Add To Cart

Singer, songwriter, arranger and multi-instrumentalist Spencer Owen has been Gnome Life’s secret weapon since our inception way back in 2005. Spencer has previously contributed (greatly) to the Gnome Life roster as a session player and co-arranger on records by Fletcher Tucker, Bird By Snow & Sean Smith. And in 2008 Gnome Life released Spencer Owen’s origin story LP Logic – a home-recorded soul, lo-fi R&B masterpiece.

For the better part of a decade, Spencer has been performing his songs with a six-piece band called Spencer Owen Timeshare. Presentation, the 2019 release that is their debut album, represents this era. Tracked live in studio as a quartet, then overdubbed upon (vocals, alto saxophone, et al.), Presentation's nine tracks comprise a personal/universal overview of burly, sparkling sophistipop. 

These memories are now trapped in multi-tracked audio, communicating dryly yet joyously from alternating perspectives – between cerebral pursuits (Stereolab, Talking Heads) and soulful sublimity (Prince, Van Morrison).

Played on period 20th century instruments with care.
