If you’re looking for a unique, captivating sound, check out baroque-pop artist (Eli)zabeth Owens’ new album Knock Knock.
English-born, Richmond-based [Eli]zabeth Owens has always had a close relationship with music. Ten years of studying classical piano, voice, and guitar applied to their experience in production and sound design for film, gives their music an awareness of soundscaping along with an appreciation for classical techniques.
Owens earned degrees in filmmaking and psychology in Richmond, Va., deciding in 2014 to pursue music production and education. Their electro-baroque art-pop music is self-described as dealing, “primarily with unraveling egoic patterns, harmful cultural myths, and allowing love and compassion to blossom amidst painful overgrowth.”
Knock Knock spans 15 songs, with a run time of one hour and six minutes. The leading track “Once In A While” incorporates eclectic sound effects to elevate the track, a technique found throughout the album. The lyrics focus on experiencing sobriety and what it means to be fully human.
[Eli]zabeth Owens’ music would appeal to fans of Regina Spektor or Paragon Cause, for its quirky, unique style.
