“When I realized it made girls like me,” Conor Maynard joked, about how he decided to get into music. Whatever the motive, his reputation for flawless, soulful vocals has made him a global pop star of Brighton, born in the United Kingdom.
It’s been a decade since Conor won the 2012 MTV New Brand Award, competing with Delilah, Michael Kiwanuka, Lana Del Rey and Lianne La Havas. Conor had early success posting cover songs online, but his 2012 debut album Contrast—And the hit single “Can’t Say No” —made him a craze in the United Kingdom. In March 2020, after signing with a major agency for 10 years, he stepped out as an independent artist, harnessing his creative control and continuing to create certified hit songs. receive.
When it comes to performing, he said, “I really sometimes love the parts in between songs where I can talk to the audience a little bit, and hopefully make them laugh. I always want humor in my shows.”
He calls his single “What I Put You Through” (22 million streams and growing) as his most personal song. “I just think it was the most honest moment I can tell about a really tough moment in my life,” he told me. “Add to that the fact that I wrote it like I was literally going through it. At the height of the pain”.
His latest single “PGNL” is a bit more fun. “It stands for “pretty girl named Layla,” and she was actually in the room when I wrote the song.”
