Quotes From Reviews
ALBUM REVIEW: CONOR AND THE WILD HUNT, YOU’RE NOT ALONE
“...exactly what I needed to hear. Led by Conor Brendan’s inspired songwriting and vocals, this inspiring collection is full of emotion and positive messaging that strikes a poignant chord in ...lush and layered sound. The soaring four-part harmonies are my favorite part of these polished acoustic songs… Many of the songs bring me close to tears… The title track “You’re Not Alone” is appropriately the most cinematic of tracks, an emphatic anthem… The building of impassioned drumming, guitar and vocals builds to triumphant heights that will take your breath away. The rest of the album continues similarly with rousing harmonies, foot-stomping beats and upbeat harmonica to keep you smiling… You’re Not Alone is a feel-good collection of songs from front to back. Their folk/Americana is driven by a vivid emotion not often heard accompanying the traditional acoustic instruments. An album of lullabies and love songs, You’re Not Alone is perfect for a quiet morning or a twilight drive…”

“... “You’re Not Alone” is easily one of my favorite songs of 2020... “You’re Not Alone” is such a peaceful song from Conor & The Wild Hunt that puts my mind at ease.

Conor & The Wild Hunt "You're Not Alone"
"... In the line of the best of Mumford and Sons but with an upbeat direction and a more constant structure on their songs, Conor & The Wild Hunt combines different styles tastefully and with the passion always present. Folk in their nature, the songs take you into many territories: the epic, the feel-good, the uplifting, the sensitive, and the intimate. The band feels solid and very musical with a healthy quote of youthful energy that is infectious with its driving emotion that comes from their probably, unpolluted hearts...
[Dear Mary] reminded me of duets such as The Magic Numbers, Johny Cash & June Carter and, Dolly Parton & Port Wagoner...
“You’re Not Alone” seems to be their latest recorded track... The band’s sound still keeps the essence of folk but now with added elements of modern epic pop, kind of King of Leon, Snow Patrol, and some hints of Cold Play. As a film composer, I can see “You’re Not Alone” working perfectly in many movies with its epicness and broad sound... It has all the ingredients that a great song needs to stand out in this crowded industry..."
