The Owls (Maria May, Allison LaBonne and Brian Tighe) are three songwriters who make harmony rich, melodic, acoustic indie pop; and are currently working on their third release. The Owls formed in 2000 and hail from Minneapolis, MN. Other members over the years include drummers Stephen Ittner and John Jerry.
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
