2022 has seen Singer/Songwriter Si Connelly rise steadily up the ranks on the UK independent music scene. Releasing a brand new EP every month of 2022. The London-based artist has just completed a huge UK tour as special guest to Ocean Colour Scene, and Dexys Midnight Runners, playing to thousands of new audiences throughout the UK. 

All monthly EP’s, have been Produced by Brit-Award winner Adrian Hall (Black Eyed Peas, Tori Amos), follow-up Si’s debut album. Written and recorded whilst living out of his car, Si managed to impress, Brit-Award-winning Producer Chris Potter (The Verve, Blur, The Rolling Stones) and Grammy-Award winning Producer Dom Morley (Adele, Amy Winehouse) to help create his debut album for free.

Speaking to 6 Music, Grammy Producer Dom Morley stated: “I’ve worked with the best. The best singers I’ve worked with? Mick Jagger, Amy Winehouse and Si Connelly. You won’t have heard of him yet”.

The albums lead track ‘Hurt You’ featured on hit ITV drama Monroe, and was also picked up by Coldplay, who backed Si’s vocal performance. Hurt You peaked at 19 on the UK iTunes chart, and the album went on to receive radio and television placement in many territories, including Radio 2 airplay and encouragement from Jonathon Ross in the UK.

Spending his childhood years travelling under his Dad’s DJ booth, in the spit and sawdust nightclubs of England, Si emerged, with a vast pallet of influences and a suitcase of emotionally cracked songs.

Si Connelly’s already long and eclectic career, has seen him navigate many ups and downs, but he never ceases to capture his raw, honest and emotive music, whilst connecting with new audiences. Si is sponsored and endorsed by Gibson Guitars.

Si will be launching his new August EP here at PizzaExpress.
