We first became aware of the talents ofChristopher Owens a few years ago through his band Girls. Their full-length debut was simply titled Album, and the dreamy songs on it recall warm and hazy California pop. Girls went on to release one more full-length album and an EP before breaking up in 2012. Without wasting much time at all, Owens got straight to work and released his solo debut, Lysandre, a year later. Incredibly, he has already made his second solo album.
Released just last month, A New Testament is a country record, complete with a cowboy-hatted Owens on the cover. Of the new album, he says, "It’s a testament to honest, earnest, simple songwriting — 'three chords and the truth.'"
Although he is solo artist now, Christopher did bring a full crew with him when he stopped by Studio A to play us some of his new songs. You can see those performances below and listen to his session via the FUV Vault or on TAS on 91.5 WNYE on Friday, March 6, at 11a.m. EST, also streaming online.
