Conor Marcus wrote his first song when he was nine and wrote ‘That Girl I Met’, when he was twelve.
A year later, he performed the song at his blind audition on ITV’s The Voice Kids U,
reaching the semi finals, mentored by Danny Jones from McFly.
Having 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 stations including BBC,
Spin103.8FM, RTE 1 and 2FM, 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.
His first single "Looking Down On Me’ was inspired by the death of a friend’s father.
The song is both poignant and catchy.
In March 2020, Conor won Northern Ireland's "Pan Arts" Young Singer/Songwriter of the Year
and released his second single "Hold Me Close Again."
The track was played on BBC Introducing and was playlisted on National RTE Radio in Ireland and on
Q Radio in Northern Ireland.
His third single "No More Broken Hearts" takes Conor out of his guitar based comfort zone.
With a highly polished pop production, it has been playlisted on 2FM in the south
and both Q Radio and Cool FM in the north..
Conor has experienced a great deal in his fifteen years and is only beginning to blossom and thrive,
with more single releases planned for 2020 and an EP due out in 2021.
