SPOKESMAN Warren Higgins is promising the “perfect chance to see the UK’s next megastar” when Conor Maynard plays Audio in home-town Brighton on April 21.
“There’s no stopping 19-year-old pop wunderkind Conor Maynard,” Warren says. “Hot on the heels of his sold-out London show, he flew to Miami to record with Pharrell Williams who was blown away by his talent, inviting a string of high-profile musicians into the studio to meet and collaborate with him including Tyler the Creator and Ludacris.
“And with word in the US spreading fast about Conor’s incredible musicianship and songwriting skills, instead of heading home he’s just been whisked off to Los Angeles to record with Ne-Yo, who was the first artist to spot his talent back in 2010 when Conor’s cover of his track Beautiful Monster exploded over the internet.
“In the UK Conor has just hit the number one spot on Shazam’s pre-order chart and the video for his debut single has had more than two million views since it went live a fortnight ago. With playlist rotation across the nation’s airwaves, almost 200,000 Facebook fans and nearly 100,000 Twitter followers, Conor is fast becoming the hottest male singer in the UK... and he’s still three weeks away from even releasing a note.
“This is no manufactured pop act on a wave of carefully-created hype, but the real deal – a creative young artist whose talent and cheeky personality are capturing the ears of some of the world’s most credible and exciting artists alongside the legions of ‘Mayniacs’ who are growing by the hour as he reaches out to them directly.”
