Connor McLaren is a psych-folk artist from Indianapolis. In 2021, a slew of viral videos showing Connor busking outside of concerts got the attention of 2000s legend, Ben Kweller. In 2022, Connor signed with Austin indie label, The Noise Company. His debut album, Innocence, was produced by Kweller. Now, Connor has worked his way up to being the one playing on stage at concerts - opening for Arcy Drive, Bob Schneider, Rhett Miller (Old 97s), Durry, Easy Honey, and avid supporter Aaron Lee Tasjan. Aaron stands by Connor saying he “has delivered one helluva debut album, and I believe every word he sings. He’s one of the best new artists going, and I’d shout that at the top of my lungs standing on Liam Gallagher's dining room table!"
