"Owen is a solo project of musician Mike Kinsella. Kinsella is one of the dominant figures in the Chicago indie scene, having also led the band American Football, and played in the bands Cap’n Jazz, Joan of Arc and Owls. Owen is known for its soft melodies, complex acoustics, combining lead acoustics with keyboard and other guitars, plaintive vocals and on occasions adding drums.
It can be seen as a natural progression for Kinsella, from the progressive and experimental severity of Joan of Arc via the more melodic-progressive American Football, which disbanded in 2000.
Albums include Owen (2001), No Good for No One Now (2002), I Do Perceive (2004) The Ep (2005), At Home With Owen (2006) and New Leaves (2009)."
