CHRISTOPHER OWENS ANNOUNCES DEBUT
SOLO ALBUM OUT IN JANUARY 2013
The highly anticipated solo debut from singer, songwriter and former Girls frontman Christopher Owens has been confirmed for a January 15th 2013 release. Lysandre will be released in the US on Mississippi-based independent label Fat Possum and on Turnstile for ROW.
Named for a girl he met whilst in France for a festival performance, Lysandre - written, recorded and sequenced as a complete narrative - was inspired by the events of Girls’ first ever tour in the summer of 2008. Owens describes the record as: “A coming of age story, a road trip story, a love story.”
The first two tracks from the album - “Lysandre’s Theme” & “Here We Go” - are available to stream at www.christopherowensonline.com.
Lysandre was recorded at Hobby Shop Studios, Los Angeles. Written entirely by Christopher Owens (guitar, vocals) the album was recorded with musicians Evan Weiss (guitar), Matthew Kallman (keyboard), Vince Meghrouni (saxophone and flute), David Sutton (bass), Seth Kasper (drums), Hannah Hunt (backing vocals) and Cally Robertson (backing vocals).
