“I'm in love with the process...I was that kid that was reading all the liner notes. I was that kid that will open a book and wanted to know everybody in the acknowledgements.”

— Ulysses Owens Jr.

“Gen Y is my band—I’m a bandleader, I have a vision, it's my program. But within all of that, I'm looking for opportunity to build other people, assist them in finding their own voice.”

— Ulysses Owens Jr.
