Last week I had the great privilege to speak with Christopher The Conquered. The brilliant singer/songwriter is on the verge of releasing the unmistakably great album I’m Giving Up On Rock And Roll. It’s already been hailed by critics (and is my currently my #1 album of 2016), and none other than Ryan Adams himself praised the record as “crazy and incredible.” In the past few months Christopher has played in Europe, been featured in Billboard, and most recently took part in a short tour with Sofar Sounds.
I caught up with the Iowa native after his Sofar show in Chicago. We spoke a bit about the Des Moines music scene, his musical influences, and making an album in Memphis, TN. Take a listen below, and pre-order I’m Giving Up On Rock And Roll here.
