No Good For No One Now After having opened up for Rainer Maria on tour, Kinsella returned home from his time on the road with an album's worth of material. With tales of lost love and heartbreak, and utilizing his own home studio and an acoustic guitar, Kinsella started recording songs and in 2001 released his self-titled debut on Polyvinyl Records. Well-received by critics and fans alike, the younger Kinsella returned with his sophomore release for Polyvinyl in 2002, entitled No Good for No One Now, a collection of seven songs that combine the intricate beauty of his self-titled debut with more stinging indictments of broken hearts and broken souls that only a Kinsella could fashion. Two EPs followed in mid-2004, the aptly titled The EP and a split with the Rutabega, entitled Near and Far, Vol. 1, before the third Owen full-length, I Do Perceive, appeared that November. At Home with Owen surfaced two years later, and dates with Copeland and the Appleseed Cast were played in support. In 2009, Owen reflected on marriage and family with New Leaves, and introduced strings to his musical mix for Ghost Town two years later. 2013 saw the release of the seventh proper Owen album L'Ami du Peuple, with Kinsella exploring fatherhood, aging, loss, and beauty in his own now well-defined style.
