Alfie Connor
Sun 28 Jun 2015 BBC Introducing Stage
Supported by BBC Introducing in Sheffield

Here’s a young man whose star is about to shine very brightly indeed. It was only March of this year that BBC Introducing in Sheffield picked up on Alfie Connor’s song Stranger - shortly before it was released as a single - and listeners were quick to warm to his slinky, soulful guitar, bubbling away like a pot on the stove, while he delivered confessional lyrics in a particularly pained voice.

His is a mournful, honest music, often just a voice and a guitar with the occasional finger-click or harmony brought in just to emphasise key details. And he comes less from the classic Sheffield tradition of Alex Turner, Jarvis Cocker and Richard Hawley, preferring to use the production techniques of modern RnB (with perhaps a tip of the cap towards Jamie xx) to get his point across.
