‘Foolish’, The brand new single from Claydon Connor, out Nov 18th. Claydon has worked closely with award winning Canadian producer Murray Pulver (Bros.Landreth) for much of the summer, “It was an absolute privaledge to work alongside Murray, even though we were on opposite sides of the globe we connected really well and he was the perfect producer to have on board, takes good songs and makes them great’.As a producer, Murray is renowned for his musical depth and ability to highlight what’s best for each song, he’s done just that with ‘Foolish’, a reflective track capturing life’s universal lows, using them as a metaphor for a questionable relationship. ‘Foolish’ epitomises where Claydon is now as an artist, a noticeable move forward since the release of his album ‘Under The Big Sky’ in 2014.
Claydon has achieved success on the road too, playing at the O2 for Country to Country festival as well as live sessions on both BBC Introducing and Amazing Radio. Other highlights include supporting Nashville duo ‘Striking Matches’ as well as making a mark overseas with a trip to Nashville where he showcased ‘Under The Big Sky’ to the likes of ‘The Bluebird’, ‘Belcourt Taps’ & ‘The Wild Horse Saloon’ along with several other great ‘Music City’ venues. This year he has opened for Nashville’s Sarah Darling, supported 80’s pop/soul legend Andrew Roachford as part of his latest tour as well as one of Nashvilles fastest rising talents Cale Tyson. Claydon also secured slots at several UK festivals including the legendary Isle of Wight Festival.
