Yesterday, Conner Youngblood shared the second track off his upcoming EP “The Birds of Finland”. Released along with the track is a sketch that Conner hand drew to pair with the music.The Generation Of Lift, Conner’s sophomore EP, will be out October 9th. Conner did all of the production on the EP, which showcases his songwriting and instrumental depth.
From growing up in Dallas, wrestling at Yale, and eventually moving to Nashville, music has always been a big part of Conner’s life. He began by playing clarinet and banjo in middle school and eventually started writing and recording songs in his college dorm. Influenced early on by artists like Elliott Smith, Gorillaz, and Sufjan Stevens, Conner’s music focuses on the beauty in intricate instrumentation, simplicity in song structure, and mostly introspective lyrics. The focus on production and originality in instrumentation results in a sound much bigger than your typical singer/songwriter-Youngblood decidedly carves out his own niche.
