Conor was born in Ennis, County Clare, Ireland. He's second to the oldest in a family of 5 kids (2 girls and 3 boys). His first introduction into music came at the early age of 5 in his grandfather's pub, "Jack Conolly's" in Ennis. His grandfather used to give him a shot of black currant and Guinness then put him on the counter to sing "Spancil Hill" and "Sullivan John". His reward for a great performance was always Tayto's and chocolate!

Conor moved to the United States in 1992 where his son Lua was born and performed in the Washington, DC area for a year. He then moved back to Ireland and performed with various artists in Ireland and France.

In 1994, Conor moved back to the US again and settled in Washington, DC where he currently plays locally in the Washington metro area and along the east coast in Irish pubs and festivals. Conor's son Lua who lives in Maryland, also plays music, following along in his Dad's footsteps.

Conor also jams with the popular DC classic rock and Irish music band "Smoke and Mirrors" with fellow artists Justin Jordan, Jimmy Carr, and John Thiel.

In late 2006, to his fan's long awaited requests, Conor recorded his first solo album called "Conor Malone" with artists Justin Jordan, Steve Holley, Jimmy Carr, John Thiel and Steve Morris. Conor writes alot of his own songs, one of which "Sacred" is recorded on his new album. He is also working on another album to be released within the next year.
