Who TF is Connor Mac?

We had a chat with the emerging Connor Mac about his thoughtful sound and soulful new single ‘See Through’

With roots around the world stretching from the UK to New Zealand, Connor Mac is an artist that has a really powerful, soulful sound that only seems to grow more mature and distinguished over time.

The latest showcase of his timeless sound is his brand new single ‘See Through’, a moving ballad that feels as seismic and all-encompassing as it does emotionally moving. Everything from the soft instrumentation to his poignant and purposeful vocal performance feels both emphatic and rousing, continuing to assert what a special talent the artist is. We had a chat with Connor to find out some more about the artist and the origins of his sound.
