Connor is a professional musician and teacher with over 20 years of performing experience as a singer and a pianist. Showing early aptitude for the craft, Connor would go on to study Music as part of an MA at the University of Glasgow, while simultaneously music directing and starring in several shows and concerts around the country.

Keen to take his career to the next level, Connor then moved to London to complete a postgraduate diploma in Musical Theatre at the Royal Academy of Music, from which he graduated with distinction in 2015. Over the course of his career, Connor has worked extensively in both concert - venues spanning the Royal Albert Hall to Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw - and theatre. He performed multiple, international tours with ‘The Choir of Man’ and features on the original cast album as ‘Piano Man’ - available on Spotify & Apple Music.

An experienced vocalist, Connor also works extensively as a session singer in London. Over the past year with Capital Voices, he has enjoyed working on the newest series of ‘Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions’, as well as soon to be released Netflix feature film: ‘Eurovision’ starring Will Ferrell & Rachel McAdams. Another recent highlight: as part of London Contemporary Voices, Connor enjoyed the honour of performing in a 50th anniversary special celebrating The Beatles & their final album, recorded for BBC Radio 2 at the world-famous Abbey Road Studios.

Connor had previously performed at Abbey Road as a backing vocalist for 22-time Grammy award-winning band U2. This was filmed for a TV Special that aired on BBC One. 'Beautiful Day' – the opening of "U2 at the BBC" – is available to view on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1mdDFyrGkCE

Auld Lang Syne

Released in April 2020, Auld Lang Syne features on the album 'Ae Fond Kiss: Songs of Home from the West End', which was recorded and produced in total isolation due to covid-19. Connor and five fellow Scottish artists recorded a variety of traditional and beloved Scots songs - newly arranged by Adam Gerber - remotely, as a love letter to home.

When the Saints Go Marching In

In 2013, Connor uploaded a home-recorded version of traditional folk song "When The Saints Go Marching In", arranged for four male voices by Denys Hood. Recording the individual parts separately, then layering each on top of one another in a spliscreen fashion, the video shot to viral fame overnight! It featured on the homepage of MSN.com and has since been watched by over 1 million viewers across YouTube, Yahoo and various other media outlets.
