Born “Connor Burns” in Palo Alto, California, CONNOR BVRNS is a 21 year old record producer.
At a very young age, CONNOR BVRNS was diagnosed with a condition known as Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD). This meant that reception of sound was challenging, and this made him different. He paid close attention to his environment, the people around him, and the nuances of sound to compensate. In spite of being different, he grew confident. Connor found his CAPD to be an asset that set him apart from other artists. He could distinguish between certain frequencies of sound that most people could not identify or hear. In addition to having perfect pitch, he found he had the ability to see music in colors. This unique talent, called synesthesia, allows Connor to see and hear in color, aiding him in identifying pitch with great precision. Studying sound, people, music, and art became the foundation of his formative years.
Connor was intrigued by electronic dance music and inspired by the intense reaction he experienced at EDM shows at his family’s concert venue in Park City, UT. He studied Skrillex, and was moved by Skrillex’s ability to influence people through music. This ignited Connor’s desire to create original, emotional works born from a personal perspective and soundscape. Through his development in electronic music he has grown into using his own voice in his music.
2020 was the debut year for the CONNOR BVRNS project with the first chapter of music consisting of singles “Anthem”, “Innocence”, and “Wreck My Night”. 2021 will be the next chapter to show the growth into next level musician.
