Before Owl City there was Sky Sailing. Owl City is an American electronica project created in 2007 in Owatonna, Minnesota; it is one of several projects by singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Adam Young. Why the transition in the name? We mean, both projects sound the SAME. Adam Young has always wooed us with his amazing soothing voice. Though he may be compared to front man, Ben Gibbard of Death Cab For Cutie, but we think Adam wins this round for best soothing voice. Can't imagine how beautiful he may sound when mad.
