night of music at the UCCU Center on campus.

Since 2007, Owl City, the solo project of singer/songwriter Adam Young, has been gaining fans, primarily through its Myspace page. After releasing two albums on his own, Young signed with Universal Republic and released his best-known album to date, Ocean Eyes, in 2009. This album featured the quadruple-platinum hit Fireflies, which received extensive radio play.

Fans of Owl City can expect a fantastic show on the 13th. Adam Young is known as one of the friendliest touring performers today and loves to form friendships with his audiences. “There has always been a mood that I want to convey via sound, which is optimism,” Young said on his video “Road Stories”.  Fans seem to agree. You can’t listen to Owl City without feeling happy, bouncing around, and generally enjoying life.

Owl City came through Utah once before in 2010 to promote Ocean Eyes. With the release of All Things Bright and Beautiful, the sophomore album from Owl City, fans get another chance to rock out with Adam Young and his backing band made up of “friends and friends of friends.”
