Ags Connolly is a traditional country singer-songwriter from Oxfordshire, England.
Country is the simplest description, but Ags is a proud supporter of the ‘Ameripolitan’ movement, which supports new music with a traditional roots influence.
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 major festivals and as a constant presence on the touring circuit.
As well as regular headline shows, Ags has opened for artists such as Rosanne Cash and Corb Lund and has also undertaken a southern-states US tour with a full band.
Ags’ influences come essentially from hardcore country songwriters like David Allan Coe, Johnny Paycheck and Dale Watson. However, he also takes major singer-songwriter influences from the likes of Guy Clark, Loudon Wainwright III and Chris Knight.
Ags’ debut album ‘How About Now’ was released in February 2014, receiving rave reviews including being named ‘Album of the Month’ in Country Music People magazine who described him as “the closest we’ve ever come to an English Willie Nelson”.
The album was also heralded as “a masterpiece” by Maverick magazine.
In 2016, Country Music People magazine named the song ‘When Country Was Proud’ as one of the Top 50 country songs from the last 30 years.
Ags’ follow-up album, ‘Nothin’ Unexpected’, is due for release in 2017.
