Connor left home at the age of 14 and forged a path of personal and musical discovery that took him to Indonesia, South Korea, France, Belgium, Singapore, and beyond. It was in these places that Connor cultivated his deeply felt views on American life and found strength in the perspective he could deliver through song. “I try to be realistic,” says Connor. “But we live in a time where it is crucial to pay attention to what’s going on around us. If I can get people to stop and think about it for a minute, well that’s a pretty good start.”
CCSG's latest release, New Hometown (Part 1), is also their most personal. This eight song set of new material never strays far from the well-worn experiences of love, loss, music and, of course, drinking. Connor paints a picture of a wanderer's life and a uniquely American experience - a rock n' roll band with deep roots in the southern way of living and its musical tradition. Pianos, fiddles and guitars, mingle seamlessly with rich two, three, and four part harmonies along with a thundering rhythm section to create the kind of raw, heartfelt music that only CCSG can provide.
Employing the many talents of producer John Briglevich (Goo Goo Dolls, Edwin McCain) and guest appearances by Joey Huffman (Hank Williams Jr., Lynyrd Skynyrd), Mark Van Allen (the Internationals, Blueground Undergrass) and other special guests, New Hometown (Part 1) sparkles and sizzles, and takes the listener on an emotional ride not soon to be forgotten.
