Album Notes
Spencer Owen (b. Los Angeles, r. Oakland) is a pop music polymath. Unafraid of eclecticism both sonic and stylistic, he supplements his gift for melody and arrangement with restless aesthetic creativity.

BLUE CIRCLE is, by a revised count, Owen's 9th album. (The count is revised to exclude no fewer, and in reality greater, than 25 other albums that he has since excised from his "official" discography.) It is also his second collaboration with Santa Cruz-based producer and engineer Drew Stoeckel (James Rabbit), following 2012's END VOGUE. The pop songs on BLUE CIRCLE have been maturing for the better part of a decade, finding their most realized state here. Though the aesthetic represented is relatively restrained by comparison to his wild, lower-fidelity home recordings, it is nonetheless open to the artist's idiosyncratic desires, inspired by, in no small part, a quarter-life obsession with Prince.

The album also features two compositions by longtime friend and collaborator John Acquadro, based in New Jersey and otherwise known as Goodbye The Band.

Owen's band, the Spencer Owen Timeshare, will be performing in California (and beyond...?) to support BLUE CIRCLE. He has previously played/collaborated with Sonny & the Sunsets, Sean Smith, Bird By Snow and James Rabbit, and has shared stages/rooms with Ariel Pink, tUnE-yArDs, Dominique Leone, Ava Mendoza, SAFE, Wooden Wand, Iji, the Nocturnes and many more.
