This week I present to you all, Connor Flanagan! This dude has got a great sound and has continued to inspire me with his music. Please check out his website, buy and share his music! I met Connor about two years ago and since then I've been in utter awe and amazement of his beard and jaw line.

Not a day goes by that I don't pray to that part of his face. I have a secret picture of him tucked away in my closet that my wife doesn't know about. Is it his majestic eyes? No. Is it his fierce "E" Chord progression that he loves so much? No. It's every hair follicle that composes the epidermal structure of his jaw. I swear I once saw in his beard a miniature antelope prancing around trying to find food. I sat pondering what God was trying to tell me upon seeing such life habitate in such magnificence. I pray that you all join me in my weekly litany to The Beard of Connor Flanagan every Wednesday at 3:00 PM. May God be with that beard and you all forever and ever.

Litany to be made available to the public at a later date.

For reals, please check out this bomb-awesome interview of Connor to get to know more of him than just his beard.



"A twenty-something youth minister in the Twin Cities, Connor Flanagan always dreamed of being a musician — from early lessons on the Irish tin-whistle, to picking up a guitar in middle school, to his time at Franciscan University of Steubenville, where opportunities abounded to play and perform and lead worship. After writing his first song, inspired by praying through the Litany of the Blessed Virgin, he recognized an eager response to his music, and decided to follow through whatever doors the Lord opened. He has been sharing his music ever since, through countless retreats, conferences, summer camps, youth rallies, etc., and the release of two albums, “Acoustic Flow” (2012) and “Close to You” (2014). Connor brings his long-time love of rap and hip-hop together with the simple sound of him sitting down with his guitar to pray and connect with the Lord - and the result is “his heart put to music”.
