Christopher Owens is an American singer/songwriter best-known as the frontman for the now 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 writing to confront in reflection the realities of his childhood.
Girls' sound was heavily inspired by the music of the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, with their sound being described as lo-fi, surf rock, rock and roll, psychedelic rock, pop rock, country rock and garage rock.
Girls' debut full-length, Album, was released in 2009 to critical acclaim. Its 2011 follow-up, Father, Son, Holy Ghost, was also well received.
In 2012, Owens announced that he was leaving the band and would continue to record as a solo artist.
In September 2012, it was announced by Saint Laurent Paris (formerly Yves Saint Laurent) that Owens would be the face of their Spring/Summer campaign, to be shot by returning Creative Director Hedi Slimane. A promotional video was released during Paris Fashion Week featuring multiple black and white images of Owens edited to the audio of Girls' "Just A Song".
In October 2013, Owens became the new face of the H&M campaign promoting the Isabel Marant range.
Owens released his debut album as a solo artist, Lysandre, in 2013. In 2014, Owens released his second album, A New Testament. In 2015, Owens released his third album,Chrissybaby Forever.
