I was lucky enough to discover Ireland's Owsey (pronounced Oh-Zee) a short time ago, and I was able to catch-up with him and ask him a bit about what inspires his music. The experiential approach he takes when producing his songs can be deemed somewhat magical. Owsey's track that I covered within my last article, "At the Top of Our Hill, We Could See the Atlantic", was one I felt the need to share with the Earmilk audience. It's a beautiful track, and it is one that is obviously from deep within the artist. It took vocals from Ellie Goulding's rendition of the Temper Trap's "Sweet Disposition".

I was pleased to see Owsey's newest release today is a remix of Ms. Goulding's track "The Writer". Owsey's distinct sound has twisted the original track into a gem of it's own. His version of "The Writer" has a recognizable vibe to it, similar to that of his other tracks. He has somehow found a way to add an ambient-esque feel to the track while keeping it true to itself. It takes someone incredibly talented, in my opinion, to keep the originality of a song in tact while adding your own twist to it. This track is a job well done. Enjoy!
