Maynard Vs Bieber Fever
12 Mar 2012
New Brighton sensation Conor Maynard is the word on everyone’s lips. The 19 year old has been viewed by 53 million people on YouTube.
So popular, EMI has snapped up the young star and he has been whisked away by top producer and rapper, N.E.R.D Pharrell (Williams) to work with him.
Speaking about his amazing transition into the music industry Conor said “Before last year I had never been abroad. I didn’t go abroad when I was younger – my family had caravan holidays. It’s crazy for me going to America. Obviously, Pharrell’s a bit of a dream for someone like me to work with. He saw my videos on YouTube and reached out to my label and said “Do you look after this kid, who is he?”
His first single “Can’t Say No” is one of the most hotly anticipated releases of 2012.
