Artist Name: Conan Gray
Song Title: Checkmate
Equipped with nothing more than Garageband and a cheap microphone taped to a lamp, Conan released his song “Idle Town” on his YouTube channel as an ode to his hometown of Georgetown, Texas.
“Idle Town” went viral, and he later joined forces with Los Angeles based producer Dan Nigro to complete his Sunset Season EP, featuring singles “Generation Why” and “Crush Culture”. The EP debuted on November 2018 to widespread critical acclaim from The Fader, Billboard, and Ones To Watch, amongst others.
In January 2019, Conan made his television debut on Late Night with Seth Meyers, before opening for Panic at the Disco! for several shows on their arena tour.
Conan has sold out two North American headline tours and his most recent May 2019 European tour.
Recently called the ‘Prince of Pop’ by MTV, he will perform at Lollapalooza in Chicago and Life is Beautiful this summer before headlining his next North American tour in the fall. Paper Magazine, I-D Magazine and The Sunday Times have featured Conan.
