Introducing Carly Connor - Live Upstairs in Whelan's on Monday 27 February
One to watch for 2012, Scottish singer-songwriter Carly Connor will perform her debut Irish headline show Upstairs in Whelan’s on Monday 27 February.
Tickets €11.50 including booking fee are on sale from this Monday, 12 December at Ticketmaster outlets nationwide and online at www.ticketmaster.ie.
19 year old Carly Connor hails from Easterhouse in Glasgow. Based in London for the last two years, Carly has worked hard at her songwriting craft as much as she has on her live performances and the amount of gigs already done across the UK & Europe is impressive.
Carly is a star in the making with a unique, powerful voice. Taking influence from Janis Joplin and early (Ike &) Tina Turner – Carly has the knack for writing heart felt lyrics for someone so young – her early years and upbringing in a tough part of Glasgow have certainly made a lifelong imprint in Carly’s emotional DNA – and that certainly comes through in her music.
No stranger to Ireland Carly has opened for Paolo Nutini on past shows here and also performed as part of Arthurs Day earlier this year.
Carly Connor’s debut album is due for release in Spring 2012.
