“Two voices pitched in perfect harmony to create blue-eyed soul and sophisticated, grown-up pop. Mick Brown, Telegraph Magazine..”

“With their latest single “Fallen Angel,” the U.K. duo has found a way to juxtapose the sonic delights of country music with their eclectic pop sound. The pair even put on emotional live performances with their band showcasing the full range of their vocal talents and spine-tingling harmonies” Dave Britto- Rolling Stone.

‘An impressive and creative partnership’ Mark Forrest, BBC

The acclaimed singer/songwriter duo have a rock/soul edge, influenced by the Stax and Motown era, with a musicality that belies their years.

Jess Greenfield and Gavin Conder, The Kondoors, became a couple well before they became a duo. Indeed it wasn’t until they joined forces with producer Steve Brown (Rumer- Seasons of my Soul/Laura Mvula- Sing to the Moon) that their unique sound began to take shape.

The pair had long been writing and recording their own material drawing on a host of influences from Sam Cooke, Paolo Nutini and Marvin Gaye to Dusty Springfield and Tina Turner, but it was only when they decided to record Jess’ song, ‘Forgiveness’, that they discovered the spine- tingling effect of their voices combined. Inspired by the ups and downs of their own relationship, it takes their raw, organic feel to the next level.

Both Jess and Gavin have already established themselves as must see live performers, with Jess being a member of Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, they have supported and worked with a roll call of big names including Paul Weller, Bryan Adams, E Street band’s Steve Van Zandt, Dire Straits’ John Illsley, Sam Smith, Rod Stewart, Rudimental, Imelda May and Take That. They have been heard on Radio 2, Radio 6 Music and local radio and in 2015 aced it at Andy Murray’s wedding. Their social Media profile has seen them rack up over 100,000 views in only three days of their UK garage/acoustic video while similarly impressive figures have accompanied their Sky TV appearance and other songs.
