What’s Happening?

Can I just ask, where has 2012 gone?

It’s already mid-February and I am still making my New Year’s resolutions.

My biggest weakness as a human being, is time management. Using the few extra minutes that God gives me to write a song, or do a blog post, or read my bible. Instead I am one of those folks that just totally zones out. Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with a little zoning. But the amount I zone has brought me to an over-zone zone.

I’d like to give a shootout to my friends, SONS, who came out with a new album on Tuesday. It’s rad. They’re rad. Check em out.

I’m in the middle of wrapping up the writing process of this album that I’m working on. I hope to have all the rough drafts done in the next 2 weeks and start in the studio shortly after.

There’s a number of cool shows coming down the chute. I need to cross some t’s and dot some i’s, but I can at least tell you about AgapeFest (Greenville, IL) and JoshuaFest (Plymouth, CA.) Both the festivals have some awesome bands playing and are worth the ticket prices. FOR REAL.

If you would like me to come play a show in your town, please let me know. I’m going to start tentatively planning out the next 6-12 months and would love to have all my friends on the map. If you’re a venue/college/church/camp director, etc. or you know someone who is. Tell em about OP and send em over to the contact page (www.owenpye.com/contact) – Willing to work with any and all budgets to make stuff happen. Even if you’re just wanting to throw a small house show, let me know.

In closing, I’d love to share a Jack Handy quote with all of you…
“When you die, if you have a choice between heaven or pie heaven, choose pie heaven. It may be a trick, but if not, mmm….boy.”

Until next time,
– OP


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/
