Justin Connor’s music is a fearless celebration of various musical styles and sounds — infusing dreamy melodies, lush arrangements, 70’s classic rock acoustics, and spacey mantras that seek to soothe the senses with a common collective thread of consciousness.

The heart of the music is centered on Justin’s soulful voice, which often embodies a soft, earnest whisper reminiscent of a young Harry Nilsson, while putting his own stamp on defining a unique, contemplative, musical pop genre with style to spare.

Growing up in New England, in a musical household of first generation Irish descendants, Justin was no stranger to a textured tapestry of musical influences from his parents and siblings alike, but eventually grew tired of piano lessons as a child, and discarded playing music altogether for nearly two decades.

After graduating from college, he packed his Volvo and headed out West — moving his way up the Hollywood ranks while pursuing his childhood dream of becoming an actor.

In between acting jobs, Justin felt the itch to give music another try and ended up buying a friend’s keyboard and guitar, which led to a flourish of demos that soon became the impetus for his critically acclaimed debut album entitled, KALIYUGA, which he wrote, recorded, produced, and engineered largely by himself in his tiny makeshift studio at the time, while releasing the album on his own indie record label, Wiry Pulse Records.

With such a unique sound in tow, his music caught the ears of KCRW’s legendary music program Morning Becomes Eclectic in Los Angeles, who culled some of Justin’s tracks into their program’s rotation.

His most recent project is a tour de force musical feature film/album entitled, THE GOLDEN AGE, which he starred in as well as wrote, directed and produced, and is currently slated for film festivals and theatrical distribution.

His most recent album, KALIYUGA, is currently available on iTunes, and he plans to release THE GOLDEN AGE in 2016 as a double album soundtrack release to accompany the feature film. He currently splits time between music, acting jobs, painting, and prepping the release of his third album entitled, MATERIAL LIFE.

“Gorgeous post-apocalyptic pop music. Justin Connor is well-schooled in the art of songwriting…the songs exude a kind of cheery melancholy that’s hard to describe any other way…the music is tragically beautiful. Songs for the end of the world – and end that you won’t mind at all.”

“Justin Connor’s music, though decidedly contemporary and rather quirky in it’s originality, is lush and lovely with production work that demonstrates how good he can get. There are surprises throughout with ambient sounds, layers of harmony, unexpected changes, and shifting dynamics. Yet with all of this, his music remains sufficiently pop, a collage of sections and sounds altogether like something from an early 70’s concept album.”

“Justin Connor’s music is mellow and contemplative, with dreamily pretty vocal harmonies and lyrics that are fairly abstract, often tastefully building from simple piano and vocals to full instrumentation…with sinuous violin lines, echoey electronic beeps and swooshes, his music is unearthly…it’s quite appealing.”

“The music flows along in a drifting dream state, wrapped in the almost-whispered vocals of Justin Connor. It’s a fantastically depressing pop sound, and often finds its way out of melancholy into a bizarre acid trip…in a weird way, it all fits together and becomes downright mesmerizing.”
