2010 – What a Year!

So 2010 has had a lot going for it. I thought I’d try and think back to my accomplishments, failures, and most-memorables.

In January our car encountered a hit-and-run that really did a number on our pocket book:

– In April my lovely wife turned 21!

In June me and my Sunday School Band friends played at Ichthus Music Festival in Kentucky.

In July I turned 23! and Cash turned 1!

In August my wife and I celebrated our 2nd year of marriage. 🙂

In August I signed to Blackroom Records and began recording my new album, that’s out on 2.22.11.

In October we threw a house show with Denison Witmer at our place.

In November we became members at our church that we love dearly, August Gate.

In December we had the craziest Christmas of our lives.

And that’s just the big stuff. Not to mention finishing an album, playing 33 OP shows in 7 states, leading worship here and other places in the area. Meeting tons of new people, visiting dear friends and drinking way too much coffee in the process. Oh and I managed to keep my full-time job throughout all of that.

2011 is said to be even busier. There’s already about 30 shows on the bill with many more in the works. Cash will be 2. TWO!! I’ll be planning my 5-year highschool reunion. That should be interesting.

I am so thankful that God keeps us busy, and that he allows us to make new friends all of the time.

Thank you guys for always keeping us in your prayers, donating a few bucks whenever you’re able and above all caring enough to read this post. 🙂

It means a lot to have you in my life.

What do you have planned for this year?

About owenpye

Owen Pye began playing in 2005, with just a guitar and a plan: To share music with willing listeners. As cliche as that may seem, it’s exactly what he’s doing. Pye was getting a lot of exposure on myspace, with his boastful 20,000 fans and thorough independently booked tour schedule in his early years supporting his debut album “If That’s Cool With You.” To date, Owen Pye has shared the stage with some of the best up and coming artists including Deas Vail (Mono VS. Stereo) Dr. Manhattan (Vagrant) and New London Fire (Eyeball.) He has independently booked over 250 shows in the United States. In 2008 he teamed up with some friends to form a consistent full-band line-up known as “Owen Pye & The Sunday School Band.” With the help of producer and engineer Andrew Osenga (Caedmon’s Call, The Normals) they released their self-titled record to the masses in late 2009. During the summer of 2010, Pye began his solo project with Blackroom Records. When asked about the upcoming project, Owen Pye responded, “This is very, very exciting and I am SO pumped to work with these folks for the next year in support of the record.” To learn more about Owen Pye, pickup a CD, download an MP3 or come out to a show near you. http://www.owenpye.com/
