Connor’s first single “SunKiss” will be released on April 1st. This is not an April Fool’s joke. Why release this single on April Fools, you might ask? Well, if you’ve ever been a fool for love, this song is for you. “SunKiss” was inspired by an interaction Connor had with a girl at a TCU-SMU Football game around September 2019. Connor thought this particular girl was interested in him, only for him to ask her for her number, and she said, “If it’s meant to be, we’ll find each other” with the sun hitting her face, in a bamboozling fashion. Connor thought about how silly that was, it being a sunny day and with fate being involved. So the idea of SunKiss came to fruition. Connor said, “I’ve seen my close friends and family, even that squirrel from across the street, find their soulmate before me. This song is for anyone that’s still waiting for the one they call home, or in my case ‘sun kiss.’”
As singing and listening to songs transformed his life for the better, he now hopes to return the favor and help more people through the power of music. Having experienced this firsthand and witnessing how music prevents people from going down the dark path of depression, the singer made it his mission to use his voice and musical talent to help others. Through his music, he seeks to positively impact and potentially save the lives of every listener.
After experiencing a romantic breakup, the rising artist Connor Stewart became lazy, dependent, and lost after a breakup. In his upcoming EP, however, he reminds the listeners through his songs that with a change of heart and mindset, positivity can push a domino effect to the other side, leading the person toward success in the same way his story led him to be accepted to TCU. “During the COVID-19 pandemic, we can turn to the lazy despondent and depressing lifestyles but by changing your mindset into a positive one, where you start working a little bit each day, before you know it, you’re a success story,” shares the singer.
SunKiss takes the call and response catchy pop song to another level. It’s the “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” of 2021. This track features the vocals of Connor Stewart along with the beautiful yet powerful vocals of the super talented Megan De La Torre.
Music and Lyrics are written by Connor Stewart and produced and arranged by the exceptional James DuMaine, who is the best producer out there, bar none. Even the people that don’t like music will love “SunKiss.”
“Sunkiss was recorded at the DuMaine Street Studios in Mansfield, TX on September 5, 2020. This song is pure positivity and feels like being touched by the Sun,” Connor said.
Connor Stewart has busied himself this year trying to stay active—songwriting, managing events in Dallas to Houston, performing at seedy bars, and occasionally day performing as a Harry Styles impersonator for little girls’ birthday parties. Connor is a funny, quirky, yet pure-hearted soul; and he is a bit eccentric as well. Connor Stewart is someone who has pursued music from the get-go and never quit because there’s nothing else, but he’s good at other things too.
