Cannon has today released his new video for the track titled ‘College Friends’. I have to first say that Cannon has one of the coolest vocal stylings I’ve heard in a while. That being said, when ‘College Friends’ kicks in, well, holy sh*t. This song cranks; and it’s a pop-ish song! That hook is an absolute monster. And, while the video perfectly represents the song in every way, that song is such a summer anthem and a kick to the balls of boredom, that everything just seems to meld and mold into the music. This is exactly what we need at the time in history; a lazy anthem for the pandemically challenged. Take that, 2022!
Cannon is a 24-year-old artist from South Carolina. He has been a writer at heart from an early age, fascinated with words and how they connect us to our surroundings. He began to develop his sound through recording himself in his dorm room at Boston College, drawing on his acoustic guitar and the hip-hop/R&B he bonded over with his friends to create a unique, organic blend of rhythms.
Cannon’s debut single “Water Glass” has amassed over 7 million streams on Spotify from word of mouth marketing alone. He has performed as the opening act for artists like Jon Bellion, Gavin DeGraw, and Hunter Hayes, and as a headliner at venues in Boston and New York. He has gained a significant following on TikTok, going viral for sampling his baby nephew and his broken laptop in a song, a video that Zane Lowe called “a moving and poignant tribute to an old friend.”
Cannon continues to develop as an artist through producing his own music, designing his cover art and merch, and working with a host of talented collaborators in New York and LA. He is now based in Brooklyn, NY as he prepares for his upcoming project release.
