“Purpose”, explores feelings for someone that have been denied and buried deep, but are bound to resurface when that person is seen again. The song was written and recorded in his home studio in Switzerland.

“The narrative point of view switches between verses to reveal the vulnerability of each person, removing any concept that one may be more to blame than the other. Their longing, pain and emotions are shared. There’s an honest desperation which runs through the lyrics and bleeds into the vocal melodies and harmonies. I hope the song resonates with something people may be feeling or a past memory”. CONOR MAC

Although British born, from the age of 4 Connor grew up in a musical family in the countryside outside of Palmerston North, New Zealand. However, since the age of 17 he has lived in Switzerland! He started performing live aged 10 and by the time Connor left school he was an accomplished vocalist and guitarist, having played in a variety of bands. Rather than progressing on to university, Connor followed his passion for music and travelled to Europe where he has crafted his live performance and even supported Jason Derulo.

Since his teens he has been a highly sought-after artist for private events in destinations such as the South of France, Lake Como (Italy), Sylt (Germany), Ibiza and Corfu. Connor is equally at home playing the big stage, performing his original songs to an audience of over 15,000 at a festival in New Zealand in 2019. With the Montreux Jazz Festival on his doorstep Connor has been lucky to have significant exposure to world class inspiration and resources. This includes recent sessions at the renowned Hana Road Studios in Montreux.

In 2018 Connor released his first single – a stripped-back cover of “Unforgettable” by French Montana & Swae Lee, followed by several other covers of artists he admires, that found a substantial international audience. In 2020 he released his first original single, the silky and soulful “Spacemen”, followed by “Like I Used To Be” in 2022. To date, he has achieved over 2 million streams on Spotify.

Connor Mac is an exciting talent with an increasing global following, and ‘Purpose’ shows the depth of his strong song writing abilities with its beauteous perspectives. His musical influences include John Mayer, Little Feat, Leon Bridges and The 1975. His other passions include rugby, skiing, hiking, going to the gym and photography.
