Singer-songwriter Savannah Conley is presenting an acoustic rendition of her latest single, “Never Want To Be In Love.” Stripping the euphoric track down to just guitar and vocals, the “Never Want To Be In Love” acoustic video is raw and intimate, allowing Conley’s rich, crystalline vocals to take centerstage.
Co-written by Andrew Petroff (Sheryl Crow, Devon Gilfillian) and the song’s producer Gabe Simon (Dua Lipa, COIN), “Never Want To Be In Love” was released late last month and marked Conley’s first single since her critically acclaimed debut EP, Twenty Twenty. The new release was met with strong reception from the likes of Atwood Magazine and Popular TV, and was added to a bevy of Spotify playlists.
Raised in Nashville by a background singer mother and session guitarist father, Savannah Conley’s musical education was deeply ingrained from a young age. She started performing at the age of seven and by nineteen she was taking home the John Lennon Songwriting award. Her debut EP, Twenty Twenty, was produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb (Brandi Carlile, Jason Isbell, John Prine) and released in 2018 to support from Rolling Stone, NPR, Ones To Watch, and Refinery29. Rolling Stone praised the EP as an “emotionally rich collection of tracks full of moody instrumentation and whip-smart lines” and named Conley as one of their ‘Artists You Need To Know.’
If you’ve ever wondered what the sonic lovechild of Oasis and Dolly Parton would sound like, look no further than Savannah Conley. Combining nostalgic musicality, unavoidable Southern charm, and a healthy dose of cross-genre inspiration, Conley has carved out a sound that feels both fresh and timeless. Her ability to transcend genre boundaries has led to an impressive resume of gigs supporting Ben Folds, Brandi Carlile, The Head and the Heart, Willie Nelson, and Ruston Kelly, just to name a few.
