Looks like the magical digital halls of Youtube is where more and more pop sensations are being discovered these days – and you can now add EMI signing Conor Maynard to that ever-growing list.
Yes, he’s but a wee lad of just 19 years of age, hails from Brighton in the UK and had been uploading cover versions of his favourite tunes to Youtube, winning plenty of fans along the way.
Suddenly his hits started exploding (his clips have now been viewed over 50 million times) and he was subsequently signed to EMI.
EMI has this week serviced the track to media in Australia, with a video (below) breaking just days ago.
With it’s hypnotic, minimalistic beats and some laid-back vocals, it’s a super-cool debut from a young guy who may just have a big future ahead of him – if his 50 million viewers vote with their feet and buy his tune.
