Topic: Connor Selby

So,  last summer we noted Connor as one of those "young guns" to keep an eye on. Making ground with solo tours as well  as a couple of very tasty support slots, he's certainly making a name for himself as well as turning out a creditable debut album Made Up My Mind.

Connor has just launched a Kickstarter fund appeal to record his 2nd album. 29 days still to run, Connor hopes to have the album done by the end of January 2021 ready for the big, delayed tour with The Who in March.

edit: 1 day in and he’s already less than £500 short of his £3000 target….

Re: Connor Selby

Well, 185%of the target reached and last 3 days to go.... So, if you haven't, why not?

Darlington Forum - 11-2-22

Darlington Rhythm & Blues Club @ Darlington Forum - good to be back through your doors again after a couple of years. Always a warm welcome from Mike Prendergast and Ian Ross as well as one of the best coffees in Darlo.
So what drew me out? Well it was rising Blues star Connor Selby making his Darlington debut, and I've been wanting to catch this tyke for a good while now. The lad has a good respect for the more "Chicago" Blues style, masterful feel for the more BB King Blues vibe with a touch of Bobby "Blues" Bland, and have to say he gave a solid showing on stage, though I felt that it wasn't until the 2nd set that he really got his groove on; maybe a little road-rusty....? Solid, but not spectacular.

Lovely vibrato , phrasing and vocals

Re: Connor Selby

Just had word that Connor has been signed up to the Provogue label, part of the Mascot family; so in with some very good company.

Congratulations to Connor.

Re: Connor Selby

So along with Connor, as featured here, another band that's been making big noises over here is The Cinelli Brothers. They've been bubbling around the circuit, along with Connor over the last couple of years: I don't think they've had their due mention on here, so here's an introduction:-

Make You Mine - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=muIbfQVg0Hc
Feel So Bad - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eo5iYj5fI-M

I'l be catching up with The Cinelli Bros later in the year, so expect a full, dedicated report then.
