Conor Marcus created his first song when he was nine years old.
But he wasn’t sure of his writing ability until he came up with ‘That Girl I Met’, when he was 12.
A year later, he performed the song at his blind audition on ITV’s The Voice Kids UK
and it helped him reach the semi finals, mentored by Danny Jones from McFly.
Having previously won Northern Ireland’s ‘Cool FM / Forestside Young Singer/Songwriter of The Year”,
Conor released his first EP in March 2019, and has had plays on many stations including BBC, as part of BBC Introducing, Spin103.8FM, RTE, FM104, Cork96FM, DublinCityFM and many more.
Conor is the youngest participant on the prestigious Oh Yeah Music Centre’s development programme “Scratch My Progress” supported by PRS and The Musician’s Union.
He chose ‘Looking Down On Me’ to release as his first single, with lyrics inspired by the death of a friend’s father. The song is both poignant and catchy. Conor puts a lot of faith into lyrics and emotions that have a common touch.
“I like songs that people can relate to, things that people have experienced.”
In March 2020, Conor won Northern Ireland's "Pan Arts" Young Singer/Songwriter of the Year
and shortly after, released his second single "Hold Me Close Again."
The track was played on BBC Introducing and was playlisted on National RTE Radio in Ireland an on
Q Radio in Northern Ireland.
His third single "No More Broken Hearts" has been playlisted on both Q Radio and Cool FM.
Conor has experienced a great deal in his 15 years and is only beginning to blossom and thrive.
