When you try to research Conner Youngblood, very little information about who he is comes up. He’s from Dallas, he’ll be playing Firefly festival, he had a song on Grey’s Anatomy… and, well, that’s it. Outside of that, he’s a bit of a mystery (or I’m bad at Googling). But even with the little info you’ll find on him, one thing becomes very clear about Youngblood once you listen to him: he’s talented.
He’s folk, he’s pop, he’s glitch, he’s… I’m not even sure. He borrows elements from multiple genres throughout his albums. He’ll take some banjos, some loops, some heavy-hitting bass, and some catchy hooks sung in a falsetto voice to create something new and refreshing that varies from song to song. While his influences might be obvious, he transforms and blends these influences into something that’s unique to him. Check out “Australia” above.
