A perfect musical companion for those fleeting moments of genuine appreciation that belong to every woman.

With a performance that is both delicate and arresting, singer-songwriter Jack Conman delivers a folk-flavored exposition of femininity and the mysterious power of emotional honesty. Born in Hull, and now based out of Manchester, Conman has enjoyed spins from Huw Stephens on BBC Radio 1, performed at BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend, and make CLASH’s coveted Next Wave feature.

Using little more than an acoustic guitar and his singular, honey-drenched vocal aesthetic, latest single "The Beauty Of Women" finds Jack singing about being in awe of women—as an entity, and a counterforce for toxic male bravado.

Women have taught me some of the most valuable lessons & I feel really honoured to have my female close friends & relatives. Without these women in my life I’d definitely be less of a person. [The Beauty Of Women] is not a romantic love song as such but more a love song for a few different friends of mine. — Jack Conman

Citing Jeff Buckley, Pete Doherty, Aretha Franklin, and Chet Baker as musical influences, Jack started his musical journey as the drummer in a Nickelback cover band at the age of 8. As a teenager, he signed with Warren Records through the innovative, Hull-based Warren Youth Project. As Jack Conman now prepares for his 2nd album "Seventh Sense Libido," this inviting track provides a gorgeous preview of his evolution as a songwriter and performer. "The Beauty Of Women" exposes the subtle power of the acoustic guitar to carry an arrangement, as Conman delivers a kind of tenderness that sparkles with intimacy and retro jazz-pop vibes—a perfect musical companion for those fleeting moments of genuine appreciation that belong to every woman.

Jack Conman exploded onto the scene in 2017 with the release of his debut album Heddison, featuring key tracks Greatly Hasty and Oxytocin, which collectively have received more than a million streams on Spotify.
