Last summer, Des Moines-based singer, songwriter and performer Christopher The Conquered was sharing a stage with Natalie Prass. He handed her an early copy of his new album I'm Giving Up On Rock & Roll. She in turn passed it on to Ryan Adams. After hearing it, Adams expressed his enthusiasm about the record on various online platforms. Adams called Christopher "the real deal," and the album "crazy and incredible." I'm Giving Up On Rock & Roll was recorded at famed Ardent Studios in Memphis, with Patrick Tape Fleming producing. The album is out on Iowa's own Maximum Ames Records, and now everyone can enjoy Christopher The Conquered's intriguing lyrics and resounding piano melodies!
