Ξ    Producing everything herself, Christine has created music that is a dichotomous blend of dreamy sounds and raw distortion, reverb, bass and noise expressed through clever, uninhibited lyrics. It’s sensual, dark, rough and airy, all at once. The cinematic feeling creates images in the listeners’ mind. Owman guides you with a strong will and determination, almost hypnotising you to follow her into a lonely, dark, haunting path heading towards something mystical, a bit frightening but oh so beautiful. A place where contrasts and contradictions, reality and dreams intertwine. The newest album ~ When On Fire ~  has been released  Nov 11 2016 on Glitterhouse Records, featuring Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees, Queens of the Stone Age, Gutter Twins), SoKo, Karolina Engdahl (Vånna Inget, True Moon) and Erika Rosén (Swim) with a B~side collaboration with Neil Keener of Wovenhand.
Ξ    Christine Owman’s passion for music started at an early age. She sang before she could talk, wrote music before she could spell and started playing the cello at the age of five. Her musical inspiration includes influences from post rock, psychedelic rock, grunge rock, classical music, punk and new wave. She started her own record label after graduating high school and released her own and other bands’ music until she signed with Glitterhouse Records. In 2013 she released her second album ‚Little Beast‘ followed by extensive, worldwide touring with artists such as SoKo, Wovenhand, Robert Plant or Vånna Inget.
Ξ    Producing the new album ‚When On Fire‘ herself, Christine Owman has created music that is a dichotomous blend of dreamy sounds and raw distortion, reverb, bass and noise expressed through clever, uninhibited lyrics. Tales from dreams, fears, nightmares and interpretations of darkness but with an empowering strength that conveys hope and almost makes you feel safe in the dark underground she guids you through. Stories about unconscious thoughts surfacing, observations of surroundings in times where mental illness and suicide rates are rising like never before. ‚When On Fire‘ is sensual, dark, rough and airy, all at once. The cinematic feeling creates images in the listeners’ mind. Owman guides you with a strong will and determination, almost hypnotising you to follow her into a lonely, dark, haunting path heading towards something mystical, a bit frightening but oh so beautiful. A place where contrasts and contradictions, reality and dreams intertwine.

Ξ    Christine Owman’s music starts from the darkest underground, surfaces the ground into a mesmerizing cloud of mist and continues reaching for the open sky. Ξ    Empowering, sensual, dark, dreamy and raw all at once. Her new album ‚When on Fire‘ will be released Nov 11 at Glitterhouse Records followed by an extensive tour with her live band consisting of Magnus Sveningsson of The Cardigans on bass, Andréas Almqvist of Vånna Inget on drums, Erika Rosén on guitar and herself on cello, guitar, singing saw and vocals.HISTORY
Ξ    Christine’s passion for music started at an early age. She sang before she could talk, wrote music before she could spell and started playing the cello at the age of five. Learning to play instrument after instrument she started her own record label after graduating high school. Owman released her own and other bands’ music until she signed with Glitterhouse in 2013. Her first release on Glitterhouse was Little Beast which included two songs featuring Mark Lanegan. Since then ~  apart from writing music to theatre pieces, recording with other bands and touring with SoKo, Wovenhand and Vånna Inget ~  Owman  has been touring the world with her album.
LIVE
Ξ    Christine Owman’s full band consists of  Magnus Sveningsson of  The Cardigans on the bass, Andréas Almqvist of Vånna Inget on the drums, Erika Rosén on the guitar and herself on the cello, guitar,  singing saw and vocals. She combines a warm and empowering stage presence, sincerity and musical skill with an almost unhuman, creature~like live performance that invites you to her dreams, nightmares and thoughts which can be both dreamy, dark and political, but inspiring and captivating all the same. To give a wider perspective of her music and creative mind Owman also makes movie projections for all her songs with inspiration from the 1920s burlesque, stunt and art films.INSPIRATION
Ξ    Owman’s musical inspiration ranges over 4 decades and includes influences from post rock, psychedelic rock, grunge rock, classical music, punk and new wave. The lyrics are tales from dreams, fears, nightmares and interpretations of darkness but with an empowering strength that conveys hope and almost makes you feel safe in the dark underground she guids you through. Stories about unconscious thoughts surfacing, observations of surroundings in times where mental illness and suicide rates are rising like never before. Where the world is on fleeing foot and countries are closing their borders and turning their backs on people in need.
COLLABORATIONS
Ξ    Christine Owman has worked, toured and/or opened for a number of bands and artists including Robert Plant (Led Zeppelin), Mark Lanegan, SoKo, Wovenhand, Black Mountain and members of The Cardigans. She likes to collaborate over creative boarders and writes music for theatre and film as well.
Show in Calgary:
Ξ    When Sweden’s Christine Owman took the stage at the Arratta Opera centre as part of Sled Island’s Poetry Ocean event, a revered hush fell over the humid venue. Fully in command of the stage, she unleashed her beguiling voice, backed by haunting video installations she assembled from 1920s daredevil cinema.
Ξ    Then she played a pitch perfect saw, the ethereal melody filling the room. Poets, Sled Islanders, and fellow musicians stood with their mouths slightly agape, marveling at her talent. Sled founder Zak Pashak gestured to the stage and mused how lucky his festival was to have her. The blissed out faces of the crowd mirrored his sentiment.
Ξ    After the show, a gaggle of gushing fans lavished her with praise and I took the opportunity to invite her out for some photo play. She graciously agreed and these images are the result of an unforgettable night along 17th Ave. S.W. She’s completely at ease in front of the camera, and helped me discover new ways of seeing. She’s also a total babe. Among the many truisms she shared with me: her passion to create is what provides her with life. It’s not a choice for Owman, she fuses desire with action and the results are extraordinary.
