Conor & The Wild Hunt is a Folk Pop / Americana band based in Nashville, TN. 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.
Miles Gannett doesn’t sit still creatively. The Louisiana native, who now calls Maryland home, hears the seamless character of all music, blending and balancing strains of bluegrass with psychedelic folk textures, classic country phrasing with the propulsive notes of acid rock, and earthy blues with spectral ambience. His inventive lyrics marry the probing meditations of Jason Isbell with the story-song style of Townes Van Zandt and John Prine and the lilting rhythms of Willie Nelson.
Brendan Lane has always been a musical person, growing up with a jazz musician father and surrounded by records as a child. When he discovered rock ‘n’ roll at the age of eight, that was it: his life had a singular pursuit and purpose. That purpose has led Lane around the world, performing on three different continents with various performers, which deepened his understanding of what it meant to be a performer.
