Connor Leimer is a Nashville-based musician, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist.




Within a few short years, he went from practicing guitar in a Kansas City suburb to staging an innovative D.I.Y. “dorm room tour” and recording his 2018 debut single "Brooklyn" alongside GRAMMY® Award-winning producer Matt Rollings. Mixed by Michael H. Brauer (Coldplay,Tom Odell, James Bay) at Electric Lady Studios in New York City’s Greenwich Village, the singer and songwriter possesses a distinct and dynamic perspective rooted in extensive musical and pop culture reverence.


The artist grabbed the attention of the fashion industry over the past few years too. Connor was styled by Billy Reid at one of his fashion shows at New York Fashion Week in 2016 and continued to perform live across the US. He has collaborated with acclaimed Vogue photographer Arthur Elgort and his son filmmaker Warren Elgort; who directed and produced videos for “Brooklyn" and "In New York, at 22". Connor's current releases both feature album cover portraits by prominent fashion photographer Alexei Hay with creative direction by New York stylist John Tan.


After a chance meeting with Josh Rouse, the two joined together in early 2019 to write and record a new collection of songs. Released in autumn, "Mouth Words" formed in Nashville but grabbed several bites of inspiration from the big Apple. Produced by Rouse, with overdubs by GRAMMY® Award-winning producer Daniel Tashian, the EP saw Connor fronting a raw trio of just a bass player and drummer while taking his guitar work into his own hands. Sprinkled with delicate piano fills and sophisticated lyrics, the effort further showcases Connor’s savvy in creating long besotted musical works.
