After making a deal with Universal Republic in 2009, he wrote and published Ocean Eyes, including “Fireflies,” the song that kicked the “football of success,” as he called it. 

Adam is also a 37-year-old Christian and has written many Christian songs, including “Galaxies” and “Meteor Shower,” which made it to public Christian radio a week after it was published.

Adam said, “ My faith is the only thing besides my family that is more important than my music, and I believe not sharing it is a crime to go to jail for, which shows his strong faith in the Lord.

Adam wasn’t active after his last album, “My Time,” in 2010, But in 2021, he made a remix of the song “Jesus Freak.”

On May 13, 2022, he released a cover of All-Star, originally a song by Smash Mouth. Then on June 2022, Owl City published a photo on his social media with the caption, “I’m back.” The photo hinted at a cover of the new album based on historical events that inspired him personally.

Adam’s strong faith, great music, and cheery personality make him a great artist and person. Unlike most celebrities, he is loved by many for his talents and willingness to talk to others.

Adam Young is truly the best of the best.
