OWEN l TWIABP l EMPIRE! EMPIRE! (I Was A Lonely Estate) l ADVENTURES l DADS l SECRET PLOT TO DESTROY THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE- A Benefit For Newton, CT
[Description]

INSRGNT[arts] & WMUH 91.7 Allentown Present:

A Benefit for Newton, CT

Featuring

OWEN (Mike Kinsella of American Football. Polyvinyl Records)

In the past decade, Chicago's Mike Kinsella has played a variety of instruments in a handful of bands including Cap'n Jazz, Joan of Arc, The One Up Downstairs, American Football, Owls, Maritime, and Aloha. Owen is his solo project.

The impetus for Owen was a direct result of the demise of American Football. Up to that point, having been associated with a number of bands, Mike sought a project where he could have complete creative control over all aspects including songwriting, recording, album artwork, and overall artistic direction.

When it came time to record his solo album, Mike approached Polyvinyl with the idea to take the money that normally would be spent on a recording studio and instead spend it on software so he could record the album on his own. He ended up heading to his mother's house in Chicago and turned his old bedroom into a recording studio. Wishing to avoid the connotations associated with solo singer-songwriters, Mike began recording under the pseudonym, 'Owen.'
