It seems that the only thing foreseen more frequently than a big pop revival is the death of Beatlesque rock & roll. Neither prediction ever quite comes true. As sure as you can count on a Crowded House coming along every few years to serve as a new messiah for pure pop, you know you'll soon be scratching your head and pondering, What ever happened to Jellyfish? But they just keep coming. Will Owsley is the latest Great Hope to step forward. Owsley fronted the Semantics, a Southern trio whose Geffen debut was never shipped. After that bitter disappointment, the group's drummer--one Ben Folds--moved on and Owsley ended up in the touring bands of Amy Grant and Shania Twain. Don't draw any conclusions based on his past employers, however. Owsley plays rock & roll, albeit of the lyrically wistful, lovingly arranged variety. Owsley needs to pour a little more of his own soul into his work, but while he learns how to bring greater depth to his songs, the surface-level pleasures found on this self-titled debut are plenty captivating. --Steven StolderSee all Editorial Reviews
I just now was exposed to the music of the late Will Owsley and I can not fullyexpress just how great he was. Very sad he took his life at a very young age. We lost a great one. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Wade E. Boy

This is one of the best albums of the 90's. Too bad it's creator recently ended his own life. He seemed so optimistic, I guess the lack of success weighed on him. Read morePublished on May 1, 2010 by Tim Taylor
I just thought I would check out what was being said about this guy here on Amazon because I thought I might be the only person who have heard of him. Read morePublished on April 12, 2008 by James C. Varley
This guy has got the chops, no doubt about it. Yet what makes this music so alluring is that it's just easy to listen to. It is NOT easy listening. Read morePublished on January 9, 2007 by Steve Betts
