The young troubadour has had an incredible 12 months – A Mojo Magazine Top 10 Blues Album of the Year, ‘Conner Selby’ was released in March this year. He has gone on tour with blues legend Robert Cray, opened for powerhouse singer Beth Hart on her March UK tour – including playing the London Palladium, and he was the only artist to support the Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band on his April’ Trouble Is’ 25th Anniversary UK tour as well as touring with Graham Parker, playing shows with soul Icon P.P. Arnold and he performed at the Cheltenham Jazz Festival. He has also performed at BST Hyde Park, London, on a bill with Pearl Jam, Stereophonics, and Johnny Marr and supported The Who at Wembley Stadium.
Connor Selby (Deluxe Edition) was released in March via Provogue, featuring the songs, “I Shouldn’t Care,” “Love Letter to the Blues,” “The Deep End”, and the Ray Charles cover of “My Baby Don’t Dig Me” – he has picked up the support of Classic Rock magazine, graced the cover of Blues in Britain, picked up a raft of critical praise for the album and been spun on numerous radio stations including the BBC Radio 2 Blues Show. 
There’s a timeless melancholic quality to his music. Relatable in its honesty and openness, he draws from anxiety and vulnerability but delivers it with a world-worn elegance. It’s easy to see why with his soulful blend of blues and emotionally introspective songwriting, alongside his impressive armory of guitar playing. The songs on ‘Connor Selby’ are little vignettes of the different styles of music that inspire him.
