The true projects I put energy into are Owl City, Sky Sailing and Port Blue. The titles of each are merely two words put together that, to me, conjure up a great deal of imagery and thus, are inspiring in and of themselves.

   Ironically the only creative atmosphere I’ve ever known has been alone in a dark basement studio so I didn’t want to mess with that because I never want making music to feel like work. I’m not the greatest mixer/engineer in the world and I’ll be the first to admit I’m not a music genius but that’s not what’s important to me.

     “At the time when I began making music as Owl City, I started to have a lot of daydreams. I was stuck in a world I wasn’t thrilled with. I had no plan; I was just going through the motions. Music was my outlet from the more mundane world. I was singing with this optimistic, light-hearted sound about idealist worlds I wanted to be in. -Adam Young

“This next song is called ‘Take It All Away’ and it’s about cake because I don’t like when people take my cake.”

 At the end of the day if a song does half as well or a fourth as well I’ll still be totally happy cause what was written about the next chapter as Owl City feels very right; so regardless, if everyone loves it and it does great then wonderful.
