Biography

A vivid and literal strain lies at the heart of Owen Pallett's work. From the recordings he first released as Final Fantasy, to those under his own name, Pallett's albums are an expression of his rare musical gifts that have grown more autobiographical with each successive release. The breadth of Pallett's creativity extends across the writing of operas, composing music for ballet and Oscar-nominated scores and soundtracks. Such achievements, along with Pallett being a continually in-demand studio presence for his peers - from Taylor Swift to The National - define him as the composer/arranger of his generation. His solo work is where these talents, matched with his singular abilities as a singer and songwriter, truly flourish.

Owen Pallett Island

Album | 22nd May 2020

Island is the latest album from Oscar-nominated composer and songwriter Owen Pallett.  Almost entirely acoustic, Island begins with 13 darkened chords, and was recorded live at Abbey Road Studios with the London Contemporary Orchestra. The introduction is sound of waking up alone, and on the shore of a strange land. What follows is a shimmering and luscious orchestral album that draws across the full breadth of Pallett’s discography, from Heartland’s Technicolor to the glittering, fingerpicked guitar that marked Pallett’s first records with their trio, Les Mouches.
