Conor & The Wild Hunt animates soulful original songs with fresh perspectives on Americana, Folk, and pop traditions. They encompass a wide dynamic range, from contemplative cinematic ballads to anthemic explosive peaks, with story-weaving lyrics, artful and driving instrumentation, impassioned duets, blooming three part harmonies, and a compelling stage presence. The band consists of three professional and committed multi-instrumentalist musicians working together to create immersive musical experiences.
“... “You’re Not Alone” is easily one of my favorite songs of 2020... “You’re Not Alone” is such a peaceful song from Conor & The Wild Hunt that puts my mind at ease. After what has been going on with the world lately, this is exactly what we all need in our ears. This is pure music with such great vocals from both the singers. We aren’t alone if we have the support of those close to us. We just need to express ourselves and ask for help if we need it.” -Llewelyn Screen (Music Journalist at A&R Factory)
"Conor and the Wild Hunt have beautifully arranged songs with a big sound (a great feat for a trio). Their songs ebb and flow; ebbing from emotional tranquility and flowing into anthemic sing-a-longs." - Jeremy Asay (Ezra Bell)
"Like if Postal Service had a baby with The Head and the Heart, and somehow one of them had slept with Crosby, Stills, and Nash, but Stills was a female and liked modern pop music, and Bruce Hornsby helped them arrange shit."
- Drew McManus (Satsang)
"...Energetic folk-ish pop-rock with strong main melodies and catchy choruses. Great lead and harmony vocals; passionate lyrics about personal and societal matters. I guarantee we will be hearing more from this crew."
- Ken Roseman (Music Journalist at "Sing Out!")
"I listened to Conor's CD and was very impressed with his songwriting and vocals. His version of "Wagon Wheel" has grown on me. It might be a hit record."
- Normand Parenteau (Manager of Old Crow Medicine Show)
“With great embarrassment and with equal joy I wanted to say that found a CD hiding beneath geological layers of stuff on my desk… Track 5 [Garden State] has now played 30 times… the instrumental chorus to set up the vocal again is just insanely brilliant… To think that Conor wrote GARDEN STATE when he was 16 is just terrifying… The lyrics of the song are so brilliant, personal, unique… the local voices, the makeshift bed… I'm off to Glacier Ntl. Park for some climbing and hiking and Conor's will be one of the 3 CDs I plan to bring along.”
- Will Ackerman (Founder of Windham Hill Records)
"You had just finished your set at project earth (@ harmony park in MN) when I met you outside of the gates this past summer. We ate zinger pickles, had conversation & shared laughs. I didn’t catch your set and had not heard of Conor & the Wild Hunt before. You asked if I wanted to buy a CD & I happened to have one $20 bill on me.
Your music and connections sunk deep into my bones, a healing ensemble that in the past 6 months has been by my side through high tide and low tide. Resonating & opening up different perceptions frequently.
I am writing to say thank you all. Thank you for being the approachable, humble, kind hearted people you are. I truly hope to see you perform again some day but until then I will continue to find connections and parallels in the music you share with the world." - Elizabeth Anne (Music Listener)
"...As Conor's song "Creation of the Universe" illuminates, stories begin in wonder. We behold something incredibly powerful and awe inspiring - lightning splitting the air near to us, or a shooting star lighting up the night sky - and suddenly our lives are filled with delicious mystery, latent power, and beauty. [Creation of the Universe] captures these emotions so beautifully... sparkling harmonies and melodies, instrumentation and archetypal lyrics."
- Professor Steven McAlpine (Interdisciplinary Studies at UMBC)
