Singer, songwriter and soulman Conner Reeves first came to our attention in the late 90’s with the soul classic ‘My Father’s Son’ from his gold selling debut album ‘Earthbound’. Back then he had a run of commercial success that saw him score 5 top 30 singles in the UK, culminating in a Brit nomination and international touring, including support slots with amongst others, Whitney Houston.
This was followed in 2006 with his critically acclaimed EP ‘Welcome To The Future’, which received rave reviews from the soul community, with a sound harking back to the socially aware soul artists of the 70’s such as Marvin and Stevie.
Putting his artist career on the backburner, it is as a writer that Conner has been more active over the last few years. Consciously taking himself out of play, he has been almost reclusive, living in France and spending time in Portugal, but now he is back and working on tracks for his own artist project. Word of his return is proving to be welcome news for his loyal supporters and new followers alike and coincidentally coincides with the reissue of his debut album which Sony have just made available for the first time on streaming platforms.
