Port Blue is an Ambient Electronic side-project by Adam Young, founded in 2006 which has a different music aesthetic to that of Owl City. The most distinctive difference is that Port Blue has no lyrics (exempt from film speech extracts), and focuses more on 'dreamscapes' and imagination, rather than morals and meaning behind lyrics.

Adam Young introducing Port BlueEdit

Port Blue is music that can be heard playing in elevators, hotel lobbies, airports, museums and restaurants inside my head. It is the soundtrack to my dreams. If I wrote music for movies, this is what my film scores would sound like. Much of the aesthetic of Port Blue is not what lies in the recordings but rather what is extracted from them...Dreamscapes. No vocals.

In my opinion, there is a huge lack of imaginative, unconventional music being created by artists today and what little there is, goes widely unappreciated by the masses. 'Port Blue' is my attempt at re-creating the music I want to hear and the emotions I want to feel.

I hope you enjoy my art as much as I enjoyed creating it. If by chance you ever feel as though you’ve come to know these songs, please consider yourself a friend because in a manner of speaking, you know me. This music is my heart and soul. This is who I am.
