After years of success as a performer in America, sharing the bill with the likes of America’s most celebrated musicians: Dolly Parton, Ricky Skaggs, Tony Rice, Marty Stuart, Earl Scruggs, and others, Jerry has quickly gained recognition as an amazing performer in the UK and mainland Europe performing at major events there. He has appeared at such events as North Carolina’s renowned Merle -? Fest, The Bath International Music Festival, The Edinburgh International Festival and The Winnipeg Folk Festival.
Jerry Harmon was born into a rich family tradition of music. His home, deep in the foothills of the Blue Ridge / Appalachian mountains, reverberated daily to the sound of music in many different forms. Harmon’s musical career was launched at an early age, strumming a banjo fashioned from wood and groundhog hide by his uncle Gene. Radio programmes featuring Hank Williams Sr, Flatt & Scruggs and Ray Price also proved a lasting influence.
Connor Adams released his debut EP, ‘Locked Doors’, in 2016, and saw it reach no.5 in the singer-?songwriter charts on iTunes. Gaining instant attention, Connor was subsequently invited to perform across the UK at live events and venues such as ‘The John Peel Centre’, ‘Camden Worlds End’, as well as BBC Music Introducing.
Connor draws influence from acts such as Ed Sheeran, Eminem & Foo Fighters, which on its own is a very healthy blend of influences. Using his emotive and intimate style of performing, Connor also blends his honest and relatable lyrics to portray his emotion and with this comes accomplishment. Connor performs live with a loop machine, as well as two vocal microphones and his acoustic guitar. This allows him to layer and blend his music in a way, which is quantized and projected to his audience.
Having supported The Darkness at 2,000 capacity venues across the UK, he is now following up from his debut EP that reached no.5 in the iTunes singer -? songwriter charts, as Connor has more music in the pipeline to release early 2018 and we can only look forward to this news from a star in the making. “An up and coming star” – BBC Music Introducing
