Biography

Combining West Coast Canada with London's urban sprawl, Connor Roff blurs the lines between indie folk, pop and gritty realism. He names Ben Howard and James Vincent McMorrow as two of his biggest musical influences. Roff's 2016 EP "Chasing Dreams" drew support from BBC Radio London, CLASH magazine and won him a place in the Roundhouse Rising Sounds Program. In 2017 he was long listed for the Glastonbury Emerging Talent Competition as well as touring the UK, with dates in Manchester, Brighton and Bristol.

Roff is also known as one of the front men for leading alternative choir London Contemporary Voices who have performed with 11 Grammy-nominated artists including James Bay, Marcus Mumford and Imogen Heap. Other members of the leading choir include acclaimed singer-songwriters Lauren Aquilina and Josh Savage.

Performing solo and with a support band, 2017 marks an exciting chapter of the Roff adventure with his new single release 'Brother' (proceeds going towards mental health charity CALM), UK gigs and tours.
