Daniel Connor

Daniel Connor has been an integral part of Maine’s music community over the last two decades. Prior to focusing on his solo career, Daniel was the singer and songwriter for the band Gypsy Tailwind. After the heartbreaking and difficult breakup of the band, Daniel was soon back to writing and recording songs with the intent on releasing a solo album. Then without warning, Daniel’s life and plans forever changed. In June 2012 he suffered a severe seizure. Later that day he was diagnosed with an extremely rare brain tumor called oligodendroglioma. After a year of recovery Daniel was again able to drive a car and took a job as a taxi driver and realized it was a great way to exercise memory, hold conversations, and improve focus and concentration skills, while also earning enough money to cover basic expenses. During this period Daniel became inspired and began playing his instruments, songwriting, and recording again.
