Conor Patton’s journey to becoming Conro has been a lifelong endeavor. At the young age of seven, Patton began playing classical violin in multiple youth symphonies, developing a sense of musicality that would stay with him for years to come. Additional immersion in piano, guitar and singer/songwriter production would provide him with the talent and drive to take his musical career to the next level. Little did he know that these diverse influences would translate to a style of electronic music that has the ability to permeate the mainstream while staying true to his innate sense of melody and rhythm.
Conro began opening for artists such as SOFI, Kill the Noise and DJ Craze in late 2011 in his home base of Kelowna, BC. At only 23, this burgeoning producer’s audio engineering background, relentless work ethic and curious musical palate will ensure his name is one that music fans constantly mention. With his debut EP, Axiom (released on Kindergarten Recordings) hit the Top 10 Beatport Charts quickly, gaining the support from artists such as Porter Robinson, Knife Party, Tommy Trash, Wolfgang Gartner and more. Conro’s style and enthusiasm makes him a welcome addition to the EDM scene, where artistic integrity is too often sacrificed. Conro is looking to keep passion and credibility in the creation of dance music and that’s why 2014 will be his year.
