Three questions with musician, producer and song-writer Kelly Lee Owens. Her new album Inner Song was just released this past month. Synth History: Who (or what) are your biggest influences? Kelly: That's weirdly a hard question to answer, I worked in record stores for 10 years so soaked up so many sounds and inspirations and it changes all the time, but I suppose Bjork, in the sense of her mixing dance and electronic music with pop culture in the way that she has and also her micro-beat building production on Vespertine - that influenced my first album. I record a lot of everyday sounds myself and drop them all over the place into tracks. Another influence sonically would be Arthur Russell
