SI CONNELLY PRESENTS LIVE AT THE BEDFORD
Spending his childhood years travelling under his Dad’s DJ booth, in the spit and sawdust nightclubs of England, Si Connelly emerged, with a vast pallet of influences and a suitcase of emotionally cracked songs.
After years on the underground touring scene, London-based Singer-Songwriter Si Connelly released his long-awaited debut album ‘Youth War & Joy’ in 2016, on the West One Music label.
Written and recorded whilst living out of his car, Si managed to impress, Brit-Award-winning Producer Chris Potter (The Verve, Blur, The Rolling Stones) and Grammy-Award-winning Producer Dom Morley (Adele, Amy Winehouse) to help create his debut album for free.
The album’s lead track ‘Hurt You’ featured on hit ITV drama Monroe, and was also picked up by Coldplay, who backed Si’s vocal performance. Hurt You peaked at 19 on the UK iTunes chart, and the album went on to receive radio and television placement in many territories, including Radio 2 airplay and encouragement from Jonathon Ross in the UK.
After a successful crowd-funding campaign, 2017 saw the release of Si’s second album ‘Eject’ (Sony/Chrysalis), featuring multiple producers; Sam Williams (Supergrass), Bacon & Quarmby (KT Tunstall), Chenzo Townsend (James Blunt/Keane), Mike Crossey (Arctic Monkeys). This double- album featuring a massive 24-tracks, was quickly followed up by a third album ‘13 Ghosts’.
Both Eject and 13 Ghosts featured singles picked up by 6 Music and BBC Introducing.
Alongside this as a songwriter, Si has also co-written for The Voice UK winner Stevie McCrorie and has worked with Boyzone, Guvna B, and Annie Lennox.
After a long period of touring the UK, Europe, and the US, Si released a number of singles from his upcoming fourth album ‘Change’. The self-produced remix album Change (set for release in March 2022) features a host of tracks recorded whilst on tour, including State of the Nation, which featured on BBC’s The One Show. Change also saw the return collaboration with Brit-Award-winning producer Chris Potter and Madonna’s drummer Steve Sidelnyk.
2022 is set to see Si touring extensively, along with new releases from his beautifully raw and emotive fifth-album ‘Loneliness in the Making’, set for release in October 2022.
Si Connelly’s long and eclectic career has seen him navigate many ups and downs, but he never ceases to capture his raw, honest, and emotive music, whilst connecting with new audiences.
