Each weeknight from 8-Midnight I feature up and coming artists or artists we know with new songs being released and I give them the “spotlight.”

Tonight’s ClubMix Spotlight features Minnesota's Adam Young of Owl City. Grew up in Owatonna playing music in the basement for something to do in a small town. Back when MySpace was cool and a great tool for artists, Adam gained a following and signed with Universal Republic and put out his first "official" album, Ocean Eyes, featuring the huge hit "Fireflies." The electronic infused pop gives Owl City a fun, upbeat sound mixed with Adam's great vocals!

Now on his fourth album, The Midsummer Station, due for release on August 14th, his new single "Gold" is getting lots of fans excited for his tour. Owl City plays at the Varsity in Minneapolis on July 13th. Mix 94-9 will have your tickets to the show!

Let's give a warm Central Minnesota "Welcome Home" applause for Owl City. Happy to be supporting Minnesota musicians! Check out Owl City Online, Faceook, and Twitter!
