"Kelly Lee Owens' masterful second album Inner Song finds the convention-blurring techno producer and singer/songwriter diving deep into her own psyche-excoriating the struggles she's faced over the last several years and exploring personal pain while embracing the beauty of the natural world. It's a leap in artistry from a musician who burst forth on the scene with a confident, rich sound, and Inner Song is endlessly enticing when it comes to what Owens is capable of.Her latest album comes off of what Owens describes as 'the hardest three years of my life,' an emotionally fraught time that, in her words, 'Definitely impacted my creative life and everything I'd worked for up to that point. I wasn't sure if I could make anything anymore, and it took quite a lot of courage to get to a point where I could make something again.' So while the lovely cover of Radiohead's 'Arpeggi' might strike some as an unconventional way to open a sophomore effort, to Owens the winding take on the classic tune - recorded a year before work on Inner Song properly kicked off - represents the sort of sonic rebirth that's so essential to Inner Song's aura.Inner Song was largely written and recorded over a month last winter. As with her debut, Owens holed up in the studio with co-producer and collaborator James Greenwood - and letting loose in the studio and being open to whatever sonic whims emerge was essential to Owens' craftwork." - Smalltown Supersound
