Episode 64: Christopher Owens Live

Hosted by

Christopher Owens is an American singer/songwriter best-known as the frontman for the recently disbanded San-Francisco indie-rock band Girls—and for his curious backstory, which features both a fundamentalist cult and an eccentric Texan multimillionaire. Since his departure from Girls, Owens has been recording music independently, attempting through his more recent writing to confront in reflection the realities of his childhood.

In this episode, recorded live at The Organist’s first podcast event at PROXY in San Francisco, Owens chronologically retraces his evolution as a song-writer, which inevitably mirrors his evolution as a person, from his desire to capture momentary emotions in song, then eventually reaching into his complicated and difficult past.
