Introducing Conor Dardis

EMERGING suburban folk artist Conor Dardis has shared a series of tracks.

The Dublin-born singer-songwriter - now living in Preston, Lancashire - got in touch with RealSoundsOK to tell us about his music.

He said: "My songs are set in the working class suburban Dublin of my formative years. They depict everyday local characters as the negotiate life's various pressures and challenges.

"The stories and themes could be pulled from the pages of an evening newspaper - singing about railway stations, butcher shops and endless cups of tea.

"The songs lack sentimentality and instead capture those small neighbourhood details that typically slip through the cracks. The whispered conversations at the pub about the couple whose marriage is floundering. Or the rumour about the wild kid who has found unlikely and fleeting calm in a new girlfriend."

You can listen yourself below and catch up with on on Twitter @cjdardis.
