"Britt Connors presents tremendous depth on her CD 'Warmer Season.' She draws you in with folky charm and then sucker punches you with her amazing pipes!"
-- DJ Joltin' Joe Pszonek of Radio Nowhere 90.3 in NJ


Hey out there -- thanks for stopping by! Check out below for our new video, the first in our series of "Live Sessions." Check out the other 3 in the series on our Video page....meanwhile, you can also head over to the Music page to take a listen or to purchase our tunes! 

Here into 2018, Britt Connors and Bourbon Renewal are booking minimal SHOWS as Britt is putting finishing touches on the songs for the next album. We had a busy year of music, debuting at Atwood's Tavern in Cambridge, at the famous Bull Run in Shirley, MA, and at our home-away-from-home in Portland, Maine - Blue. If there's somewhere you'd like to hear us play, please do drop us a line- we'd love to get further afield with the next record!  You can join the email list above or on any page here to get monthly updates  - we'd really love to see you out there in person soon!
   
New songs, new shows, and much more on the horizon. Thanks so much for your help in spreading the word!
          
Britt
