He started to receive favorable attention for his music and then helped cultivate this nascent fanbase by being an open and accessible web presence, responding to any messages he received and constantly posting blogs.
His manager Steve Bursky later highlighted the significance of Young's engaging online manner in building his following saying: "People feel like they know him, like they've got a direct connection to him because of how he approaches his connection with them online."

When later asked by Hit Quarters why the label chose him for a major label act given his relative inexperience, Bursky said: "I think they saw Owl City as representing the future of our business. By hiring a young management company who understands the business circa 2011 over a seasoned industry vet, who might not understand the online spaces well, showed a lot of understanding of where this kid was going to end up having success." According to Bursky there was initially some disagreement about the direction Owl City should follow, telling Hit Quarters: "They were ready to send him into the studio with big producers and polish him up to try to become this thing that he wasn't.But we put our foot down and said, 'Look, the reason you signed this kid is because it's working. Owl City released three singles from this album: "Umbrella Beach", "Vanilla Twilight" and "Fireflies". Ocean Eyes reached the top ten on the US album charts, topped the US electronic charts, and also reached Amazon MP3's top 10 most downloaded album list.Whatever it is about him—his music, his interaction with his fans, his brilliance in the online space—these things are connecting with people, and as soon as you change that you lose what's special about this artist.' To their credit, they really listened and they got it." Ocean Eyes, Owl City's major label debut, was released on i Tunes on July 14, 2009, with the physical release following on July 28, 2009. By April 2010, it was certified Platinum in the United States.Young was joined by Breanne Düren on several tracks; the most notable example of which is "The Saltwater Room".Owl City's live band consists of Breanne Düren (background vocals/keyboards), Matthew Decker (drums), Laura Musten (violin), Hannah Schroeder (cello), and Daniel Jorgensen (vibes).Relient K vocalist Matt Thiessen has toured and collaborated with Owl City on several tracks, including "Fireflies", where Matt can be heard providing the backup vocals.
