Manchester-based, Birmingham-raised wordsmith Conor Michael blends the vibrant energy of hip-hop with the soulful rhythms of jazz, and, along with his GreensKeepers, is rapidly gaining recognition for his electrifying live shows and innovative musical compositions.  

Since the release of his debut album The Garden, Michael has gone from strength to strength, having been picked up by Gilles Peterson for We Out Here in 2022, and producing The Garden events that combine live music with mindfulness, a topic close to his heart, having worked in mental health for 5 years: “It’s a deep-rooted thing in my life, and it plays a big part in music.”  

Thriving off community, Michael practices mental resilience daily, and holds contentment and happiness in the highest regard, especially when it comes to his music. Keeping in tune to The Garden sound, unapologetically himself, authenticity shines through his work.
