The Owls are a rare band gifted with three very talented songwriters who are also three wonderful singers, each perfectly suited for the kind of melancholy, intimate setting they songs create. When they blend together in different formations, it can raise goose bumps and warm hearts. –All Music Guide
The Owls (Allison LaBonne, Brian Tighe, Maria May) are three songwriters in Minneapolis who make harmony rich, melodic, acoustic indie pop. After forming in 2000 they released Our Hopes and Dreams (2004), and Daughters and Suns (2007) to wide acclaim; and are currently working on their third album slated for 2016 release on Korda Records.
