From growing up in Dallas, studying at Yale, and eventually moving to Nashville, music has always played an important role in Conner Youngblood's life. He began by playing clarinet and banjo in middle school and eventually started writing and recording songs in his college dorm. Influenced early on by artists like Elliott Smith, Gorillaz and Sufjan Stevens, Conner's music focuses on the beauty in intricate, original instrumentation, simplicity in song structure and mostly introspective lyrics. The result is a sound much bigger than your typical singer-songwriter as he buckles down to carving out his own niche.

After a 2016 that saw him partner with Ninja Tune imprint Counter Records, release “The Generation of Lift EP” to retailers for the first time and share one-off single “Sulphur Springs” via Zane Lowe Beats 1 Radio, Nashville-by-way-of-Dallas artist Conner Youngblood is back to share his first piece of new music in 2017. The song titled "Everyday" is a collaborative effort with Nas-endorsed vocalist Nylo and finds Conner showcasing the breadth of his musical knowledge playing a charango, a 6-string ukulele and a cuatro, among other instruments. 

Nylo explains the origins of the collaboration: "I actually met Conner by hearing his music echoing out of an office in Epic Records. I ran in overwhelmed with joy that there was music without a dance, four-on-the-floor style kick pattern for once!" 

Conner goes on to describe how the song came together: "The whole thing came about pretty naturally and pretty patiently. We wrote the music one night together in LA, and didn't finish writing lyrics or recording vocals until the next time we could get together in Dallas maybe four or five months later. It was an attempt at making an upbeat song, just to kind of step away from the usual moody and quiet vibes Nylo and I typically write."
