BioOwen is Mike Kinsella. For nearly ten years now, Mike has been in some of Chicago's favorite bands- American Football, Cap'n Jazz, Joan of Arc and Owls. Of those, he has probably been most closely associated with American Football, in which he did much of the songwriting and guitar-playing, and all of the singing. With Owen, Mike takes American Football's sound to it's next logical level. Mike writes, performs, and records all of his own material. However, that doesn't mean he can't rock out live- which he has done with back-up help from Kyle Fischer of Rainer Maria on Kyle's recent tour and opening on the last few Rainer Maria tours.
