Christian Love, the son of Beach Boys founding member and lead singer Mike Love, has released his own debut album,“Only Alibis,” and community members are invited to the album’s official release party, 7-10 p.m. Nov. 25 at Fox Wine in Santa Barbara’s Funk Zone.
Christian Love’s songwriting career took off in 2020 when he co-wrote “Here We Go Again” with Bruce Johnston and other accomplished songwriters. The hit song found a place on The Weeknd’s album “Dawn FM.”
Love then embarked on a solo project, resulting in “Only Alibis,” a mix of indie rock and pop, featuring songs that explore the themes of relationships, upliftment, and pure fun.
The album’s debut single “Sum Sum Summer” also features the talents of guitarist Elliot Easton (of The Cars), drummer Phil Jones (known for his work with Tom Petty), and Matt Jardine, a former member of The Beach Boys touring band.
In the album, Love, the lead vocalist, also showcases his versatility as a guitarist, keyboardist, bassist, synthesizer expert, and Pro Logic sound effects maestro.
