Christopher David Owens is a former member of the Children of God cult and current leader singer of the "Girls" indie rock band from San Francisco, California. While a member, he reportedly appeared in children's music videos distributed by The Family.
The New York Times compared the band's sound to Elvis Costello, Buddy Holly, and the Beach Boys.
As of mid-2009, the band is on tour in Europe and will return to the U.S. in late 2009 for a national headlining tour. They are well known for the use of drugs whilst making their first album, though in a recent interview  lead singer Christopher suggested this is now a more occasional indulgence.
