Learn More about Conner Cherland and his Acoustic Music
With a blend of styles from Americana, to Indie/Folk, to Soul music, Conner Cherland’s voice compares with present day singers like Hozier, Ed Sheeran, and Shakey Graves. Combined with his live guitar looping, foot percussion, and carefully chosen lyrics, you’re likely to wonder how so many sounds can come from just one man.
He wasn’t groomed for music. He played volleyball for as long as he can remember (his parents met on the court). As a result, his story sounds similar to High School Musical – a jock secretly expressing himself through music and grows more comfortable showing his true colors.
He is distracted by what makes a good song – the distance between notes and the phrase that sticks to your brain while you fall asleep. He cares about the proper use of words, particularly in songs.
At the end of 2014, he made a goal to write 40 songs within 6 months. Since then Conner wrote more than 190, and some of them are really bad… and you’ll probably never hear them.
Conner hoped that if He wrote that many he will have a few we could all enjoy.
That brings us to the present. It’s an exciting time to realize that this career (and life) is about more than making songs. It’s about making allies and friends and speaking to people’s hearts. Conner could use a friend, and some heart. If you see him, please say hi.
