On first listen of Castlebar songwriter Conor Ward’s new single we felt we heard a tinge from something off PAUL SIMON’S GRACELAND album.
We have just being give an exclusive listen of the singer songwriters upcoming new single “The Wind is Free”.
But after about six or seven listens i might be wrong, im thinking maybe The Boo Radley’s even or Paddy Casey,
The song itself is not officially released until next Friday July 26th but we have been given an exclusive preview of the track. We will have a full exclusive review on the song and video on this date next week , but we thought we thought we would give you an idea of who CONOR WARD is first?

Conor Ward from Castlebar/Mayo is set to release one of the biggest singles of his writing carrer next Friday July 26th titled The Wind Is Free
You meet someone. You fall for one another. Then they say, “Let’s buy a boat and sail the world”. You’ve never even set foot on a sailboat let alone thought about sailing the world on one.
Do you give up your daily routine and home comforts for a life of spending weeks at a time completely cut off from the outside world. Just you, new love, the vast ocean and endless possibility.
Do you stay or sail?
The Wind is Free is the brand new single from Conor Ward inspired by this true story of love and adventure.
Conor is a musician from the West of Ireland who has been making waves in the Irish music scene since the release of his debut EP ‘Wanderlust’.
Described by Hot Press as one of Ireland’s Rising Acts, his tracks have earned airplay on the likes of Today FM, 4FM, Newstalk, Spin SouthWest, Red FM and iRadio.
Growing up in Mayo, Conor harboured ambitions of playing his songs all over the world and has gone on to play to audiences in Dubai, Bolivia, Peru, Australia and Vietnam.
