JFF - Conor Maynard "Can't Say No"

Yesterday, we received a fun surprise in our inbox from the kind folks at EMI UK introducing us to their new act, Conor Maynard. Conor is a beautiful singer whose music is set to polished hip-hop beats. Only a year ago, Conor uploaded covers of his favorite songs to Youtube. Before long, pop stars began tweeting about him. Ne-Yo even called Conor's house, offering his production prowess. Soon after, Conor signed a deal with Parlophone.

He hasn't yet released an official single, yet Conor has the 7th most subscribed music channel in the UK, 175,000 Facebook fans, and 60,000 Twitter followers. This is truly a testament to his talent - check out his GORGEOUS cover of Drake's "Marvin's Room" below. Conor's voice will make you melt.

Most recently, Conor has been named the winner of MTV's Brand New for 2012. He won the competition by a landslide, polling 45% of the 150,000 votes cast. Make sure to check out the snippet posted below, in which Conor introduces his debut single, "Can't Say No," co-written by Connor himself and produced by The Invisible Men (Jessie J, David Guetta, VV Brown, etc.) The production is immaculate. It will be officially released on April 30, 2012, with the album release planned for sometime this summer.

Those of you who like what you hear should check out Conor's website, Facebook, Youtube, and Twitter pages, all of which are posted below. If you're in the UK and would like to see Conor live, you may find ticket information on his website. He will be performing at Islington Academy on the 8th of March.
