Short bio

Boston rapper, producer, and guitarist Connor Cassidy gained his first mainstream recognition in 2019 upon releasing "Guillotine," a trap centered anthem that shattered the U.S. and European nightlife scenes. Known for his aggressive sound and genre-bending style, he garnered his first attention as an artist during his teenage years by being a tenacious live performer: free-styling and DJ-ing at various venues across The New England Area. At age 18, however, he hung up his short career as an artist due to a node that had formed on his vocal cords, thus preventing him from recording, touring, and even speaking. After a long period of silence and an esoteric journey across the worlds of business, education, artist management, and spiritual enlightenment, he's stepped back into his proper role of an artist at the ripe age of 23. With the same vocal-scar but a renewed energy and hope for the future, he's set to release his debut album, Peace Of Mind, in Summer of 2019.

Song meaning

In his new single “Stories,” Connor shares two personal stories of his recent past: the passing of his Grandmother and the experience of pledging a fraternity at The University of Miami, where Connor was a business student for two years. The song resonates deep pain, but also a search for understanding, as he attempts to put the pieces of his own story together in accordance with the man he strives to become. As a visual thinker, he paints a cohesive storyline of his experiences through his verses but leaves the hook as an open-ended exclamation that can apply to almost anyone. The purpose of the song is not just to tell his own story, but to search for the common duality of trials and tribulations that we all go through as individuals: pain, joy, highs, lows, faith, doubt, etc. This is the third single off of Connor Cassidy’s debut album, Peace of Mind, set to be released in early Summer of 2019. “I got stories of life…”
