I’ve been working hard to write some new tunes. I’d say it will be a good long while before you’ll hear anything of it.

When I write, I sit down with my voice recorder, track a chord progression and whatever catchy riffs are going through my head. Then I put some headphones in and hammer out a rough melody.

I then write words that may or may not work with the feel of the song.


It’s nice to have technology to help you focus on what part of writing at a time.

As I write, I’m wondering if any of you writers and poets out there have any tips for your peer. I’d love to hear them.

In other news, Jillian and I are moving (back) to Lebanon, Illinois. We are so pumped. I’ll have some extra space to continue the writing process.

Love y’all. Just wanted to say what’s up.


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/

    when I write the words come first. i usually wake up with a line going through my head and write it on a notepad so i don’t forget it. most of the time i have all the words within an hour or so and then i agonize putting music to it. lol.the words are easiest for me. i usually have a tune in my head when i get the words and when i go to write the music to it i tend to over complicate it. i am working on simplifying…
