SURPRISE!!! A NEW SINGLE!!!

Just like many musicians during this time period of Covid-19 and social distancing, we have been channeling our time to our craft. This is a song that has come out of this time period, desperately wishing we could all go out soon- safely- and get to enjoy celebrating and dancing together. This is “Dance With Me”

For the rest of the month of May 2020, I will be donating the proceeds of this song on BandCamp to New York Cares’s Covid-19 Relief Fund! Learn more here:

It all started a couple weeks ago when my mom and I were talking, and she told me that I needed a summer dance song. I told her I’ve been trying for so long to write a happy fun single for a while, but with no luck. Well, as soon as she left the room, I said to myself, “What am I supposed to write? ‘Dance with me! Dance with me! Woah-Oh-Oh!’… Wait a second…” And I was up from 9pm-4am writing the lyrics and overall arrangement. It was also in that time that I came up with the concept of the music video!
A big shoutout must be made to Sean Wendell for playing guitar on this track, along with his production assistance.
I am super excited about this song, and I think that this is a great way to start the summer after graduating college! Thank you so much to all my friends and family for their support in the last 4 years. Each year of college has felt like a whole life in itself. The period came with a lot of challenges, but it also came with a lot of blessings and new opportunities I would not have had elsewhere! I created a whole new family, and created a great launch pad for myself moving forward. I am blessed to have you all in my life.
Thank you for taking this journey with me, and I hope you Dance With Me!

"Conor was born and raised in Poughkeepsie, New York, where attended St. Peter's Catholic School in Hyde Park for K-8th, and continued his schooling at FD Roosevelt Public High School. Throughout his childhood, Conor was always occupied with sports such as soccer, basketball, baseball and lacrosse, along with being involved in school theatre, and taking guitar lessons with 2014's International Finger-style Champion and singer-songwriter Helen Avakian. Helen was Conor's first major outlet into pursuing music, as she taught him skills in playing guitar, singing, and songwriting. Conor is now pursuing a degree in Music Industry at the College of Saint Rose in Albany, New York, where he studies many aspects of the business such as live sound, studio production, publishing, management, and more. JWill from the JWill Jamboree on KISS 96.1FM once described Conor as a “mix between Shawn Mendes and Michael Buble." Conor takes many of his influences from 90s and 2000s bands such as Matchbox Twenty, Goo Goo Dolls, 3 Doors Down, Lifehouse, and Daughtry; along with classic rock artists like Journey, Foreigner, Bob Seeger; and country acts such as George Strait, Restless Heart, and Zac Brown Band. Conor also finds much inspiration from the storytelling, and soothing aspects of artists such as John Denver, James Taylor, Jimmy Buffett, and most recently Amos Lee. Conor released his first self-recorded/produced album, “Spend Some Time,” back in the November of 2017, and released an EP called “By Your Side” back in May of 2018. Conor’s last release was the single, We Can Dance, which he dropped in September 2018. Conor is currently promoting his next EP, “Show Them What You Got,” which will be released September 27th, 2019, but will be releasing the single for “Yes” early on August 9th. One can find Conor's music on most music distribution and streaming sites, such as Spotify, iTunes, Google Play, Pandora, Amazon Music, YouTube, and more. His song “Spend Some Time” received notoriety as it was featured in and was a finalist for The Taste of Country Hometown Risers Contest back in December of 2017. Spend Some Time later helped pave the way for Conor to win PBS’s televised talent series Celebration of Music (Troy Division) in October of 2018. Conor will be featured in a nationally televised concert series put on by PBS, which starts filming in October of 2019. Conor is an avid believer that music is the universal language because it expresses emotions better than any other form of communication he can think of. There is a long, rich history of writing and performing music, and Conor feels lucky and honored to embrace a life in which he can be a part of that tradition."
