Owen 27.07.2016ANDREW


Owen will release his latest album, The King Of Whys, via Polyvinyl Records this Friday, July 29. The solo project of American Football frontman, Mike Kinsella, Owen’s new record was produced by Sean Carey in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, and has already had plaudits from many in the industry’s press.


The King Of Whys is available to stream in full (http://www.spin.com/2016/07/mike-kinsella-owen-king-of-whys-interview-premiere-album-stream) and available on limited edition vinyl through pre-order, here. It will be released outside of North America via Wichita Recordings. Owen’s prior outings were almost entirely performed by Kinsella on his own, though Carey has drafted in some of Wisconsin’s finest players to pad things out.


Wisconsin musicians such as Zach Hanson, served as engineer on the record, with violist Michael Noyce, pedal steel guitarist/keyboardist Ben Lester, horns player Andy Hofer, and bassist Jeremy Botcher all feature. These guys all share credits with people including Bon Iver, aforementioned S. Carey, The Tallest Man On Earth and more.

I've always wanted to be involved in the media since before I even left school; to write for a living.I feel most eloquent when mapping out my thoughts on paper or on a computer screen.I studied media at college for two years, and went straight into third year at university studying publishing with journalism.After a range of work experience, I did a magazine journalism course in Bournemouth, a long way away from my hometown of Aberdeen, achieving my NCTJ qualifications.Now I spend my time gladly writing about music.
