Ags Connolly is a traditional country singer-songwriter from West Oxfordshire in the UK. Country is the simplest description, but Ags is a proud supporter of Dale Watson’s ‘Ameripolitan’ movement, which supports new music with a roots influence, away from the modern incarnation of country that exists today (you know the stuff…).
Having attempted to write songs for years, Ags found the confidence to take it seriously after attending a workshop with Nashville super-musician Darrell Scott. Since then he’s built a reputation as an inspired songwriter at events like the 2013 Country2Country Festival at the O2 and the 2014 Southern Fried Festival in Perth. Ags has shared the stage with artists like Fred Eaglesmith, Martin Stephenson, Paul Kelly, Dean Owens and Dale Watson; the latter being at the Continental Club in Austin, Texas.
Ags’ debut album ‘How About Now’, produced by Dean Owens, was released on Drumfire Records in February 2014, receiving rave reviews.
