The coroner has determined that Ikey Owens died from a heart attack the morning of October 14th at approximately 4 am. The only drugs found in his room were a small amount of marijuana.
Ikey, born Isaiah Randolph Owens was a GRAMMY award winning artist best known for his work with Jack White, the Mars Volta, De Facto and Free Moral Agents, among others. He was a beloved member of the music community as well as his hometown of Long Beach, CA.
It is with great sadness that we tell the world of the passing of the incredible musician Isaiah "Ikey" Owens. He will be missed and loved forever by his family, friends, bandmates and fans.
Ikey Owens was an astounding keyboard player in Jack White's backing band. He also played with Mars Volta, Free Moral Agents, and many other projects.
Out of respect for Ikey, the remaining shows of the Jack White Tour in Mexico have been cancelled.
We will all miss you Ikey. You were and are an incredible artist.
We are so pleased to present to you the debut record from The Girl Who Could Play Anything.... Miss Olivia Jean! Bathtub Love Killings, produced by Jack White himself, showcases Olivia Jean as a songwriting force to be reckoned with, a multi-instrumentalist who can play damn near every instrument she gets her hands on, and a expert hunter of the elusive ear worm.
Yesterday, Olivia Jean and Third Man Records hosted a very successful blood drive in our Blue Room, offering tickets to Devil's Night and an exclusive lavender-colored version of Bathtub Love Killings to those willing to be drained in the name of helping the American Red Cross help others. Thank you to all who "paid by the pint." We can't wait to spook you in a few weeks...
