South by So, What’s Up?

Hello friends!
I am writing to you via iPhone in the midst of a connecting flight to Austin, Texas. I’m headed there to play at the beloved SXSW (South by Southwest.)

The showcase I’m playing at is really neat and if are near Austin you should stop in. (1:45 PM at Bayou Lounge – 500 6th Street. Free. $5 for minors.)

If you don’t live near Austin or are not in town for the festival, never fear. You can watch the entire performance via live stream. Go here and it will tell you how!:

TuneCore (an online distributor for independent musicians) did a 29 track sampler for SXSW artists and put it up for FREE on Amazon. I’m the last track with my song “Success.” Get it here!:

TuneCore is also doing a cool photo contest for people at SXSW where you can win free stuff just for snapping a photo of one of their artists. I’m included in this contest. Here are all the details:

That’s all I have for the moment. Tour has been pretty decent thus far. It’s been wonderful getting to meet new people and see some old friends.

My wife has been keeping better updates than me:

I just met a cool dude on my flight named Everett. (fun fact.)

Talk to you guys later!

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.
