About the Artist
Connor Desai is an electroacoustic indie-pop singer-songstress based in Seattle. Her debut EP (released in 2007) was very well received and garnered several awards, one of which was inclusion on Indie Music Magazine's "Top 25 CDs of 2007" list. Many of her songs have landed in independent films and various top ten podcasts. Her sound has been described by the press as follows:
"Take the easy lightness of Edie Brickell, add in the scratch of Rickie Lee Jones, dip it in hot buttered rum, put it in a smoky jazz nightclub, and you have Connor Desai." (Jennifer Layton, Indie-Music.com) and
"...[Desai sounds] like if Norah Jones had never been discovered and was forced to record in her Brooklyn apartment." (J-sin, Smother Magazine).
As of October 2008, she primarily writes and plays with her band, Secret Stairs, which is set to release a second album early next summer. In addition to recording, Secret Stairs stays busy gigging in and around Seattle, opening for the likes of Greg Laswell and many other internationally recognized acts. streaming tracks purchase the CD or mp3booking and other inquiries
