Conor & The Wild Hunt is a Folk-Pop / Americana band based in Baltimore, MD. They animate soulful original songs with fresh perspectives on Americana, Folk, and Pop traditions. Their music encompasses a wide dynamic range, from contemplative cinematic ballads to anthemic explosive peaks, with story-weaving lyrics, artful and driving instrumentation, impassioned duets, blooming three part harmonies, and a compelling stage presence. Often compared to Mumford and Sons, The Head and the Heart, Sufjan Stevens, and John Mayer, they strike a balance between familiar and fresh, satisfaction and surprise.
Conor & The Wild Hunt released their debut album titled 'You're Not Alone' in September of 2019. They've shared bills with bands such as The War and Treaty, Stella Donnelly, Christian Lopez, Illiterate Light, Satsang, Falls, Ruen Brothers, Ezra Bell, Kelsey Waldon, Yarn, Dustin Thomas, and Crack the Sky. Conor Brendan has performed with artists such as Peter Yarrow and Trevor Hall.
They have performed at major venues such as the Filene Center at Wolf Trap, Mauch Chunk Opera House, World Café Live, Rams Head Live, Rams Head On Stage, The 8x10, Gordon Center Theater, Metro Gallery, Mercury Lounge, Rockwood Music Hall, The Bitter End, Oregon Ridge Amphitheater, The Cabooze, and the Altamont Theater, among many others, including Boulder Theatre with Trevor Hall, Wookiefoot, Earth Guardians, and Tubby Love. Conor is also an activist and a water protector who spent a month on the front lines of Standing Rock. During this time, he performed in multiple concerts to support the Sioux Nation, solo and accompanying One Tribe and Peter Yarrow.
