~ John Connolly ~

John Connolly is a gutsy singer/songwriter with a strong stage presence.

In the spring of 2010, John travelled to Nashville to record an album with legendary Nova Scotia-born producer Brian Ahern (Emmylou Harris, Roy Orbison, Johnny Cash). This album, “The Wind”, is now available from itunes and Sandbar Music.

Recounting the story of the album, John says “I started going to Nashville in 2008 to work on the craft of songwriting. When I was there, I approached Brian Ahern because I love his work as a producer. We struck up a friendship and when the time came for me to record, I called on Brian. He opened the doors of his studio to me. It was an incredible experience working with Brian and his longtime engineer, Donivan Cowart. Surrounded by vintage gear in a funky Nashville mansion, we recorded ‘The Wind.’”

John has received three Music PEI awards and shared the stage with likes of Joel Plaskett, Cuff The Duke and Gordie Sampson. He has showcased at the ECMAs, Contact East and the Music PEI International Showcase.
John will be on the road for a large part of the next year in support of “The Wind.”

"This album has something for everyone.There's echoes of Springsteen, hats off to Cocker, some Lightfoot story telling, a tribute to Gene MacLellan, a little cocktail music but most of all it has John Connolly with his distinctive but electic sound and his love of the music he shares with you on this disc.It don't get much better! No Way! No How!"
