Glaswegian singer/songwriter and rising alt-country star Carly Connor is set to release her uniquely titled single 'The Goldie Hawn Stole My Guitar' on 17th May followed by her debut EP in the summer. 'The Goldie Hawn Stole My Guitar' is about a struggling musician having to take her beloved guitar to the ‘Goldie Hawn’ (rhyming slang for ‘Pawn’ shop) to afford her rent whilst chasing her dream. 26 year-old Carly Connor who was raised in Glasgow’s tough housing scheme of Easterhouse earned her stripes as a young teen playing tiny working men's pubs and clubs, not unlike some of the great Glaswegians before her such as Maggie Bell, Frankie Miller, Lulu and Paulo Nutini. After being signed to Warner Records at aged 17, Carly a spent some time in Nashville, ‘Music City’, where she unlocked her love of the grittier side of country music, working with songwriter legends such as Angelo Petraglia (EmmyLou Harris, Kings of Leon), Steve Booker (John Newman, Duffy) and Jim Hogarth (James Morrison, James Bay, Tina Turner), and from there she developed her quirky combo of alternative country and soul which is evident on this new track. Once you’ve heard and seen Carly, you’ll never forget her. With a voice that rasps and yelps like Janis Joplin, and rages the wild fire of Maria McKee it’s fair to say that with each live performance Carly enhances her reputation as a real storyteller with a natural humour and killer voice winning over new audiences and growing her army of fans
