Conor Ward Shares ‘The Wind Is Free’

‘The Wind Is Free’ is the brand new single inspired by a true story of love and adventure from Conor Ward.

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

Hailing from the West of Ireland, Conor Ward has been making waves in the Irish music scene since the release of his debut EP ‘Wanderlust’. Described by HotPress as one of Ireland’s Rising Acts, his music has received airplay from 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. Closer to these shores he has played support to Hermitage Green (Roisin Dubh), The Stunning (Dolan’s Warehouse), Paddy Casey (Garbo’s) and Mundy (UCH) as well as packing out shows of his own in iconic venues like Whelan’s and Dolan’s alongside a slot at Electric Picnic.

His latest single, ‘The Wind Is Free’, is a catchy upbeat track with an infectious hook. 

‘The Wind Is Free’ is available to stream now on Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer and of course, Tidal!
