Connor O’Neill is a guitarist, composer, and producer who is at the forefront of Philadelphia’s burgeoning creative music scene. His music—modern, reflective, and often soft-spoken—is inspired by nature, personal experiences, and life in the modern world. The stories told in his music aim to provide the listener with a sense of purpose and direction, and to create a space to return to in times of doubt. The video of his song “Jessica” was featured on NPR Music’s Live Sessions video series in 2022. O’Neill is a member of Jazz Philadelphia's first CORE Cooperative, and also works as a freelance audio engineer for artists like Mervin Toussaint, Lora Sherrodd, Paul Giess, and Alexandre Delcourt.
