What’s Up?

Thought I’d drop you a line and say hey.

I got home from Beulah Youth Institute Saturday evening. It’s a Methodist church camp located in El Dorado, Illinois. The week consisted of about 12 worship services and an acoustic set of Owen Pye songs for the graduating seniors. I also taught two “seminars” on “music and poetry.” More so music than poetry. 😉

I got to catch up on some sleep and my wife has been very graceful to let me sleep that extra hour in the mornings. Praise God for her!

This is the band for the week who led worship with me. Boy were they solid!:

(from left: me, josh reeves (drums), justin froning (bass), and shane zimmer (guitar.)

I think that was the only picture we got together not on stage the whole week. We were just wrapping up at the Mexican restaurant down the street. Oh boy.

Right now I’m sniffing around for different jobs to possibly take on. I’m also starting to write music again for a potential record some day. I have very little details on that at the moment.

The recurring theme of my life is being open to what God wants us to do next. We have a hunch or two as to what that looks like. But per the usual, God usually gives us the details way later than we think we need them.


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/

    may the Lord bless you as you wait on Him! That catching up on sleep went along with catching up on laundry at my house – with 3 of us at Beulah for the week. Loved your heart of worship and thankful to God that He allowed us to share the week together in worship and learning of Him.
