ABOUT THE ALBUM
Coming of Age is the debut album of Richmond-based artist, Elizabeth Owens. Loosely held together by a narrative fairy tale, the album follows the lone journey of a young princess who awakens from a deep slumber to discover she’s been trapped in "The Tower of Forgetting" for many years. Thirsty for meaning (and with the help of her past and future selves), the princess escapes the tower and ventures into the unknown to remember the truth about who she is and how and why she was locked away.
Composed, arranged and mixed by Owens, this dreamy psychedelic/folk-rock fairy tale is an intimate, autobiographical work. Home-video soundscapes offer cinematic glimpses into their emotional world, while sparkling (sometimes heavy) guitar lines paired with raw lyrics express slices of wisdom as shimmering melodic truths.
