18 year-old English singer-songwriter & virtuoso guitarist Jack Conman is breaking new ground. A young musician well versed in intricate & percussive guitar riffs, haunting folk pop melodies and soulful vocals, his remarkable array of talents are setting him apart from a crowded field of fellow troubadours.
Already a talented drummer before turning his hand to the guitar, the percussive influence of his first instrument has created a unique playing style where every part of his acoustic is used to tap out beats and rhythms alongside picking melodies on the strings. Combined with his yearning vocals and gift for melody, Jack’s live performances have been silencing awed rooms and festival crowds in his native Yorkshire for the last 6 months.
Influenced by contemporaries like Ben Howard, Keaton Henson and Jon Gomm, Jack’s hazy melodies and poetic lyrics also share DNA with genre heavyweights Nick Drake, Bon Iver and Tracy Chapman. Despite the impressive skill of his guitar playing, the core emotional impact of his songs are always at the forefront of Jack’s writing.
His debut EP Euphoria Springs will be released via Warren Records in January 2016. With the lead single Misty Central already picking up radio airplay and press support from around the UK and beyond, Jack’s music will continue to break through to new fans wherever it is heard.
