Up and Coming Artist: Conor Maynard

January 17, 2013

If you haven’t heard of Conor Maynard yet, then you’re in for a treat. This 20-year-old brit is starting to make a name for himself in the states.

Maynard got his start on YouTube, just like someone else we know. He started uploading covers of various songs and was noticed by Ne-Yo who subsequently became Maynard’s mentor.

Over the summer, you might have heard the song, “Vegas Girl” on the radio, which is one of Conor’s first singles in the states. His latest single, “Turn Around,” also features his mentor Ne-Yo.

Conor just released his first album in the states this past week and is available for purchase on iTunes for $7.99. Not only does the album feature the collab with Ne-Yo, but it also features Rita Ora and Pharrell. With a nearly 5-star rating, the album doesn’t disappoint. He has a couple more album promo shows in the US, and then he’ll head back over to the U.K.
