CONNOR NELSON’S MUSIC EMITS LAYERS OF POP WITH A HINT OF NOSTALGIA. THOUGH HIS SULTRY VOCALS ARE LACED WITH R&B, HIS ACCOMPANIMENT PRESENTS THE PERFECT MASH UP OF INDIE POP, DARK POP, AND ELECTROPOP. THE VANCOUVER-BORN SINGER-SONGWRITER USES MUSIC AS A MEDIUM TO CONNECT TO HIS FEELINGS AND HOPES TO DELIVER THE MESSAGE TO HIS LISTENERS THAT “IT’S OKAY TO ALLOW YOURSELF TO FEEL EVERY EMOTION AND THEY ARE NOT ALONE IN WHATEVER THEY FEEL.”
Connor distinguished himself as a musician from a young age. He had won the Youth Talent Search BC in Port Moody in 2014, was a runner-up in season 5 of “The Shot Canada”, and a recipient of 2 “Maestro Awards” in 2018 and 2019, as well as the coveted “Ovation Award” in 2019 at the WorldStrides Onstage Heritage Festival, beating out thousands of singers across Canada, as well as the United States. He broke out onto the world stage as a singer songwriter in 2019, just a month shy of his high school graduation, with his debut single ‘Psychic’ which garnered over 100K streams on Spotify in less than a year.

CONNOR DRAWS INSPIRATION FROM THE LIKES OF TAYLOR SWIFT, LORDE, AND ISAAC DUNBAR TO NAME A FEW. RECEIVING A DIPLOMA IN MUSIC PRODUCTION HAS GIVEN HIM THE CONFIDENCE TO SING, WRITE, AND PRODUCE ALMOST ALL OF HIS SONGS. HIS NEWEST SINGLE “21”, WAS A COLLABORATION WITH JUNO NOMINATED PRODUCER NATHAN CHIU. CONNOR IS CURRENTLY IN HIS BEDROOM, WRITING AND PRODUCING HIS NEXT SINGLE.
