Take two great voices – hers, warm, rich and soulful, his, heartfelt and bitter-sweet – mix together and stand well back. Welcome to the Condors … one knock-out sound.
Jess Greenfield and Gavin Conder became a couple well before they became a duo. They first met twelve years ago, but only stumbled on their unique musical chemistry much later on. Both had already established themselves as must-see live performers by the time they met, supporting a roll call of big names, including Brian Adams, Imelda May, Rod Stewart, Rudimental, Professor Green, Take That and Sam Smith. Both had also long been writing and recording their own material, drawing on a host of influences from Sam Cooke, Connor Reeves and Marvin Gaye (Gav) to Dusty Springfield and Tina Turner (Jess). It was only when they decided to record Jess’s song, Forgiveness, singing together for the first time, that they discovered the spine-tingling effect of their voices combined. Producer Steve Brown (Rumer and Laura M’vula) stepped in to take their raw, organic sound to the next level – and the breathtaking vocal personality of the Condors was born. Where next? The duo are making real waves as both performers and songwriters. As well as Steve Brown, they have also worked with several other top talents, including Martin Brammer (James Morrison, the Lighthouse Family), Ben Langmaid (LaRoux), Pete Vetesse (Annie Lennox) and Pete Vale (Lemar, The Eagles). The Condors certainly aced it with Andy Murray. They sang at his wedding in 2015…

"Having had the pleasure of hosting The Condors in our Earls Court venue this January, I can attest to the incredible energy they produce both on stage and in the audience. They won over our crowd with the sheer power and passion they put into every moment of their performance, and Jess & Gav's voices were made for each like peaches & cream, milk & honey, take your pick. The Condors approach irrepressible pop melodies with the muscle of a 70s soul band, making for a truly memorable live experience. To top it all off, as a booker, they were an absolute delight to work with! I'd have them back in a heartbeat." Hal Norman- The Troubadour. ]( "enter image title here")
