NEWS: Conor Maynard All Set To Head On Debut UK Headline Tour

There’s no stopping nineteen year-old pop wünderkind Conor Maynard. Hot on the heels of his sold-out London show, which according to the Daily Star, “was swamped by hysteria as the self-dubbed Mayniacs vied for his attention”, he flew to Miami to record with Pharrell Williams who was blown away by his talent, inviting a string of high-profile musicians into the studio to meet and collaborate with him including Tyler the Creator and Ludacris.

And with word in the US spreading fast about Conor’s incredible musicianship and songwriting skills, instead of heading home he’s just been whisked off to Los Angeles to record with Ne-Yo, who was the first artist to spot his talent back in 2010 when Conor’s cover of his track ‘Beautiful Monster’ exploded over the internet.

In the UK Conor has just hit the number one spot on Shazam’s pre-order chart and the video for his debut single has had more than 2 million views since it went live a fortnight ago. With playlist rotation across the nation’s airwaves, almost 200,000 Facebook fans and nearly 100,000 Twitter followers, Conor is fast becoming the hottest male singer in the UK… and he’s still three weeks away from even releasing a note.

This is no manufactured pop act on a wave of carefully-created hype, but the real deal – a creative young artist whose talent and cheeky personality are capturing the ears of some of the world’s most credible and exciting artists alongside the legions of ‘Mayniacs’ who are growing by the hour as he reaches out to them directly.

Conor Maynard sets out on his very first UK headline tour in support of his debut single ‘Can’t Say No’, which is released through Parlophone Records on April 16th. Dates are as follows:

13th April – London, Superduperfly Club @ Jazz Cafe
20th April – Bristol, Academy 2
21st April – Brighton, Audio
22nd April – London, Dingwalls
