Connor Selby has been a guitar and music fanatic for as long as he can remember – first picking up the instrument at around age 8. Since that day Connor has been honing and developing his craft for almost the entire duration of his life.
Musically Connor takes inspiration from most of the British players that emerged in the 1960s citing Eric Clapton as his first and current major influence, putting particular emphasis on his output with John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers and Cream. Connor has also studied the guitar playing of other players such as Paul Kossoff, Peter Green and of course, BB King, Albert King and Freddie King. Although blues-based guitar music has been the most prominent style in terms of Connor’s listening throughout the years his musical taste extends much further and deeper than just the blues. Connor’s listening also includes a variety of Folk, Soul, R and B, Gospel and Country and Western including the music of Ray Charles, Donny Hathaway, Nick Drake and many others. Connor describes these artists in particular as having a huge impact on the way he listens to and thinks about music.
Connor released his debut album on 3Ms Music in September of 2018 and is expanding his reach with every passing day, captivating audiences all over the country.
