Currently on tour in the UK and Ireland Conchúr caught a rare break to share his roots in music, his thoughts on AI and the meaning behind his song ‘Go Easy’ with me in the latest epiosde of The Lincoln Ear podcast. For more information about his tour and up coming gigs head here.

His music inspires with it’s anecdotal flair, playing on satirical narratives and emotive imagery. This is eloquently portrayed in his latest EP Dreamers which has flourished following on from the success of his debut EP Bikini Tops back in 2020.

Dreamers by Conchúr White

Originally frontman for 5 piece Indie Folk band Silences for five years Conchúr is familar with the ways of the music industry and how to produce music both for the self and for an audience.

When his own style of music took a vastly different direction, at the end of 2019, Conchúr decided to pursue a solo career producing tracks like Dreamers which is about seeming unattainable aspirations and tripping up over your own self consciousness.

In my opinion Conchúr is somewhat of a lyrical artist, his songs evoke dream-like imagery allowing a listener a glimpse into surreal narrative where they either explore the singer’s world or one of their own. Influenced by Lana Del Rey, Alex Turner and Charles Bukowski fans of them his songs become a moving social commentary on our emotions and how we interact with external forces.

His innovative use of langauge stems from personal experiences and his work with young people in his local area, helping them to pursue careers with their own creativity.

Although currently busy with his UK and Ireland tour Conchúr has already got gigs in place for the new year but if you can’t wait until then there are tickets to his belfast show in December available here . As well as this he has also performed at the Dot to Dot festival in Nottingham earlier this year along with Alfie Sharp and The Publics. Conchúr shared with me how he prepares for live gigs in my latest episode of The Lincoln Ear podcast.

There is positivity in vulnerabiltiy, and pride in the strength of overcoming our set backs, having faith in humanity and sometimes we just need a song to get us there, to let us check in with these feelings and I think Conchúr’s music serves to that need.
