Connor Jay Liess is a singer-songwriter, Idaho balladeer, and roadkill mortician. His songs and stories aim to bridge the gap between a festering modern world and an evaporating timelapse of woodsmanship, gold prospecting, railroad engineers, and men and women of the American frontier.


Since he was a teenager, he has been on a never-ending migration back to the days when people lived closer to the land, passed stories around a fire or supper table, and weren’t laden with the stupidity of social media trends and politics. He has always felt disconnected from the modern age and uses his songs and stories to retreat deep into a reclusive asylum full of crackling vinyl, chirping songbirds, and resonant banjos.


Connor Jay Liess currently lives in Idaho, where he works as an outdoor writer and founder of Trapper’s Attic Records.
