Christopher The Conquered is Set to Release New EP “I’m Not That Famous Yet” on January 29

Singer/songwriter Christopher The Conquered is set to release his new EP I’m Not That Famous Yet on January 29, 2016. The four song EP is a sampling of material that showcases select material from his debut full-length I’m Giving Up On Rock & Roll that is slated for release in the Spring. The first single from the EP is “What’s The Name Of The Town?” and a video for the song can be seen here:

The EP is currently available for pre-order on iTunes. An exclusive package is available on the Maximum Ames website that features the download of the EP as well as a full-length live concert that was recorded in Iowa when Christopher opened for Leon Russell. The exclusive package is available for pre-order here.

From the opening piano line of the opener “What’s The Name Of The Town?” to the closing chord of the title track “I’m Not That Famous Yet (Solo Version),” the unique musical style that has garnered Christopher The Conquered notoriety is on full display. Ryan Adams recently discovered the debut LP causing him to proclaim via social media: “Christopher the Conquered is the real deal.” The story was even told in a recent feature on Billboard.com of how Ryan’s posts brought a whole new legion of fans to Christopher’s work. That story can be read here.

The track listing for I’m Not That Famous Yet is:

1) What’s The Name Of The Town?
2) God Plays The Tenor Saxophone
3) On My Final Day
4) I’m Not That Famous Yet (Solo Version)

Christopher The Conquered – Live From Iowa

Christopher has known what he wanted to do since growing up in an Iowa town of just 1,300. Without even an antenna for the family TV let alone cable, he became obsessed with music through listening to Motown and classic rock & roll with his parents and repeatedly watching Disney classics like The Lion King and The Jungle Book on repeat. He taught himself drums, trumpet, piano, and guitar, even auditing a college Jazz History class at just 12-years-old alongside his dad. He also found music via faith. Living in a devoutly religious home, he spent a lot of time in church. Mapping out the skeleton of the record from the piano melodies to the horns in his Iowa basement, Christopher had architected a clear vision by the time he entered Ardent Studios in Memphis with producer Patrick Tape Fleming. As a result, they cut the entire album to tape in just nine days. The Iowa singer, songwriter, and performer has crafted a declaratory musical statement that’s impossible to ignore.

Christopher The Conquered will be kicking off a European residency tour in January of 2016. The tour starts in Bremen German on January 7th and moves to Italy in February. The Italian tour stars on February 6th in Marano Lagunare, Italy and wraps on March 14th in Cremona Italy. More information on the tour can be found at www.christophertheconquered.com.
