Several years after releasing his commercial breakthrough album Stop All The World Now, singer and songwriter Howie Day breaks his silence with his long-awaited third studio album Sound the Alarm. The album is a stunning collection of the kind of emotionally resonant, melody-minded pop-rock gems that have earned Day a legion of devoted fans over the past 10 years. Sound the Alarm comes after more than a decade of touring, during which the Bangor, Maine, native self-released his 2000 debut Australia and became a full-time traveling musician. He became known for his powerful one-man shows, connecting with audiences through his charm, humor, the strength of his songwriting, and a warm tenor voice that "soars into fluttering, high registers, but also grates with real, pleading grit," as one critic put it.

The story of Owen Beverly, where to begin where to end... Since I'm doing this myself I guess there are no rules;

I grew up in Mississippi, it sounds more rustic than it was. If I said lived in a white suburban neighborhood we might loose traction, so for the sake of this bio I grew up in a snake infested swamp. The moccasins were so plentiful, we kicked them off the front porch like pine cones. I learned to play the guitar and I joined a blues quartet called Lou's Blues. I was a sixteen year old boy in a band of middle aged black guys, they dubbed me "White Lightnin". Late at night in the empty juke joints of New Orleans, Vicksburg, and the Mississippi gulf coast I drank whiskey from mason jars and cut my teeth.
I went to college in Charleston, South Carolina and studied Music Theory and Composition. The musical theorems I found to be true included: 1. Roy Orbison was the greatest composer of all time. 2. The term 20th century classical music was an oxymoron. 3. Rock N' Roll is in fact the Devil's Music.
It was an exciting time and fun was had by all. I went on tour with Howie Day and John Mayor, my debut record "The Drunk Lover EP" was featured on HBO's Entourage. I threw TV's out of hotel windows and ran from the police. Richard Branson of Virgin fame flew me to New York on my 21st birthday where I danced on a table in the hotel lobby dressed only in running shorts. I was 30 lbs under weight and on top of the world. Then before I knew it it was 2005 and the music business tanked.
Things got weird, I moved back to Jackson and grew increasingly nervous of nuclear fallout. Hurricain Katrina Hit the gulf. I got medicated and started painting houses for a living. I discovered that in fact Towns Van Zant was the greatest composer of all time. I wandered around north Mississippi searching for the ghosts of Robert Johnson and William Faulkner, and couldn't even find myself. They put me on Lithium, and I decided I wanted to do a mainstream country album which is strange because I have a notable disdain for mainstream country music. Needless to say It flopped so I got off the Lithium and went back to self medicating.
In 2008 I returned to Charleston to reunited with my college friend and fellow jaded musician Joel Hamilton. We started a band called InLaws and began touring the Americana circuit. We teamed up with old pals Cary Ann Hearst, Michael Trent, and Saddler Vaden to start Shrimp Records.
The winds of change blew once more and brought me to Brooklyn, New York where I currently reside. I am a songwriter to the stars, brewmaster, leader of the band French Camp and happier than hell. I miss the south with endearment deeper than the sea, though I feel at peace floating on the surface, drifting aimlessly, waiting to be rescued and writing my memoirs. Who knows what the future will bring when the past has been so giving?
