TC Superstar is a collaborative performance group fronted by Connor McCampbell. McCampbell’s production style is rooted in modern bedroom pop, but alludes to 80’s synthwave and late 70’s dance music. TC Superstar’s live set features high-energy dance performances choreographed by LB Flett, Emily DiFranco, Francis Rodriguez, and Yuriko Roby -- all graduates of the dance program at The University of Texas at Austin. Performing musicians include Julio Correa, Mitchell Webb, and Aaron Chavez.
TC Superstar released their second full length album, R&D, in May of 2019, followed by a six week national tour. R&D explores notions of love, romance, and relationships through the lens of two characters, Ricky and Dana. The narrative structure of the album is broken up by audio snippets from interviews with collaborators on the project. R&D has a deeply personal feel and will resonate with anyone that has ever fallen in or out of love.
