The day after Christopher Owens performed in New York City for the first time as a solo artist, he stopped by our office to talk about the experience of coming out on his own. He fidgeted through much of the interview, maybe anxious or excited, or maybe both. Owens' debut solo album, Lysandre, touches on a spectrum of emotion and, even in talking to him briefly, its clear he's deeply lived in them all. Very few songwriters are as able to as eloquently tap the big but simple experiences of life and love. He talked to us a little about both.
