UK Pop Star Conor Maynard Preps For US Television Debut On NBC’s “Today Show” While Ready To Release His Collaboration With Ne-Yo
October 15th, 2012 — New York, NY — Following the storm of Top 40 radio rotations of the debut single “Vegas Girl”, UK sensation Conor Maynard will return to the U.S. on October 16th to make his American television debut on The Today Show, performing the song with a full band. The British Pop Sensation will then travel directly from Rockefeller Center after his performance via his #MayniacExpress bus with a gaggle of devoted ‘Mayniacs’ to the Empire State Building, spreading Conor-mayhem fever from the top of the historic building across the entire city. The next day, October 17th, Conor will stop by VH1’s Big Morning Buzz for a special acoustic performance of “Vegas Girl”.
The TV appearances are sure to increase anticipation for the U.S. release of Maynard’s debut album, Contrast, which debuted on the UK Album chart at No. 1 in August. Due for release by Capitol Records on January 8th, 2013, Contrast is a genre-defying blend of innovative R&B, dramatic hip-hop soundscapes, and stadium-scaling pop anthems that manage to be both incredibly cool and commercially appealing.
Right now Conor’s U.S. fans (a.k.a. “Mayniacs”) can help plan a tour for Conor by going to http://mayniacmap.com and signing in using their social networks. The more fans tweet, share, watch, comment and like Conor-related content, the more points they earn for their city. The top five cities will get a free performance from Conor this winter. Conor’s second US single “Turn Around” was also recently serviced to American Pop music outlets following “Vegas Girl.” “Turn Around” helps bring Conor’s career as a new Pop star to a higher level, because it features a guest appearance acclaimed singer/song writer/producer, Ne-Yo. This is a special milestone in Conor’s career because, like Justin Bieber had done by collaborating with Chris Brown, Conor was able to team up with one of the artists he covered on YouTube, which eventually lead to him being discovered.
