After the underground 2007 classic Only Death Can Kill You, emcee Awol and producer Factor are releasing their latest LP, Owl Hours. A self-professed party album, the instrumentals on Owl Hours move from electronic pop to folk hop with a number of live musicians contributing their talents. Guest vocalists on their latest effort include Aesop Rock, Myka 9, Tha Alkaholiks and executive producer Xzibit.
 
Topics on Owl Hours range from curious celebrations, to nostalgic odes to former loves to straight up drunken party anthems all told through the eccentric eyes of Walrus One.   
 
Awol and Factor have been working together for some time. While touring through Canada a few years ago Awol met the Producer/DJ named Factor and began building a friendship. Awol and Factor even rocked to packed crowds of teenybopper indie rock fans when they toured with Montreal band Islands in 2008. Through the years Awol continues to gain respect from artists and fans of all genres and never fails to keep his art and music completely real and original.
 
Over his nearly 15 year career Awol One has built a strong grassroots fan base from touring extensively throughout the US, Canada and Europe by himself and as a member of the legendary Shape Shifters crew. He has collaborated on tracks with very high profile hip hop artists such as KRS one, Kool Keith and Atmosphere just to name a few.
 
AWOL ONE, born Anthony Martin in East L.A. California, was born like any other kid...in a manger.  His father, Portuguese, and his mother, Irish, grew up poor on the east coast and moved to California where they met and conceived a little walrus. The walrus grew to love music and knew that he would do it forever, now in his early 30's he feels that he has recorded his best album yet.
