It has been confirmed that the incredible Isaiah "Ikey" Owens (the Mars Volta, Jack White, Free Moral Agents, El-P, Saul Williams, and many more) died from a heart attack whilst touring with Jack White in Mexico. He was aged just 38.

Third Man Records posted the following note on their website:

"It is with great sadness that we tell the world of the passing of the incredible musician Isaiah "Ikey" Owens. He will be missed and loved forever by his family, friends, bandmates and fans.

Ikey Owens was an astounding keyboard player in Jack White's backing band. He also played with Mars Volta, Free Moral Agents, and many other projects.

Out of respect for Ikey, the remaining shows of the Jack White Tour in Mexico have been cancelled.

We will all miss you Ikey. You were and are an incredible artist."


Our thoughts to out to his friends and family.
