For fans of Tom Misch, Hall & Oates and Charlie Puth
It's with great pleasure that we bring you todays Inbox Interview featuring singer songwriter, JJ Bloom.
Hailing from Co. Meath (Ireland), the talented musician - real name Conor Mc Quaid - creates a feel good Pop/Contemporary R&B sound, skilfully blending in elements of Funk, Soul and Classic R&B.
Having already achieved some notably impressive things already in his music career, Conor has recently embarked on a new solo chapter in his life under the alias 'JJ Bloom'. We caught up with the man himself to find out more...
In just one sentence, explain your sound…
It’s pop music but with a bit of groove.
So why the name JJ Bloom?
I was making funky music that deserved an equally funky name. Myself and two friends (Conor Noone and Seán Hayes) sat down and came up with some terrible names, until we landed on it! It seemed odd at first but I had seen so many american artists do it, so I thought why not?
What is your real name and where are you from?
My real name is Conor Mc Quaid, and I’m from Co. Meath, Ireland.
