LP Christopher the Conquered wants you to read between the lines. That said, heís got a damn good reason for naming his full-length debut album, Iím Giving Up On Rock & Roll [Maximum Ames Records]. ďIím not referring to music,Ē he explains. ďItís the idea of Rock & Roll as a metaphor for misrepresenting yourself. Living behind a mask or a faÁade is not a healthy way to live. Thatís what Iím giving up on. People love Rock & Roll, and I love Rock & Roll. However, the person I am onstage is also the person I am offstage.Ē Itís this sort of pure honesty that defines the albumís nine tracks, and itís also why Christopher made some serious waves in 2015. The Iowa singer, songwriter, and performer has crafted a declaratory musical statement thatís impossible to ignore. In the summer of 2015, he shared the stage with Natalie Prass and handed her an early copy of Iím Giving Up On Rock & Roll. She in turn passed it on to Ryan Adams who took to Twitter and Instagram calling the album, ďCrazy and incredible.Ē Soon after, Christopher landed on the front page of Reddit and in Billboard as the title track and single ďIím Giving Up On Rock & RollĒ quickly passed 60,000 plays on Soundcloud. This properly set the stage for the albumís 2016 release.
