Owen Pallett

Owen Pallett Peter Juhl
String Player For Arcade Fire, Owen Pallett, And His Latest Solo Album

Do you know our guest Owen Pallett? Pallett is probably not most recognized for his solo career although he has made wonderful genre-defying albums under the name Final Fantasy and under his own name (including his latest, the 2014 release In Conflict). He sings, composes and arranges and excels with his looping technique, particularly on violin lines. He is best known for his contributions to Arcade Fire's albums going back to Funeral as well as touring with them. In 2014 he was nominated for an Academy Award for his work on the score of the film Her. Today's appearance features the songs from In Conflict.
