Owen Noone And The Marauder

“We’ve just received breaking news: guitarist and singer Owen Noone of Owen Noone and the Marauder collapsed while performing tonight in Los Angeles. Nothing about his condition has been made clear to us, and we’ve received no official comment from anyone connected to Owen or his label. Stay with us – we’ll keep you posted with any further developments. Forty uninterrupted minutes of music start right after this commercial break.” Becoming famous is one thing. Being famous is another. When Owen Noone turns up at an open-mic evening in a Peoria, Illinois bar, he not only brings the house down, he also changes the life of one shy, introspective student. Together they become Owen Noone and the Marauder, a rock ‘n’ roll band that rises to fame on the back of an improbable hit single – a folk-meets-punk rendition of ‘Yankee Doodle’. So begins a heart-felt tale of fame and friendship; of an unlikely couple, on an uncertain journey.
