Owsley

type
  • Music

Virtual one-man band Will Owsley has played guitar for Shania Twain and Amy Grant, but his home-studio-recorded debut forsakes country polish for the bright new-wave pop of Joe Jackson and the bittersweet melodies of Matthew Sweet and Ben Folds (a former band mate). The disc isn’t exactly an original, but it has hooks galore, lots of blazing six-string, and a radio-ready sound that could ignite a retro-dance craze. B+
