I believe that childhood is when many of our passions emerge and are most pronounced.
On episode 39, we hear from Connor Benjamin Littlejohn, aka DJ Connor B on Soundcloud and @DJConnorB on Twitter. Connor is an 8 year old music phenom (and my son) – a pianist, composer and producer who has already jammed with the likes of Grammy award-winning Robert Glasper – his musical idol.
Connor talks about finding his passion for music as early as 2 years of age, why he’s so disciplined about producing new music, his experience meeting his musical idol Robert Glasper, how and where he gets ideas for his songs and how he goes about bringing them to life.
He shares two of the four songs from his latest EP “Return of the B” and plays a new untitled original tune on piano.
Enjoy the interview with this dynamic young genius – you may be inspired to revisit your childhood passions.
