Connor Pledger / Bio

Connor Pledger, a singer/songwriter and recording artist, was born in Phoenix, Arizona and raised near Atlanta, Georgia.  Calling Georgia his home, the artist moved to Athens, Georgia in 2010, where he currently refines his material and never ceases in gaining a solid following. Throughout his high school years, the artist found his voice and musical talents thanks to many performance opportunities near his home in Conyers, Georgia.  Eventually Connor added the guitar to his musical repertoire claiming his father and former musician, Bill Pledger, as his work's main inspiration. Connor's music has a contagious new sound that, no doubt, promotes first time listeners with ease and entices them all to become a part of his following comprised of fans worldwide. The UGA "Red & Black" describes his sound as "acousti-funk." His music is inspired by the sounds of BB King, Led Zeppelin, Stevie Wonder, The Allman Brothers band, and John Mayer. Connor's signature bluesy voice, hands down, brings some originality to the slew of today's new artists and sounds. He has performed in cities such as Nashville, New Orleans, New York City, London (England), Ho chi Minh City (Viet Nam) and Paris (France).  In 2009, after playing a show at Eddie's Attic in Atlanta, Pledger met producer Danny Infield who later recorded his first album "Detours" (released in 2010) and also his newest project "Fight or Flight" (released July of 2012). While both albums don acoustic guitar accents, Connor's most recent sound, heard on Fight or Flight and seen in his live performances, showcases his soulful  notes and blues rock inspired vocals. Both albums are now available in iTunes stores around the world.
