owsleyOwsley: “Matriarch” (2003)

Will Owsley, former guitarist/harmony vocalists in the touring bands of Amy Grant and Shania Twain, leaned more toward power pop in his self-written solo work. His two albums show combination of influences from Ben Folds (a former member of one of Owsley’s early bands) to 10cc and Something/Anything-era Todd Rundgren…and, of course, the Beatles. An apparent suicide victim, this talented writer, singer and musician was taken too soon.

Owsley makes it clear who “Matriarch” is dedicated to with a whispered “Thanks, Sis” at precisely 3:38 of the song. (If you miss it the first time, click on the elapsed time to skip back 30 seconds.)

    Apparent Suicide? Sounds fishy. Sad, regardless.
